You can't spell "metal" without Metallica. For over twenty years, they've set the platinum standard for high-velocity ferocity, with their chainsaw guitars, machine gun drumming, and in-your-face tales of society's outcasts. Brilliantly assured musicians, Metallica has forced critics and fans to accept and finally to love their brand of hard-thrash rock. Their songs have become classics driven by riffs that stick to the insides of our skulls, long after we've pressed the eject button in a spasm of metal-ized satisfaction.
From out of the metal storm rides Iron Horse, the Alabama bluegrass band with the passion to match Metallica song for song. Fade to Bluegrass Volume 2 is a hand-picked collection of Metallica hits, restrung and refined into beautiful acoustic jams. Reeling fiddles, blazing banjos and the sweetest harmonies prove that bluegrass and metal have more in common than meets the ear–they're both on a mission to connect fans to the music that moves them.
