Episode 124 – Cover Special Vol. II

Saturday, September 5, 2009 Category: Specials Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

MetalCast Episode 124Polina, who’s a big fan of cover songs, desperately wanted us to make another Special where songs from (mainly) Pop, but also other Metal bands, are played by Metal bands. Considering it was Polina’s idea, why not fully grant that wish by letting her tell you all about it? When Metal bands play Pop songs (in a Metal jacket) the result is normally quite good and in some cases better than the original. Rest assured, the playlist also features Metal songs. So sit back, and enjoy material originally by Queen, Simon & Garfunkel, Alice Cooper, Skepticism, Radiohead and more.

    Great work guys,
    And yes, Polina, I even enjoyed the Michael Jackson cover. After all, if Children of Bodom can cover Britney Spears, then nothing is sacred. I think its amazing now many 80s songs have been covered by metal bands recently – Depeche mode, chris isaak, ultravox, abba, even Limahl and Neverending Story on the last Dragonland album (or the one before, I can’t remember – Japanese bonus on Holy War that’s it). I guess lots of metalheads are frustrated 80s pop addicts with long hair. AARgh!!!!!

    I really liked the theme and music for this episode but the compression artifacts really detracted from it… constant blips and distortions throughout 🙁
