Badass day in the heavy metal world.
Tom Gabriel Fischer has slammed METALLICA for performing a cover version of CELTIC FROST‘s “The Usurper”.
He went on to say they butchered it, and it was humiliating.
In a brand new interview with Rolling Stone, Fischer stated about METALLICA‘s versions of his songs:
“They butchered it, and it was humiliating. Why don’t they leave their millionaire fingers off it? They’ve long lost the ability to play true metal in my opinion. Maybe I should go on stage and do a really miserable version of [METALLICA‘s] ‘Hit The Lights’ with, like, 200 mistakes to set the balance.”
Fischer saved most of his ire for James Hetfield and the METALLICA frontman’s interest in hunting.
“This is completely personal, and I know probably the majority of your readers will not share this feeling, but even if they had done a fantastic job, I could puke all over it because I don’t support people who go hunting bears for a hobby,” Tom said.
“I cannot respect a person like that, even if it’s a genius musician.”
