Orion, an often underrated Metallica song, has long been one of my favorites by the group.  We have posted a few videos from this amazing duo, but we just can’t get enough.  While the concept of an acoustic band playing metal music is nigh on a cliche right now, and slapping a guitar is seen as an overused gimmick, there are some musicians out there who can pull these off beautifully (Rodrigo y Gabriela, Flametal and Tommy Emmanuel come to mind instantly).  Rodrigo y Gabriela perform an absolutely amazing cover of Orion, beginning with a lovely percussion piece played on the guitar, building up to a sublime interpretation of the piece, illustrating the role of classical music in metal composition, a strong understanding of theory, and amazing musicians.
