Metallica star in Pokemon spoof

Metallica and pokemon

Metallica are the subject of a spoof video that appears to show them performing the Pokemon theme.

James Hetfield and co have been edited to match the Redeemers’ version of the song by YouTuber Golpe Baixo, who was inspired by the Pokemon GO explosion.

It follows King 810 being given a similar treatment earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Metallica have revealed details of a collector’s edition of Back To The Front, the book about 1986 album Master Of Puppets. The fan-powered title is published on September 13, with the special edition becoming available on August 30.

The band’s long-awaited 10th album is expected in the coming months.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
