Metal giants Metallica this week released an expanded reissue of 1991’s Metallica along with a companion set called The Metallica Blacklist, a collection of 53 different covers of the 12 songs appearing on the so-called “Black Album.” And one of those covers was performed by none other than Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan.
Check out his moody take on “Nothing Else Matters” right here.
All profits from the sale of The Metallica Blacklist — available in 4CD, 7LP and digital formats — will be split between the band’s All Within My Hands Foundation and charities picked by each contributor.

I think that Dave Gahan has the hottest voice that I have ever heard! When I pass away. I want to be cremated and have my ashes pored on top of him!
I’m no DJ but can recommend a few Mode songs for the cremation:
2.) “It’s No Good”
3.) “ Strangelove”
Nice, but a little tedious. Not due to Dave’s interpretation, I guess I just never noticed how few lyrics there are.
Love it. I got married to Blue Dress (martin) but I agree to your sentiments
I remember 80s, when the metallists and the depechists were great enemies. Dave stopped this. Waiting James singing Engjoy the Silence. ;)
Two of my favorite acts that I have seen live…yes, let’s get a metal version of “In Your Room”
