Metallica Covered on a Cimbalom [Video]
If you had to list some words that described Metallica’s music, what would you use? Words like loud, fast, heavy and hard would probably be at the top of the list, right? The word “beautiful” may be further down on the list, or not on the list at all. At least the more traditional vision of “beautiful”.
In my opinion, this version of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters has to fall into any and every category of “beautiful”. And I say that, not jut because of the way the guy plays it, but because it shows off how the beautiful the melody is. And it further demonstrates what talented musicians the guys in Metallica are.
The video quality isn’t the best ever, and it’s in some foreign country so you can’t understand what the hell they’re saying. But that song sure is perdy.
By the way, the instrument being played here is called a cimbalom. What the hell is a cimbalom? It’s a larger version of a hammered dulcimer. What the hell is a hammered dulcimer? It’s a smaller version of a cimbalom. Got it?
