M? Drum
Backwards Metallica Cover

They say if you play Metallica backwards, well, nothing will happen; that myth is meant for Led Zeppelin. But what happens if you literally play Metallica backwards, then reverse it again? Stay with us on this.

YouTube-based musician Rob Scallon released his own cover of the metal band's signature hit "Enter Sandman" with the weirdest experimental twist: he plays it completely backwards. Recording every bar, hook and note in reverse order is already enough of a merit, but then he goes and reverses the recording, so that it's actually playing in the right order (lost yet?). The end result is a super-trippy, downright unsettling version of the original song.

If you're well and truly confused, I don't blame you. You've just got to watch the mind-bending awesomeness below (Wait until the vocals kick in, it sounds like an alien trying to get a grasp on English).
