June 2 — Hard rock band Oceanhoarse has unveiled a cover of a Metallica classic for its latest single.
The band debuted its take of Metallica’s ‘The Four Horsemen‘ Thursday with the playfully re-titled ‘The Four Hoarsemen.’ The single is a standalone work and is not included in the band’s recently released sophomore album, Heads Will Roll. The album was released in February through Noble Demon.
While not included in the band’s latest album, guitarist Ben Varon said the cover was recorded during the album’s recording sessions.
“A little tip we took from Metallica is to start the recording session for a new album with a cover song,” Varon said. “It’s less stressful than trying to record one of the originals right away, and it’s a great and fun way to set the sound and get comfortable with the room. This song was recorded during the recording of our last album Heads Will Roll, and we think it turned out pretty cool! We hope Het & the guys like it!”
Oceanhoarse’s take on the Metallica classic, which is featured in Metallica’s 1983 album, Kill ‘Em All. The band’s take on the Metallica classic stays largely true to its source material while really amping up the original and giving it the group’s own hard rock touch, making it quite interesting.
