Yesyou have a lot of accounts to render, stranger things. After the show breathed new life into classic Metallica and Kate Bush songs with their memorable use in season four, a YouTuber has now combined them to surprisingly good effect.

It is the last marvelous work of Anthony Vincent, who Dull tone has covered in the past: He previously injected some heavy metal attitude into the holiday season last year when he performed “Last Christmas” from Wham! in the style of German metal titans Rammstein. Another recent highlight saw him cover Eminem’s classic “Lose Yourself” in Linkin Park style.

Now he performed Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” in Metallica style (specifically in the style of the band’s “Master of Puppets”).

Vincent was joined by Trivium and Ibaraki musician Matt Heafy and fellow YouTuber Steve Terreberry for the guitar cover, all three turning the ethereal pop of the original into a raucous metal banger.

Heafy, meanwhile, made headlines earlier this month after praising his collaboration with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way for breaking the “elitist mindset” of black metal. The musician buddies reunited for ‘Rōnin’, a track by Rashomonthe debut album from Heafy’s new black metal project, Ibaraki.

“I knew Gerard was going to blow people away…it’s the concept of the guy from Trivium and the guy from My Chemical Romance doing a black metal track together. It would break the elitist mindset of what black metal can be,” he said.

When they worked together, Heafy was suitably impressed with Way’s ability. “I was talking to him about the things I thought I should do and he was like, ‘No, that’s not the point of black metal, it’s to break the rules and the attitude!’ You don’t have to sound like this or that or burn down churches… it’s about writing what you think is right and making music with your soul.

“I learned so much from him, especially regarding this record. Gérard and I felt like strangers watching this genre (with admiration for) the torchbearers of the genre.
