a cappella metal !

"Five singers, one drummer. No guitars, no bass, no keyboards but nevertheless an unbelievable melodic metal experience." That's the description of van Canto, a German a cappella group that's done an amazing job of covering Metallica's classic "Battery" (from the Master of Puppets album, a.k.a. before the band met Bob Rock).

Not sure why these fine Germans thought they should sing the word "battery" instead of just humming the notes of the original's acoustic guitar intro, but once that's done, the heart of the song kicks in—and we mean, kicks.

Video is here.
