“Master of Puppets” sung in different styles can make you lose your mind
We can guarantee that you have never heard the classic Metallica “Master of Puppets” before.
Anthony Vincent, YouTube musician and creator of the Ten Second Songs video series, is back with what he calls “Master of Puppets in 50 Styles”.
Effectively, that means he sings the 1986 Metallica title song in 50 different ways on a single play of the song, including in the disparate styles of David Bowie, James Brown, Culture Club, Daft Punk, Dir En Gray. , Dream Theater, Fugees, King Diamond, The Kinks, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Misfits, Pentatonix, Queen, Sabaton, Spiritbox, The Weeknd and more.

Vincent’s talent is undeniable – he can as well sing Tool style as he can transform Adele into 25 different genres. In February, Vincent did a synthwave cover of Alice in Chains.
But Vincent is not the only one to thank for this multiple cover of Metallica. It’s Joey Izzo in the accompanying video; Izzo also mixed and mastered the creation.
Metallica recently performed at the Aftershock Festival after releasing a remastered and expanded edition of their 1991 “Black Album”. In September, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said it was “far too early” to talk about a new album from Metallica.
Vincent has also been busy this year, sharing a Audioslave acoustic cover‘s “Like a stone”, a piano ballad version of “Would?” from Alice in Chains and a rendition of “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters, among others.
