Metallica have uploaded a series of YouTube videos showcasing Doodles, a mid-show act put on by guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo during recent WorldWired tour shows.

The videos, which were shot during the band’s recent performances in Scandinavia and Russia, feature the pair covering classic rock tunes from bands native to those concert locations. Examples include a rendition of Danish band D.A.D’s Sleeping My Day Away in Copenhagen, as well as a performance of Insener Garini Hüperboloid – by Estonian punk rock group Vennaskond’sin – in Tartu.

The stripped-back covers feature just bass and guitar, and the occasional vocals provided by Trujillo.
