WATCH: Metallica's 'Sad But True' covered by 250 Russian musicians

Absolute Metal Madness

Here's one from the YouTube vault to get you over the line for the long weekend: back in September, over 250 Russian metalheads have convened in Moscow to perform a raucous cover of Metallica's 1991 classic 'Sad But True' to absolutely wild results.

Possibly inspired by the mighty Italian ensemble of one thousand muscians who covered the Foo Fighters 'Learn To Fly' back in 2015, Rocknmob took to the streets to perform Metallica's Black Album cut. 

While there's definitely room for 250 metalheads to absolutely botch a cover, the ensemble did a pretty stellar job, with the addition of female backing vocals working a treat within the song. Check it out below:
