L̶i̶n̶c̶o̶l̶n̶ ̶C̶h̶u̶g̶g̶

Ik this is gunna sound kind of cringe but this video actually changed my life. I saw my favorite minecraft youtuber, play a song called "ride the lightning" and i watched the whole video, and ended it with a smile. I got my little kindle fire and searched it up. Metallica. I had been listening to this "rap" just to sound "cool" to all my classmates. I stoppes that bc it sucked and i really didnt like rap. I was listening to Metallica on a daily basis. That was when i was 12 now im 14. Thanks dude!! Like i cant belive just a guitar cover would help cure my depression back then!! I fricken love hard rock and metal now!!

X going wild because neighbors can't come to complain due to quarantine.

Peeps 1007

Nala Adicandra

When are you gonna do a face reveal, X?? It's been years..

Mali Redikul

Don't trust him he is not the real xisuma


Pos show face

Nevara the Raven

Does Xisuma lift weights while filming or something? He's wayyy to buff for a full time minecraft youtuber

QuabbL 6

John Davey Caracut

Please do a Enter Sandman Or Master of puppet cover DX.

The loth cat

I was not expecting this of mild mannered xisuma.




Its exactly what i imagined xisuma would look like except for the face

Benjamin Fox

Can I just say that X is built way differently then he sounds

Jimmy Z

When learning guitar, this was the song and band that made me want to learn. Twenty years later my son chose to learn guitar because of the same song and same band. And we both are Minecraft addicts. Go figure. X is a good role model for all that he does and is.


stronk man

Mubeen Dewan

This guy is a Minecraft YouTuber?

Reginald Danshita

I didn’t know X played instruments


Everybody is commenting on his looks, and it's just sad how they let the amazing guitar playing go unnoticed.

Inventory Overlord



wait wtf he is so ripped

Mark Bronsema

His face is probably even better looking than his ripped body.

Eleanor Brant

I love this! I’m less of a heavy metal fan (that said I’ve been to a Rolling Stones concert and was supposed to see guns n roses this summer) but my favourite band and the only music I really listen to is by the Foo Fighters! If you were to ever record another video like this, a foo fighters song would be fantastic! Great guitar <3

Sam Perkins

Now we know he's Wight and average height and skinny
3 steps closer to finding his identity

Brendan Tunkel

You should get a doom guy mask instead

Salty Penis

Never knew that you play guitar

Logan Hillard

Nathan Rocillo

My feed is full of Metallica and thrash metal guitar covers but I didn’t expect that a Minecraft YouTuber would do one

Macenth Divij K

I want to hear Xisuma play Time by Pink Floyd on his guitar. Petition. Like if you agree.

Jintastic Shoulders

Not gonna lie, I saw this and was confusion. X? Metallica? Was not expecting that XD

taco sandwich

for anyone confused about the contrast between his calm personality and his music taste, using metal as an outlet to get frustration out is really therapeutic. stuffing emotions down generally doesn't solve them, so why not embrace them and let them run their course through a song rather than in life.


You got some muskels

Ether Arch

X: I make Minecraft videos for kids on YouTube! : D ... also X: Metal AF.

Ronald Noah Cruzeiro Steenblik

wow he has great muscles


Who else noticed that Xisuma is pretty buff?

Ian Byrne

At the start he was like 1/32 note off the track and I was really annoyed by it, but it’s a good cover overall


Can you do a cover of Foreplay/Longtime by Boston?

Domenic Fatone

I have had this song stuck in my head all day

The Bruhther

AsteroidAnt64 minecraft

Estas mamadisimo que pdp

Ryan S

Xisuma be shredded tho. Ever thought of making a workout channel? I'd subscribe

ITS Purge



Xisuma is the absolute last person i’d expect to be playing games like doom eternal, and listening to metallica. He seems too innocent


Hey X, great job. I want to say that you have singlehandedly introduced me to metal and electric guitar and I love it to bits! I recently started learning to play the electric guitar myself as well and it is going alright, even though I still have finetune my rhythm on quarter, triplets, 8ths and such and my technique. I'm also still figuring out how to set everything up for songs like these. I have set my next milestone to play some metallica songs, and I was wondering where you got these tablatures from. Would appreciate if anyone could tell me!


Xisumas Buff Or is he..?

Yael Fierro

I mean, if his face is as good as his body and guitar skills, oh boy, are we in trouble

Joe The Juggalo

Haha! Was trying to find your music channel xisuma and I came across this old video. Didn't know this video exist until now.
Awesone take on the song. Cheers brother from the US.

Acinraz _

Xisuma on his main channel:
chill and playing minecraft
Xisuma on xisumatvo:
intense crazy guitar playing

Jeysumavoid - officialjeyden

And I’m back again, this song and Escape remind me heavily of these covers by Xisuma!! \m/

Matthew Tolliver

At the rate of what Xisuma looks like he could just as well be the Doom guy.... Wait... THE SIMILARITIES ARE ALIGNING!! X IS TYE DOOM GUY!!,


no way this is the same guy


This hits hard

Athena Williams

Breh the Minecraft dude is a ripped rocker.

mr. smooth7121

Jeff Rahmon

I refuse to believe this is the same person on the xisumavoid channel




Pls do more


Still has masks for a face. He really is still taking them off.

Tallulah Mars

I has no idea X had these vids. This is freaking sick!

Paul Orion

Seanybearscouts -Sean

Mar Hf

David Bakke

X in 2018: Oh yeah! I am a metalhead! Look at me, shredding Metallica!
X some time later: "X gonna give it to ya! Yeah, I give it to ya! X gonna give it to ya, whaaat... "
