Their single from Blood Mountain.
For anyone who doesn't know, Homme does backing vocals on their song Colony of Birchmen
I think maybe more like these instead
Makes sense now! No idea he did vocals for one of their tracks https://youtu.be/eebzVpqm7-s
Very much some "Give the Mule What He Wants" vibe.
Just give him the entirety of ...And Justice for All, that's all you need for getting someone into Metallica. Anything from 80s Metallica is great, but they outdid themselves with AJFA. There's even a bass-restored version called ...And Justice For Jason, it's like hearing the album for the first time all over again!
As far as Slipknot goes...why the three most mainstream songs? Give them the gritty, angry, violent shit that got people going nuts over them in the first place. Almost anything from self-titled and Iowa. While I love everything Slipknot have done, nothing from Vol. 3 onwards can match the raw energy that Slipknot displayed on those first two albums.
Also would like to add Colony of Birchmen to the list of Mastodon stuff, and Obfuscation to BTBAM.
And one more, for good measure: Henchmen Ride by Testament. Never fails to hype me up! 🤘
