Steve ‘n’ Seagulls Cover Metallica’s ‘Seek and Destroy’ Over Tea
Those Finnish lads Steve ‘n’ Seagulls are back to deliver yet another masterful bluegrass version of a metal classic — this time rocking out Metallica‘s “Seek and Destroy” while hovered around a tiny table filled with items for their daily tea.
Watch as the guys utilize a banjo, ukulele, guitar, stand-up bass, brushes and egg shakers to add a fresh spin to the Metallica classic. Not to mention, there’s a pretty swinging mid-song breakdown allowing Steve ‘n’ Seagulls to put their stamp on “Seek and Destroy.”
The group has made a name for themselves in recent months with countrified covers of metal classics like AC/DC‘s “You Shook Me All Night Long,” Iron Maiden‘s “The Trooper” and Dio‘s “Holy Diver,” and eventually those covers caught the ears of Spinefarm Records. The label will release the band’s latest effort, Farm Machine, on May 12.
Each of those songs, along with Metallica’s “Seek and Destroy” that you can hear above, are part of the new album. They also cover tracks from Guns N’ Roses, Pantera and Led Zeppelin among others on the upcoming Farm Machine disc. The album is currently available for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes and you can pick up physical releases as part of bundle options at this location.
