They say that variety is the spice of life, but I doubt even those of you blessed with a Heston Blumenthal-like mindset would’ve thought of creating the tasty musical feast that is Marching Metal. The brainchild of NI charity organisation Beyond Skin and supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, this unusual collaboration saw two members from Protestant marching bands team up with a pair of metal musicians to perform a high octane version of Star of the County Down to mark the recent Make Music Day NI.

The video for the track, which was filmed in front of various Belfast landmarks and is available to view on You Tube, has now gone viral and regardless of whether you’re a fan of King Billy or King Diamond, music lovers from all walks of life have been enjoying this unlikely union.
