Since the announcement that Lou Reed and Metallica were doing a collaboration album, people have been skeptical at best. Now that there are samples out of what the album will sound like, fans are not exactly please for the most part. So, some clever individual decided to put together a Lou Reed-less version of The View, leaving only the Metallica parts intact. It’s worth checking out and getting a good chuckle or two. Enjoy after the jump!
Well, apparently the 30-second clip of Lou Reed/Metallica‘s The View wasn’t enough for you listeners out there. So, the guys have decided to put out a 90-second preview which, in my opinion, doesn’t add one single thing to the 30-second clip. Honestly, nothing new has been added except for a few lines and the music being a little big longer. That is it.
After a few months of speculation, we are finally getting a chance to hear what the Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration sounds like in the form of a snippet. After the jump, you can hear a 30-second (or so) snippet of The View. The teaser starts out with wide open guitars and drums underneath Reed’s trademark vocals. Towards the end of the snippet, it switches over to James Hetfield’s singing while the music picks up pace. It’s weird, it’s heavy and it’s about what I was expecting.
