About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: June 5, 2009
  • Artist / Band: Harptallica

This experiment in melodic metal started in 2006. Ashley Toman arranged one Metallica song for the harp, paired up with fellow grad student and harpist Patricia Kline, and the rocking ensued. In 2009, Molly Marcuson took over for Kline, and the duo has continued to expand its repertoire with material by Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.
