    Curious to everyone's opinion on this one. I know cover albums arent usually highly regarded but some good ones do exist.

    I chose not to include multi-band compilations because there's basically just too fucking many. I also left "none" off of the poll because you guys are... well... you guys.

    If I missed your choice please do post it.

    Tbh I've hardly heard anything on this list, or any other single-band album. The closest thing I can think of is probably disc two on Death is Glory...Now! With Reverend Bizarre. But I mean, it is mostly a comp with older covers, guess it doesn't count? :)

    I'm aware of the Rev Bizarre comp. I own Death is Glory Now... but it's part of a 2 disc compilation of rare tracks so I didnt include it. I at least think all these releases were released as stand alones.

    TBH I'm not even sure if it is my favorite. Revbiz is best when they make doom covers of things like Dunkelheit, Dark Sorceress and The Gate of Nanna. Death is Glory Now has too many covers of doom/heavy metal songs that they do pretty standard. Not sure why I ever would put on the their cover of Dark World, Deciever or Broken Vows instead of the originals.

    Everytime I hear Reverend Bizarre's version of Deceiver I think "why didn't they record the whole thing?" Agreed with Vilden that their black metal covers are the best.

    Solstice's cover of "Gloves of Metal" blows my bollocks off every time.

    Their covers of the pop songs are more enjoyable than the metal covers.

    Anal Cunt should have recorded an album of nothing but covers, but not include the tracklisting and instead made cunts try to guess what the fuck is what.

    That Anal Cunt cover is great though. Especially the hilarious falsettos.

    "that moment when you see everyone bitching about Yngwie and Jeff butchering Gates of Babylon but it turns out being the best cover on the album"

    Well, that and Blind Guardian's cover of Don't Talk to Strangers.
