Time to get your face melted off once again! This one comes from one of my favorite bands of all time. If you don’t know the band, or the song, I question whether or not you’re a true metal head at heart. I actually surprised myself at how fast I was able to pick this tune back up. It’s been ages since I played it and I remember even when I first learned it that it was quite a challenge as far as getting the timing and the beat right for everything. Even in this video I have about two screw ups, but I’ll take it. I hope you all enjoy this weeks edition of Riff of the Week
This song is titled Lepper Messiah, and is off of Metallica’s 3rd studio album called Master of Puppets, which was released in 1986, and yes. That was in fact before my time, just before my time.
Here is the studio version of this song from the Master of Puppets album.
