MEEK IS MURDER + Metallica

Earlier this year, Metallica's Kirk Hammett passed NYC trio Meek Is Murder some very nice words via mutual friend Jose Mangin of Sirius XM Liquid Metal.

Today is Kirk Hammett's birthday and, in celebration, Meek Is Murder has released its raw rendition of Metallica's 1988 banger, "Blackened." In true MIM form, the cover clocks in at under two minutes, while still paying homage to the original favorite. The song was recorded at Spaceman Sound in Brooklyn, NY, with Tom Tierney and Alex Mead-Fox.

Check out Meek Is Murder's cover of "Blackened," here.

Meek Is Murder's latest release, the Kirk Hammett-approved Onward EP, is available for download, here. 

Meek Is Murder is currently at work on its third album.
