  • The shallowness of Metallica

    Enjooying some extra coronavirus safe greek summer vacations, in almost complete isolation having fun swimming and drinking and reading and listening to music, I also watched it's some kind of monster and I got enthralled at the life of the band, why jason left, why is lars a little ***** and james a self absorbed ***** but then the SONGS and that distorted guitar kind of grabs you by the balls and it's hard to start denying and rationalizing things when someone has you by the balls.

    then you come across things like that. this is a greek band she's covering

    and that music does make you feel alive and want to grab an electric guitar but it's so shallow

    if this is what makes you feel alive and it's so shallow what does that make you

      I like some of the songs by Metallica but not many and they weren't that good.

        I liked Unforgiven, was a great song, there was no selling out, how dare they innovate ?

              I didn’t realize there were 3 of them. I’ve only heard the first one.

              This is The Warning.

              They are three sisters out of Monterrey, Mexico; at the time of this performance, the guitarist (Daniella) was 17, the drummer (Paulina) was 15, and the bassist (Alejandra) was 12. They had already put out an EP and an LP of original music, and since then put out a concept album, Queen of the Murder Scene.

              I have been following them since 2017.

                Clearly not "live in one take" but plenty impressive. Thanks TMM!

                  I'm glad you liked it, -Jrabbit, but I'm afraid you've set me off! I have to show more now!

                  Here are a couple more covers, from a concert they held at their school a couple years earlier than the first, when they were 15, 13, and 10. The first showcases Ale on the bass, the second Pau on the drums.

                      Three of their original songs, done at a Tedx Talk shortly before their Metallica cover. I especially love the drums on the first song. Pau breaks a stick at about 13:40, you can see a shard fly off and land on a cymbal.

                        This is a playlist of their concept album in it's entirety. It's a true rock opera, which tells a story of insanity and murder, and while the songs are great on their own , you really need to hear them in order to really get it. I would describe the sound as punk metal with a good chunk of grunge thrown in for good measure. If they seem a little out of breath at points, it's because they're playing in Mexico City, elevation 7300 feet, and they're not used to it!
                        Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.
