NITRO Guitarist MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO Pays Tribute To METALLICA (Video)

Shred lord Michael Angelo Batio, who rose to fame in the '80s with Nitro, pays tribute to Metallica in a new video showcasing his DV Mark Multiamp. Songs featured include "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "Sanitarium", "Enter Sandman", and "Master Of Puppets".

Reactivated ‘80s rockers Nitro have released their first new song since 1992 with “It Won’t Die”. Alongside original members Jim Gillette (vocals) and Michael Angelo Batio (guitars), Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler and bassist Victor Wooten are also in the fold. Check out the track below.

Joining Team Nitro is multi-Grammy Award nominee, Kane Churko, who's songwriting, producing and engineering credentials are second-to-none. Churko has worked with Ozzy Osborne, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Hellyeah, Papa Roach and more.

In addition to producing the new Nitro album, Churko will also be contributing his songwriting talents.

"It's exciting to be part of Nitro's evolution and the opportunity to record a legendary vocalist such as Jim Gillette was not one I wanted to pass up. We've had a lot of fun working on new music together at The Hideout Recording Studio. I really think it's going to please old and new fans alike. With such a phenomenal lineup, it should be evident that Nitro is back and ready to compete with the best-of-the-best.", said Churko.

A release date for the new Nitro album, currently being recorded, is forthcoming.
