Metallica Make Surprising Foo Fighters Alcohol Revelation


Foo Fighters and Tool will headline the Epicenter festival on May 10-12 at the newly created Rockingham Festival Grounds in Richmond County, NC. Korn, Rob Zombie, Judas Priest, Bring Me The Horizon, The Cult, 311, Evanescence, Bush, and Live will also perform, and Metallica have announced that they will contribute to the festival with their new alcohol product.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents is proud to announce a collaboration with Metallica’s Blackened Whiskey and Enter Night Pilsner. Blackened, a super-premium American whiskey blend, crafted by the late Master Distiller Dave Pickerell and finished in the earth shattering music of Metallica, and Enter Night Pilsner, a collaboration with the rockstars of craft brewing Stone Brewing Company, will come together under one roof to offer guests a one-of-kind musical festival experience. The massive Boilermaker pop-up will feature a Blackened & Enter Night Boilermaker, as well as craft cocktails and ice-cold Enter Night Pilsner. This exciting collaboration marks the latest in a long line of amplified guest experiences only available through Danny Wimmer Presents music festivals.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently shared a video in his Instagram story where he he discussed being featured in a book with many 90’s alternative rock icons, and he appeared to love Foo Fighters. Ulrich was kind to everybody named, saying he was a fan of them all, with no feuds appearing to be present.

Ulrich said, “Check this shit out people. Matt Everett, The First Time: Stories & Songs from Music Icons. How very fucking cool is that. Then right there on page 194, some very cool company, as you can see. Very fucking cool company.”

The book features alternative rock icons like Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, Hole singer Courtney Love, R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, and Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme. Other rock legends like The Who guitarist Pete Townshend, Peter Gabriel, Elton John, and Alice Cooper are also interviewed.
