Heres a quick cover i did of Metallicas "Blitzkrieg" cover. Im trying to capture the Old School feel that they had on the "Justice" Album, Let me know what you think. I did some changes to the EQ and added some more drum fills.

Thanks man, The amps i used are mesa boogie mark lll for distortion and an Impulse a friend of mine created for the EQ to get the exact tone. Using a Fendar Jazz Bass, And drums are Samples stripped from the drum tracks.

Great cover, everything sounded fantastic. This seriously sounded like it could have been the instrumentals taken right from the master, so you had amazing tone. I have no negatives from this, great job and thanks for the critique!

Right on man, this sounds sonically really close to the originals. I did notice you changed the drum parts from the originals such as at 0:28. not that it sounds bad but why did you make that decision? Seems to me you were trying to get as close as possible? Maybe your goal was just to get it SOUNDING as close sonically while still adding a bit of your own taste into it? Overall fantastic job.

Thanks! You got the right idea, I wanted to make it have a different feel instead of copying it completely to the core. The song was originally recorded in 1983 and i wanted it to sound like it was from the Metallica era from 1988. The drumming from the album "And Justice For All" sort of has that drumming pattern and i tried to incorporate that same feel to the songs.

But seriously, The mix sounds great. Everything is panned to that prefect spot, and it has that metallica rattle your chest. The dept is great. You added an overdub guitar that adds some great character. Its like rating a fine IPA, thanks for posting such a nice sounding mix.

This is how metallica would have recorded it today! even if the feel is from AJFA- great sound man.
The solo bit is fantastic! I've listened also to the All Nightmare Long cover, is it yours as well, right? another very good piece
