Music last year Share Tweet Pin Share Blistered Earth—a Metallica tribute band from Spokane, Washington—had all of their equipment stolen after a exhibit final Saturday in Portland. Just after listing all the devices and equipment that was nabbed, the band’s story got the interest of the media. Then, they got some assistance from an sudden source—Metallica them selves. “James [Hetfield] & the relaxation of the men in Metallica (thanx men) have found in good shape to replace our machines,” the band wrote on Facebook. A representative for Metallica confirmed the news to Pitchfork. Shawn Murphy, a drummer in Blistered Earth, gave an job interview about the incident. “It’s fairly brilliant that they would do that,” he mentioned. “It is quite nicely documented that they experienced all of their equipment stolen way back in the working day, back when they didn’t have funds to replace their equipment, so they have very first hand awareness of how shitty this feels.” Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ?
