One of the benefits of hosting your own festival is that you can pretty much do whatever you want with it. Take Kirk Hammett, who plays in some band called Metallica. For his second Fear FestEvil, he lined up a handful of bands to play, including Meshuggah. And while just about anyone else would leave Meshuggah alone and realize that they’re masters of their craft, that wasn’t Kirk’s style. In fact, he actually came onstage during “Bleed” to solo over it. And he actually did a pretty good job of it, too! While the sound on this fan-recorded video isn’t phenomenal, it’s still pretty dope to hear Hammett. Go to 4:41 to hear Hammett lay the hammer down for a little over a minute, and watch for our report of the show later this week.
