Rhode Island metalheads Kingsmen are paying homage to the 30th anniversary of Metallica’s seminal self-titled masterpiece the Black Album with a faithful rendition of the classic song Sad But True.
Commenting on the track, the band states: “Metallica’s black album was monumental to our growth as musicians. Their presence as a band is unmatched, uplifting and inspiring. As an aggressive band, we decided it was best to honour them by recording a true to the roots cover of their heaviest track, “Sad But True”. Everything from the equipment to the recording techniques are ‘to a T’ the same as Metallica did in 1991. We wanted to show patronage to them by covering the song in a similar way to how they recorded it… but with an extra aggressive edge.”
