Here is a wild one – Metallica and Lars Ulrich‘s legendary dad Torben Ulrich are The Mars Volta followers and used to go to the band’s reveals. Based on The Mars Volta‘s Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala in an interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music 1, Metallica as soon as attended a Mars Volta present and requested they play “Inertiatic ESP” from the 2003 album De-Loused In The Comatorium… they usually did not.
“We met them in New Zealand,” mentioned Bixler-Zavala. “They got here to our present they usually have been like, are you going to play this music? We’re like, no, we do not play that anymore. Sorry. And he is there. I am like, God, we must always play it for him a minimum of.
He continued: “We did not play it. We have been very cussed about the place we have been. It was one thing from the primary data. We have been like, we’re right here now. We perceive folks actually love that, however we’re very egocentric like that. However it was cool to satisfy them. It was like, wow.”
Rodríguez-López then chimed in and mentioned he was as soon as at a Metallica rehearsal the place they coated “Inertiatic ESP,” the music that The Mars Volta would not play.
“Yeah. You understand how they rehearse or simply jam earlier than happening stage? They performed on the stadium in strolling distance from my home once I lived in Mexico. So, they performed proper on the, is that the little [spanish] I believe it was. Yeah. Sorry Guadalajara if I received that mistaken. They’re very specific about their… However so I walked up there, received it in and stuff they usually invited me again there after which I may simply see them whispering one thing. After which they performed ‘Inertiatic.’ Yeah. It was actually cool.”
“It was actually cool. I felt honored simply to be again there as a result of that is their personal time earlier than they go on stage. And the truth that they invited me to be of their area felt actually lovely. And all of us grew up with that. All of us grew up with that stuff.”
