Danish three-piece Baby In Vain dropped a striking cover of Metallica’s "For Whom The Bell Tolls," which is premiering exclusively on Billboard.

"We wanted to do a cover to challenge ourselves, and since Lars Ulrich, the lost son/drummer of Denmark, showed up at our record release show in August, of course it had to be of a Metallica song,” the band says of the cover, which features their dreamy take on the iconic -- and heavy -- Metallica riff.

“We listened to one great song after another and it wasn't an easy decision to make. In the end we decided on ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ because we thought it had a sweet riff and melody that we could do something exciting with. Bene [Pierleoni] came up with the beat and we built it around that."

The band just released their debut album More Nothing in 2017 and are gearing up for a 2018 tour. Check out the new song and their upcoming tour dates below.
