The “Enter Sandman” Banjo Cover We All Wanted

Posted by on March 30, 2015

In the past year we have seen our fair share of metal banjo covers. Most of them come from Rob Scallon, but there’s more out there. Hell, Spinefarm even signed Steve ‘n Seagulls. With acoustic stringed non-guitar covers of metal songs essentially a cottage industry, there’s always room for more. From the mind of Banjo Guy Ollie we are graced with an “Enter Sandman” cover!

Not only is this done on banjo, the cover includes the mandolin and of course the beard. Here’s what he says about it:

Coinciding with the end of my first year on youtube, this one took a while but here’s a full version of Enter Sandman, the first one in my series of tributes to all the bands I loved from the 80’s and 90’s
I was scratching my head thinking of the most random way to start the video and as I was cutting down firewood for drying it thought… perfect !! 🙂 true story!
Thanks to my friend Andreas for the loan of his Canon 60D. It makes a nice change from filming with my phone 🙂
I’ll have to get one once I get the funds

If you really want to help him get the funds, he’s on Patreon.
