Says Ollie about the clip: “Coinciding with the end of my first year on youtube, this one took a while but here’s a full version of ‘Enter Sandman’, the first one in my series of tributes to all the bands I loved from the ’80s and ’90s.
“I was scratching my head thinking of the most random way to start the video, and as I was cutting down firewood for drying it, [I] thought… perfect !! 🙂 True story!”
“Enter Sandman” was featured as the opening track and lead single from METALLICA’s eponymous 1991 album. The song was produced by Bob Rock, and the music was written by Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich, and James Hetfield. Vocalist and guitarist Hetfield wrote the lyrics, which deal with the simplest concept of a child’s nightmares.
