This is a video of Algar the Bard performing a medieval bardcore cover of Metallica’s 1988 banger ‘One’. 1988? Good lord I feel old, and I’m not even the undead warlock I’m always pretended to be. You know, I was just listening to Algar’s version and reading the lyrics, “Darkness imprisoning me; All that I see, absolute horror,” and it came to me — it’s about being locked away in a castle dungeon! A perfect fit for a bardcore cover. “Yeah that’s no what it’s about.” Is it about Napster?!
