Una pequeña actualización sobre una noticia que ya recogí hace no demasiado:
A five-minute video clip of MACHINE HEAD rehearsing and talking about their cover version of METALLICA‘s “Battery” that was recently recorded for the upcoming Kerrang! magazine tribute to the METALLICA album “Master of Puppets”, has been posted online at the band’s official web site. The CD, titled “Remastered”, will be packaged with a special issue of Kerrang! commemorating the 20th anniversary of “Master of Puppets”. Starting today, you can go behind-the-scenes for the making of MACHINE HEAD‘s cover of “Battery” with part one of a two-part series, now available on the “Media” page. Part two of the feature will be available on April 5, the same day that the commemorative issue of Kerrang! hits newsstands. Other bands contributing to the CD include TRIVIUM (“Master Of Puppets”), MENDEED (“The Thing That Should Not Be”), BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE (“Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”), CHIMAIRA (“Disposable Heroes”), FIGHTSTAR (“Leper Messiah”), MASTODON (“Orion”) and FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND (“Damage, Inc.”). Check out the “Remastered” cover artwork at this location.
MACHINE HEAD had previously recorded a cover of METALLICA‘s “Battery” in 2003 as part of a poll they conducted where they asked the members of the group’s official forum to list three songs that they would like to hear MACHINE HEAD cover, after which the band picked the 10 most interesting requests they felt they could do justice to. All of the forum members then voted on the final three, with the most-requested entries being given the “MACHINE HEAD treatment.” In addition to “Battery”, MACHINE HEAD covered FAITH NO MORE‘s “Jizzlobber” and EXODUS‘ “Toxic Waltz”. None of the recordings were officially released.
