Need proof Metallica is the world’s biggest band? Here’s ‘One’ by a band from Belarus

Posted by on November 6, 2014


Have you heard of Stary Olsa yet? It’s ok if you haven’t, since they’re a band from Minsk, Belarus, and they’re a neo-medieval folk band. According to Blabbermouth, they perform “Belarusian folk balladry and martial songs, Belarusian national dances, works of Belarusian Renaissance composers, compositions from Belarusian aulic music collections, Belarusian canticles of the 16th – early 17th centuries, and European populr melodies of the MIddle Ages and renaissance.” So yeah, you’ve never heard of them. However, the band recently performed a cover of Metallica’s “One” on a show called “Legends Live” or (“Легенды Live”) on OHT. It’s a pretty unique take on the song that sadly cuts out the double bass breakdown at the end.
