Today, we continue with heavy metal cover songs, specifically acoustic versions of Slayer tunes.
Athens, GA guitarist Erik Hinds, who now goes by the name Killick, plays this badass thing called the H'arpeggione (picture after the jump), built for him in 1999 by master instrument designer and builder Fred Carlson. I've seen (and heard, of course) him play it a number of times, and it's really something to behold.
In 2005, Erik decided to record his own version of Slayer's classic Reign in Blood album, on solo H'arpeggione. Today's track is the leadoff track,
Angel of Death. Please, commence headbanging.
