FISTER Streams Ugly, Sludgy Cover Of METALLICA's "For Whom The Bell Tolls"
Fister will release their new covers album Decade Of Depression on September 27. The record showcases Fister paying filth, sludgy homage to bands like Slayer, Darkthrone, Danzig, Hellhammer, and of course Metallica. The band is streaming their disgusting cover of Metallica's "For Whom The Bell Tolls", which Fister's own Marcus Newstead tells BraveWords says was a tough choice.
“Choosing a song from a band as deeply influential and prolific as Metallica made us really try and pick something that represented all the parts of the band that made them truly amazing. With that in mind, 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' was a standout for us as it showcased what the band did best in a concise package early on in their career. It gets to the point and in a way has a very cyclical and repetitive structure which appeals to our comfort zone musically. The riffs are iconic so we tried to keep that attitude intact while giving it a new angle.”
