METALLICA's 'Blackened' Gets Piano Treatment By Former BRAND NEW SIN Singer JOE ALTIER

Former BRAND NEW SIN singer Joe Altier, who now has a solo project called JUST JOE, has released a piano cover of METALLICA's "Blackened". Check it out using the SoundCloud widget below.

Altier also fronts the hard rock band ELEPHANT MOUNTAIN with former BRAND NEW SIN guitarist Slider. They released their sophomore album, "Birth Of A Conspiracy" in December.

During downtime with BRAND NEW SIN, Joe took up his piano and played clubs under the moniker BRAND NEW JOE. When he split from BRAND NEW SIN, Joe developed a repertoire of more than 2500 cover songs, ranging from Frank Sinatra to METALLICA and everything imaginable in between and has played venues up and down the East Coast as JUST JOE.

Joe has released four CDs of original material: "Just Joe Solo EP" (December 2011), "My Demons, My Burden, My Life" (May 2012), "Got Joe?" (December 2012) and "So The Story Goes…" (2013).
