Wedding Band’s Bossa Nova Rendition of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ Goes Viral

Elektra Records

Nothing says Metallica quite like ‘Enter Sandman’ at a wedding reception, especially when the metal classic takes on a smooth bossa nova sound.

Guitarist Marcel Yammouni’s filmed his wedding band doing their rendition of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman,’ and posted the following: “Some of the shenanigans we get up to at weddings. I had to hit record on my phone.” And that he did.

What Yammouni didn’t realize is that the video is now viral with well over 400,000 views as of this posting. The popularity of the clip has even inspired the band to do a whole record of material.

A posting on the video’s Youtube page states, “We are so excited that this video has received a lot of attention that we are going to do an albums worth of material. Recording commences in mid Jan.”

Will this wedding band of metal heads turn out more jazzy, instrumental covers of Metallica tunes? Or will they take on other bands by offering a bossa nova version of Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ or Pantera’s ‘Walk,’ among others? We’ll just have to wait and see in 2013. In the meantime, if you haven’t seen the clip, check it out below. And if you have seen it, go ahead and watch it again.
