Can't say I'm actually particularly familiar with the original. I love System, but I rarely ventured outside of their albums. Should rectify that mistake at some point. Cool cover, though.

You've reminded me of a couple of my favourite covers;


I absolutely love this Sabbath cover, though I'm sure a few people will get their knickers in a twist over it ;D


Great cover of a great track by Berlin.

The original track is on their first demo. It was never re-recorded. It's a cool weird tune. Daron sings it.

Anyway, System have done some cool covers, yeah. "Snowblind" and "The Metro" are excellent. I love how different "Snowblind" is compared to the original. That's how you do a cover!

Here's a cool cover Opeth did of Celtic Frost's "Circle of the Tyrants"!

I can't find a clip of it, but I was just listening to Iron Savior's S/T for the first time in a long while and there's a great cover of Nazareth's "This Flight Tonight" on there.

Never really dug Amon Amarth that much (although they're great fun live), but that's not a bad cover at all.

This is not a metal band, but my 17-year-old son has introduced me to CAKE. They are an interesting band and cover this song. I never liked this song in its original form, but this is pretty cool, and is one of my favorite tunes by them! They also cover "War Pigs" but I don't like it nearly as well. I'm a purist I guess.

Opeth also covers Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs" on the special edition of Watershed. It's pretty true to the original, but is a very nice cover.

Ah, I love Cake. That cover is a good one, but on the same album, Fashion Nugget, has even better a cover;



I never thought the 'War Pigs' cover clicked correctly either, honestly. I don't think it's a purist thing, I just don't think John McCrea's vocal delivery quite fits it.

That's a cool cover, I like that girl's voice even if it does sound a bit auto-tuned up. I might have to check out their other stuff, I've never heard the band before.

I don't know that she's auto-tuned. She's got a great voice. Beware of early albums by them, as they're not the same. They started out very young, doing piano/keyboard-driven pop kinda stuff with a Christian angle, but they got heavier as they got older.

I guess they have parent managers who were like show-moms, you know; seems like the whole state of PA hates them. Haha.

Either way, the One and Done EP is how I discovered them. Just a random $2 buy. It's a live EP and I thought it was pretty killer. They came out with a full-length last year or the year before that went over really well.

They're not hard rock, though. They mix in a lot of 90s stuff, too. Just a warning. But they've come a long way since the keytar.



lol!

Great Firehouse tune, though.

I don't know anything about that, sir. My buddy is a fan and sent me some links to their stuff, but it didn't do anything for me. I'm not a fan of female vocals, with very few exceptions. She's cute though.

Ditto. I'd like to add that I've never even heard of them.

That can't be a Testament cover. The playing is way too sloppy. It's probably from some all-star tribute album.

Pretty sure that 'Seek & Destroy' is Chuck Billy with Jake E. Lee. Don't know the other musicians, though.

That 'Seek & Destroy' cover can be found here...



Chuck Billy
Jake E Lee
Jimmy Bain
Anysley Dunbar

It's an ok tribute album, but after a few spins, it just makes you appreciate the originals that much more.

Ok thanks. I wasn't aware that it wasn't the whole of Testament. I usually play the vid in the background and surf the net.

That video is like 10 Testament videos mashed into one. Laughing
