Rodrigo y Gabriela shared their version of Megadeth’s “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due” to herald the release of their metal covers EP, Mettal, which is out today (January 17).
Mettal also includes classical guitar takes on Metallica’s “Battery” and Slayer’s “Seasons in the Abyss.” Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero’s affinity for metal is well documented and goes way back. The duo are famous for covering heavy metal songs, and metal has returned the favor. Members of Metalica and Megadeth appeared with Rod y Gab during the duo’s performance at The Hollywood Bowl in 2016.
