I must admit, as incredibly Metal (and handsome) I am, I am actually a big fan of acoustic music too. Don’t get me wrong, I love distortion and blast beats as much as the next man, but there’s something about that clean and pure sound you get from an acoustic guitar that I love. One of my favorite past times, when I’m bored (which is a lot, because I have no life), is checking out some acoustic covers of Metal tracks on Youtube. Ok, so some really suck, but some are undeniably brilliant.
What is my favorite cover that I’ve been listening to recently? Well it happens to be the awesome cover of Machine Head‘s Now I Lay Thee Down, which can be found above. The musician does a brilliant job at recreating the track for the acoustic guitar.
