Kill The Lights Release Blistering Cover of Metallica Classic “Battery”

Following their riotous cover of Testament’s ‘Into The Pit’, Kill The Lights have released a ferocious version of Metallica hit “Battery”.



Featuring ex-members of Bullet For My Valentine and Still Remains amongst their ranks, internationally-flavoured metallers Kill The Lights have shared their new, blistering cover of the classic Metallica classic, “Battery”, following on from the success of their previous cover of Testament‘s “In The Pit”.

Drummer Moose Thomas explains, “We were talking about doing another “Quarantine Cover” after we had so much fun covering “Into The Pit” by Testament, and it was obvious that we had to try and top that. In my mind I’ve always wanted to cover anything off the amazingly good Master Of Puppets, and it came down to a choice between “Disposable Heroes” or “Battery”. We chose the latter just because we all agreed that it would be a good challenge to hopefully do justice to. And of course, we’re massive Metallica fans (who isn’t?) and we had a fun time tracking it!”

Kill The Lights remain hopeful to proceed with their ten, previously announced, headline UK shows in March 2021. Special guests will be Hopeless Records-signed, Newcastle crew GroundCulture.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
