What happens when some of the biggest names in metal come together for a collaboration? You get one hell of a performance.

As part of Metal Injection’s Slay At Home Festival series, longtime Jackson signature artist Phil Demmel and Jackson artist relations manager Mike Tempesta (Powerman 5000) joined Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet, Bleeding Through keyboardist Marta Demmel, The Cult drummer John Tempesta and Armored Saint bassist Joey Vera for a throttling cover of Michael Schenker Group’s “Assault Attack.”

Both Demmel and Tempesta tore through this number with their custom Jackson black and white King V axes.

Watch the action below.
