Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe performed on the ShipRocked cruise yesterday (January 26) alongside former Megadeth bassist David Ellefson.

This year's ShipRocked cruise kicked off on January 22 in Port Canaveral, Florida and will come to a close on January 28. Cruisers are travelling for six days and nights across to Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas, then onwards to Grand Turk in Turks & Caicos, before finishing at Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic, with their journey being soundtracked by a host of metal acts.

Blythe and Ellefson covered Metallica's One during a set by The Stowaways, a makeshift supergroup formed of an ever-changing roster of musicians from the rock and metal world, which changes year on year, while onboard the Carnival Magic. 

Performing alongside the pair for the Metallica cover were guitarist Andy Wood and drummer Benjamin Eller.

Taking to social media to capture the moment, Ellefson wrote: "Great time jamming @metallica 'One' featuring Randy Blythe on vocals with THE STOWAWAYS on @shiprocked Cruise today!".

Artists on this year's ShipRocked cruise include Falling In Reverse Parkway Drive, Motionless In White, Nova Twins, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Wargasm and more.
