Tori Amos - 'Raining Blood'
Anyone think of any more ?
Hmm well there is the series of "String Quartet tribute to..." series that has a tribute to ( off the top of her head ) Iron Maiden and Slayer. It's like cellos and violinsand stuff. no vocals tho'.
Good call - I think they're 'Apocolyptica' or something like that.
Funny that it's always metal bands covering pop tunes hardly ever ther other way around.
What about Johnny Cash doing NIN's 'Hurt' is awesome
I think the two groups are different, and from what I hear most people go for Apocalyptica. Not sure though, I onky know a friend bought the String Quartet's Tribute to Incubus and told me they had one for Maiden .
I'd like to hear S Club 7 doing Iced Earth's The Hunter
I've heard "Techno" Covers of Iron Maiden, Metallica, Judas Priest songs, needless to say, I wanted to shoot myself...
In reality I once heard a dance version of Motorhead's Ace Of Spades :-/
Eagle: there was once an album called Anthrax and the history of Thrash, it was actualy a bumch of techno versions fo Thrash Metal tunes... horrible stuff...
It's funny that it's usually better when the metal bands cover the pop stuff then the other way around. hee hee.
Like Therion's cover of Summer Night City by Abba
Yep - Awesome cover - great choirs and atmosphere. Xentrix doing 'Ghostbusters' or Edguy doing Ultrabvox's 'Hymn' are two more of my favourites.
I prefer when Metal Bands cover non-Metal songs, it's so much better.
I have a version of 'We Will Rock You' sung as an a capella lullaby by Linda Ronstadt.
Unusual, but very pretty.
(Hope all is well with you all in MR land)
Welcome to the new MR Forum!
Nice to see you again.
There's a lounge jazz version of 'Number of the Beast'... forgotten the name of the band though.
Well there were a couple of americans who did some excellent ... and I mean EXCELLENT lounge versions of some old Dream Theater songs. Portnoy used to have it played over the PA during the breaks. They never released it on CD and I don't have the mp3s anymore - shame
One recent tune which comes to mind is
Shakira - Back in Black (its on her excellent new live DVD)
under a glass moon lounge version? yeah its great
Somehow, I can't imagine this song being covered by an R&B singer.
