VOIVOD Guitarist Performs 'Symphonic' Versions Of METALLICA Classics (Video)

Former MARTYR and current VOIVOD guitarist Daniel Mongrain was invited to perform a 15-song set of METALLICA classics with the Academis Les Estacades symphonic orchestra from his hometown of Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada under the direction of Sebastien Lepine (SLP) and longtime friends Martin Carbonneau (guitar), Bob St-Laurent (vocals), Rock Laroche (bass) and Simon Lanoglois (drums). The setlist was based on the METALLICA "S&M" album but also featured other tracks which were specially arranged by Pierre Peterson for the occasion.
