This video is a bit of an oldie but is too cool to not share with you all. Below you can watch a video of South Korean jazz singer Youn Sun Nah take on one of metal’s most famous tracks, Metallica‘s “Enter Sandman”. It’s simply her on vocals paired with an acoustic guitar (that pulls out some haunting licks). But what this woman can do with her voice is unbelievable. It’s also something right out of a horror film, her voice cracking much like the iconic sound from Ju-On and then reaching siren-like heights. Perhaps I’m swayed by the fact that she is from Korea, a country that puts out some stellar horror material but I also think I’m onto something here. Listen below and lend me your thoughts.
“Enter Sandman” comes off of Nah’s Same Girl album.
