    Hi, friends! I just wanted to share a cover I made of Metallica´s Halo On Fire, my favourite song from Hardwired...

    I played guitars and bass, programmed drums, sang it and recorded audio and video (also editing, mixing and stuff).

    I hope you like it and share it (I hope Metallica would listen to it, hehe)

    Thanks, man, glad you liked it!

    Drums are a mix of Toontrack´s libraries, mainly Metal Foundry for cymbals, Metal Machine for kick, snare and drums, and I often add some Rock Solid snare layered onto my main snare. All processed and mixed to my taste. I hope you liked them.

    Cheers!

    Sounds a way better than Metallica's original mix. Actually this is a good example of how they can and SHOULD sound.
    Good work, man!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, man! I´m really glad you liked it better than Metallica´s mix, I´m really flattered by that. I don´t know why they can´t sound as they did in Garage Inc, probably my favourite mix work from them.

    In one of their last interviews they told that they tried to achieve an effect of loud record which can be noticeable even on a low volume. Good idea but shitty realization of it. Actually I think they don't care too much about that.

    The record itself doesn´t sound bad, it´s just that drums are too loud (as Lars´ ego) in some places and that guitar tone is quite meh compared to the one they achieved in the Black Album, Loads or Garage Inc.
