Banjo Player Crushes Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’

When you’re surrounded by goats, it only a matter of time before you raise your horns. This farm-filmed cover of Slayer‘s ‘Raining Blood’ proves that a banjo can sound brutally awesome when played by a metal-happy musician.

Rob Scallon is quickly becoming the king of bizarre metal covers. He blew our minds recently with a ukulele version of Slayer’s ‘War Ensemble’ that quickly went viral on YouTube. Scallon even covered every ‘War Ensemble’ solo (including tapping) on the ukelele, showcasing a masterful level of skill. The musician’s banjo cover of ‘Raining Blood’ covers all the bases as well, mixing hilarity in with brutality.

Believe it or not, ‘Raining Blood’ still sounds pretty damn evil on a banjo with absolutely no distortion whatsoever. Paying tribute to the iconic songwriting and playing skills of the late Jeff Hanneman, this country bumpkin cover of ‘Raining Blood’ may even give you an added appreciation of Hanneman’s virtuosic craftsmanship.

Check out Rob Scallon’s re-imagining of Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ above!
