  • Metallica’s Best Entry Point Song

    In a recent interview with Omar and Cedric of The Mars Volta, Cedric recounted that Metallica came to a Mars Volta show in New Zealand and asked if they were going to play Inertiatic ESP, which was not a part of the set list at the time. Omar then chimed in that he got to attend a Metallica rehearsal before they played a stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico and the band busted out of cover of the song for him to show what big fans they were.

    Robert Trujillo also made news last week when he was asked what Metallica song was the best entry point for a new fan, as part of Revolver’s Point of Entry series. Trujillo named the Master of Puppets classic Disposable Heroes as his entry point selection, saying that it was the perfect example of what he calls “the power groove”.
