Hey, I like Metallica as much as the next guy, but jeese, I'm getting sick of all these contests.....I mean, what's the point?
Is there really any incentive prize or honor for the winner? Does the song get stickied? nah.

blink 182, green day, RHCP......I told myself, it's just a matter of time before Metallica gets one, and speak of the devil.....

when's it gonna stop?!?!?!

Maybe somebody can design an avatar? I could always do that if needed. Oh yeah, I can also make the drums tracks if anybody needs them, PM me.

If they really need drum tracks, just goto Guitarbt.com. They have all the Metallica drum tracks.

I have a Metallica - Fade to Black cover done, but I really feel no need to enter a contest, and I won't.

But, who ever does join this, I will be watching (and listening of course).

In referral to the comment above:

In the past contests were sanctioned by the moderators, thus giving the winner a 'prize' of sorts, may it be modship for a week or thier song stickied.

It is too bad that they do not do that anymore, how times are changing....

seriously guys if you think the ideas crap, dont bothering coming in and telling everyone, why waste your own time?

Im in, although, i cannot play many metallicas songs, from start to finish because of the solos are too difficult for learner me, so my choice for songs is pretty small, but ill choose nothing else matters
#12
By full song, do you mean Vox too? Cuz if not, I already have one recorded I could post. If it needs vox, I might or might not be in cuz of time issues...
If I had $1, for everytime I had $1, I'd be twice as broke as I am now...

You could do Hero of the Day, or any of their new songs for that matter...

Considering my friend has my distortion petal, I guess I'll just judge.

Sweet \m/

Metallica's an awesome band with a huge catalogue, so this should be fun. I think I might want to try something different - like an acoustic Metallica cover or something =)

I can't decide which song I want now, but I'll let you know when I do...

Actually, now that I think about it, I might even want to do a piano cover. I've always wanted to learn MoP on the piano, and so far all I've learned is the intro (I'm an extreme piano noob ). Don't know though...

BTW how about, from now on, there will only be one cover contest at a time, preferably something regular like two per month. The RHCP Cover Contest hasn't even ended yet, so having two cover contests at the same time could drastically diminish the participation in either of the contests. How about an agreement - no more cover contests until the Metallica one ends?

I really don't understand what the point of covering a song and trying to make it as close to the original as possible is.. seriously :/

You aren't going to be able to outdue Metallica, so you should just try and make your own version of the song.. If the contest is judged on originality and overall skill, then i'll enter. I'd like to be able to add vocals as well.

I'll do Seek and Destroy with my band. No bass or drums though, unless I get a drum and a bass track. 2 man band At least it will sound like the song, not just the bass or drums for it.

I'll do Ride The Lightning, providing I can find a backing track.


Yeah, if you do, let me know, I need one too.

Ok, well it looks like xemosucksx hasn't updated this in a while, but it'd help if you guys put in the title of your threads something along the lines of "(Metallica Cover Contest)" or something like that.

You can honestly do whatever you want, as long as it sounds remotely close to the original. Skill level will be taken into consideration. If you haven't been playing long that will also be taken into consideration. Just don't lie

Seek and Destroy!


We all have no lives!


just kidding, I have a life.


Do the solos have to be exact? If not I think just one bend will do for the solo.

#38
Wow, im really sorry guys, my grandmother died over the weekend. Umm So rules yea..


It has to be the full song, if you cant play the solo its cool skip it or play the rhythm section.

There doesnt have to be vocals, and it can be full band or you and your guitar, up to you.

There are only two judges so far. 'ibaRGnez321' and 'nirvana_freak01'. I need one more person.

These covers have been pushed back to June 20th by Midnight EST.

Please make a new thread with your cover like this in the title 'BAND - SONG NAME - METALLICA COVER CONTEST ENTRY'

if there is anything I missed please let me know.

Oh yeah, you can cover the song however you want, dont feel like you have to stick close to the original. Do an acoustic arrangement of Master of Puppets or something. Again, up to you.
