Beatallica album preview
Audio samples of all the tracks that are set to appear on BEATALLICA’s first official CD, “Sgt. Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band”, have been posted at Amazon.com.
“Sgt. Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band” is scheduled for release on July 10 via Oglio Records.
Comprised of members Jaymz Lennfield (vocals, guitar), Grg Hammettson (guitar), Kliff McBurtney (bass), and Ringo Larz (drums), BEATALLICA — the Milwaukee-based satirical mashup act whose hilarious schtick marries the songwriting prowess of THE BEATLES to the deep-throated rock growl of METALLICA — has been converting naysayers into believers for years by this point — having made fans throughout the world, including such renowned headbangers as DREAM THEATER’s Mike Portnoy and ANTHRAX’s Scott Ian.
BEATALLICA in 2005 received help from METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich in their dispute with the Sony Corporation over BEATALLICA’s “unlawful use” of the group’s compositions “without authorization or license.” The case has since been resolved, with BEATALLICA being allowed once again to operate their web site, Beatallica.org, and continue performing their patented blend of BEATLES tunes in a METALLICA style.
