  • Metallica Gets Played in ‘Stranger Things’ Finale

    ‘Stranger Things’ fans went from streaming Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ to Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ this past weekend, after the song made an appearance in the finale of season 4. Even cooler is the additional guitar track played in the show by character Eddie Munson was actually performed by Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo’s son Tye. Proud papa Trujillo posted on Instagram, “that’s my boy, proud of ya, Tye, and big thanks to Kirk Hammet on helping!”

  • Albums That Were the Most Difficult for Max Caverlera to Record

    In a recent interview with Blabbermouth, Max Cavalera named the two most difficult albums he’s ever had to make. “I always said the two most difficult records I made were Sepultura’s ‘Beneath the Remains’ and Soulfly’s ‘I’.”
    Cavalera explained, ”musically, they are totally different. But, in spirit, they’re very similar because you’re in this, ‘whatever happens, happens, no hope, no fear,’ situation, but there’s a lot of pressure to be good from everywhere. Like, ‘this has got to be good’.”

    Kerry King from Slayer recently talked to Loudwire about his short-lived tenure in Megadeth, saying, “at the end of the day, I thought, ‘This is a gigantic learning situation,’ and I also thought people would see me and know me from Slayer and if they saw me, it would at least make them think [of] Slayer.” King also said his five-show run came to an end because of drugs and other activities, but that those first five Megadeth shows were still good times.

    According to the Coventry Telegraph, local residents began taking to social media to ask what the “loud thumping” noises were, only to find out it was just Rammstein, cranking up their drum machine to 11!
