The performance was in celebration of the veteran metal band, who earned Sweden’s coveted Polaris Music Prize moments before. After the band’s acceptance, Copia and company played the cover to Metallica and the rest of the awards attendees.

Definitely not intimidating at all, but we have to sayit was pretty epic.

The international Polaris award was founded in 1989 and “rewards musicians annually for significant achievements in music and/or musical activity, or for achievements which are found to be of great potential importance for music or musical activity,” explains the PRP.

“Along with the award comes a prize of 1 million Swedish krona ($125,000 USD,) which the band have pledged to put to good use via their own charity, the All Within My Hands Foundation.”
