    The last thread i found searching this forum on this topic was from 2007. It might be time for a new cover song thread. Cover songs, the good ones, the bad ones, all of them.

    I`ll start with my favourite cover of all time.

    Mother Earth, father thunder by Bathory is a song i have wished somebody would make a decent cover by for a long time, due to the fact that the original one is not pleasant to play loud. Think i have found four covers of it so far, where this one is the best one of those in my oppinion. But still hoping for a better cover of this song.

    Must be the most covered black metal song of all time. Like its the Enter Sandman of black metal. Personally i tend to prefer covers where the cover stray from the usual path. Covers where the bands try a straight cover without putting a personal touch to it i tend to be more critical to the outcome. I think in Transilvanian Hunger`s case, Blodsrit got one of the better straight covers.

    Tried searching for recent threads. Didnt find it if so. Guess it depends on the title of the thread.

    Both of these covers are pretty amazing, but I prefer the Cathedral version.
