Here's A Beautiful Orchestral Rendition Of METALLICA's 1988 Classic "One"
There are tons of orchestral reimaginings of metal songs floating around out there, and frankly a lot of them aren't very interesting. Sure, transcribing all the parts for various orchestral instruments and calling it a day counts, but it's just boring. Little Kruta, an ensemble led by Kristine Kruta, has done the opposite of making a boring orchestral cover of a metal song.
Little Kruta has covered Metallica's classic track "One" and, with the accompaniment of vocalist Alita Moses, makes it really beautiful. Even better, Little Kruta will release their album Justice on October 25, which is a front-to-back cover of Metallica's 1988 album … And Justice For All. We're assuming there will be bass on this one.

What would happen if you took And Justice for All, the iconic 1988 album from Thrash Metal icons, Metallica, and reimagined it for a Classical orchestra? Add to that four emerging Jazz and Soul vocalists. You're left with one of the most intriguing interpretations of Rock material ever recorded. Brought to you by Little Kruta, featuring a band comprised entirely of women, "One" is the first single from Little Kruta's upcoming new album, Justice, due October 25th, which will forever change the way you perceive Metallica, Classical Music, and what an audiophile recording can be.
On "One", Little Kruta, consisting of Kristine Kruta (Musical Director & Cello), Maria Im (Concert Mistress & Violin), Katie Jacoby (Violin & Soloist), Chiara Fasi (Violin), Molly Fletcher(Violin), Laura Sacks (viola), Tia Allen (viola), Adi Meyerson (upright bass), and Rosie Slater (percussion), are joined with sensational vocalist Alita Moses for a reinterpretation of the 1988 hit song that examines a soldier's return home from war without his arms, legs, sight, or ability to move or to speak.
Recorded in a single day in a decomissioned Brooklyn church, the Pierre Piscitelli arrangements of the beloved thrash melodies are completely transformed into moving pieces that will speak to fans of all genres on the forthcoming album. "One" is but the first glimpse into this fascinating blend of musical styles.
Little Kruta has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (Aminé, Metro Boomin and Gunna), Late Night with Seth Meyers (K.Flay), Saturday Night Live! (Shawn Mendes), at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center (Ruff Ryders), and more. Little Kruta has joined artists including Kaki King, The Wonder Years, and Vérité both on-stage and in-studio. Comprised of master musicians who are just as comfortable in the booth as they are on stage, the foundation of this orchestra is built on a true love of playing, and led by cellist Kristine Kruta.
The album was recorded in stunning high definition fashion using our new recording methodology which pairs a stereo ribbon microphone capturing crystal clear vocal performance and the immaculate acoustics of the church in which the album was recorded. This new recording style will leave you feeling like the band is right in front of you while still creating a timeless presence that will have you coming back for years to come.
