Metallica and Beatles Mash-Up Band Beatallica To Release ‘Abbey Load’
Beatallicaare set to release what will undoubtedly be the greatestMetallicameetsBeatlesalbum of the year,Abbey Load, on 16th April.
For those playing catch-up, Beatallica formed in 2001 and have made a niche for themselves mainly by covering The Beatles in the style of Metallica, creating mash-up albums with titles likeSgt Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band, containing songs such asLeper Madonna,Gotta Get You Trapped Under Ice,The Thing That Should Not Let It BeandHey Dude.
That may sound like a legal minefield and indeed it is – Beatallica has faced the wrath ofSony‘s lawyers but, as reported byNPR, Beatallica have done such an impressive job over the course of their career that Metallica drummerLars Ulrichhas offered to cover any legal fees the band may have in the future.
As forAbbey Load, Beatallica guitarist/vocalistJaymz LennfieldtoldBlabbermouththat the band’s latest effort has unintentionally turned out to be their darkest work to date:
“Overall the album is our darkest. Not sure why it turned out that way, to be honest. We didn’t realize it til we got to listening to the first mixes. It sounds brooding in places. Not like we tuned down any more or played any stoner rock or anything. But the overall vibe is deeper than other projects we’ve done. Maybe it’s ’cause THE BEATLES’ ‘Abbey Road’ was the last release for them — like the end of an era. And we were placing our fingers on that. After a while, I got to embrace that whole vibe.”
We highly encourage you to listen to the NPR report below, if only to hear Beatallica’s amazing cover of Beatles trackI Want To Hold Your Hand, renamedI Want To Choke Your Band. Class.
