Metallica’s “Hardwired” played in styles of Pantera, Slayer and more

Posted by on September 13, 2016



The release of Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self Destruct is still two months away, but with only one song from the album released, the internet’s been going hog-wild with it. There are already countless covers of “Hardwired,” and in addition to people playing the song, there are also versions of them playing it with different production styles, like the guy that did it using production techniques from the first five Metallica albums. YouTuber Mateus Elildo has re-recorded the song using the guitar tones of Dimebag Darrell on Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power, Jeff Hanneman on Slayer’s South of Heaven, Marty Friedman on Megadeth’s Rust in PeaceAnthrax’s Scott Ian on Spreading the Disease and, well, Kirk Hammett on Master of Puppets.  All versions sound pretty awesome, but it would be interesting to hear if someone would be able to differentiate them without a video prompt. Metallica, if you’re listening, it might be time to release another song before “Hardwired” fatigue sets in.
