RODRIGO Y GABRIELA's Cover Of METALLICA's 'The Struggle Within': Making-Of Video

Acclaimed guitar virtuosos RODRIGO Y GABRIELA have shared behind-the-scenes video footage from the making of their cover of METALLICA‘s “The Struggle Within”. The track was included on METALLICA‘s “The Metallica Blacklist” charity covers compilation, featuring 53 artists covering the 12 songs from “The Black Album.” All proceeds from the release benefit a charity of each artist’s choice and METALLICA‘s All Within My Hands foundation.

“The Metallica Blacklist” offers up new dimensions of the record whose gravitational pull first drew the mainstream to METALLICA — and provides new insights into the universal and timeless appeal that kept it there: the boundary-smashing influence these 12 songs have had on fans and musicians of all stripes. “The Metallica Blacklist”‘s tracks find singer songwriters, country artists, electronic and hip-hop artists sharing their love of these songs alongside punk rockers, indie darlings, icons of rock, metal, world music and many, many more… and for 50+ good causes.

“The Metallica Blacklist” is a fitting and limitless homage, one that features bands who’ve shared stages with METALLICA alongside artists who are younger than the original album. It’s a truly staggering, at times mystifying assemblage of musicians, dozens of whom have little to nothing in common other than the shared passion for the music that’s united them for this album: 1 Album. 12 Songs. 53 Artists. Unlimited Possibilities.

“The Metallica Blacklist” is available in formats including digital, four-CD and a limited-edition seven-LP vinyl pressing.

All Within My Hands was founded by the band in 2017 as a way for the entire METALLICA family to give back to communities that have supported the band by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.
