    Is there any song you've heard that you think Dark Tranquillity would do better? Which song and why do you think so?

    I can't come up with anything myself, but this thread will probably be full of spam/die until tomorrow anyway. :D

    i think - and i suggested so to them recently - that they would do great cover versions of old testament songs, particularly disciples of the watch, trial by fire or envy life.

    Well, Bringer of torture is another old thrash hit and they did that one really good, so I think you've got a point, although I haven't heard those specific songs.

    They should make HAMMER SMASHED FACE by Cannibal Corpse really melodic. That'd be cool.

    On a more serious note Id love them to inject their power into "the perfumed garden" by "Omnium Gatherum". I think OG's version is kinda weak and to hear DT play that would be mind shattering (not a likely or a good choice though)!

    I think they did good work with "22, Acacia Avenue" from Iron Maiden, it's a great cover-song! But I would be interested in anything with swedish lyrics, that would be nice. But I can't tell any band or song that would fit...

    dream theater - the ytse jam :D (this is a stupid joke no one will get :zzz: )

    seriously, any thrash metal song from the 80's could come out pretty well.

    I think it would be cool if they covered Dog Faced Gods by Testament, or maybe an Alice in Chains song, like Nutshell or smth.

    They could take a stab at a Sanctuary song. Battle Angels, Die For My Sins, or Future Tense.

    @Nick: I'd say either Down In a Hole, Angry Chair, or Would. Any of those'd be cool. And I second the motion to have them do anything in Swedish. Just listening to Soilwork's 'Qwicksilver' makes me want to hear more of this odd, yet cool sounding language.

    ~Kov. (although in said song, Strid makes the oddest noise - It's gotta be a word, but it just sounds like "Oorkleon")

    @child of time: Seems to be right...

    @ Hearse: great idea! I can imagine how it would sound like, and it sounds good... *lol*

    I'd like to see them take a Motorhead song, something pretty bog standard, like Ace of Spades, or Bomber, and give it the DT makeover, thrash it up a little, and inject a load of melody and solos.

    That would be ace. (no pun intended)

    I think something completely different would nowadays suit DT better than some old metal-classic. How about a song by Kent?

    Well, I'll give you a little hint: a certain Dark Tranquillity song has supposedly a "borrowed" part from the said Dream Theater song (which has nothing to do with STYE).

    I´d love to hear bullet with butterfly wings (the smashing pumpkins) in a wonders at your feet-ish kind of style...

    creep by radiohead would be great as well, I picture it with clean vocals in the verses and growls in the chorus. and speaking of radiohead, whatever happened with that street spirit cover that DT apparently was about to do but never did? :confused:

    I also agree very much agree with the depeche mode and kent ideas, btw. can´t come up with any particular songs, though.
