Damage Inc. is about to do some damage to Metallica’s songbook—but we mean that in a really good way. The world’s premier Metallica tribute band is set to rock the house on the upcoming episode of AXS TV’s "The World's Greatest Tribute Bands." The live one-hour concert will be broadcast from the world famous Whisky A Go-Go on the Sunset Strip. The show is hosted by Katie Daryl.
The Southern California-based band has been playing Metallica classics for over a decade, and they show no signs of fading to black anytime soon. According to the Damage Inc. website, the band has been in a regular rotation at the House of Blues since 2007 and even earned a mention in the Metallica fan club magazine. Named after Metallica’s 1986 Master of Puppets song of the same name, Damage Inc.’s music has been streamed more than a quarter million times. And it doesn’t hurt that lead singer Chris Knight is a dead ringer for Metallica frontman James Hetfield.
Damage Inc. previously played on the first season of AXS TV's "The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands" in 2013. Four years later, we’re glad they’re getting an encore.
You can see Damage Inc. on "The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands" Wednesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. ET on AXS TV.
