LISTEN: Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich shows the love to Dublin band Otherkin

The Metallica drummer clearly knows a good thing when he hears it.

Lars Ulrich, Metallica's charismatic drummer, has sung the praises of Dublin band Otherkin on his podcast 'It's Electric' for Apple Music's Beats 1 station.

"We have a duty to show off insane riffs when they show up... (sings along)... come on, can we all have a group bang?" he told his hosts. "We're just spazzing out over Otherkin from Dublin, Ireland."

What follows is something we think is an Irish accent from Ulrich's English co-host, but if you can get past the casual stereotyping you'll hear a lot of praise for the Dublin group.

"I'm fuckin' inspired," added Ulrich as he played 'Yeah, I Know' from the band's The New Vice EP.

"It's so cool that there's so much cool stuff happening all over the world."
