No doubt everyone agrees, Lars Ulrich got his own special drum style. This is one of the things that makes Metallica special. Well, Lars’s drumming style were used to Megadeth? This video can answer this question.

Youtuber drummer Josh Steppen hit the new video that showing what would Megadeth classic “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due” sound like if Lars was behind the drum kit.


You can watch below. Also here is Josh’s note:

“Ever since I’ve started doin’ these Lars vids, I’ve had requests for ‘Holy Lars’! I wanted to play this one like the Lars I grew up with. I gave it the ‘LIVE SHIT’ treatment.”

    Well it’s at least somewhat typical of Lars. Fills that make little to no sense in the context of the song, lot’s of bass drum triplets. Lars never swung his 8th notes on the bass drum back in the day. It worked for Metallica, but that was one dynamic of Megadeth I really enjoyed that is missing from this cover version.
