There's a popular trend to do non-metal covers of well-known metal jams. They can range from pretty good to outright bizarre (Richard Cheese, anyone?). But Belarusian band Stary Olsa offer up this strangely satisfying medieval folk cover of Metallica's "One." Watch the live performance above.
The whole song is performed using traditional instruments. Kirk Hammett's famous guitar intro is played on a medieval flute -- the melody translates perfectly to this style of music. The lute is also a prominent instrument in the video, along with hand percussion and a marching bass drum.
Stary Olsa's rendition is an abridged version of the original, clocking in at just under four minutes. However, they still find the time to crank out the more thrashy bits, and they do it in sweet medieval style.
