    That is one of my favourite Metallica songs! Much better than the original in my opinion.

    I actually prefer the BOC Imaginos version, although that's a reworking of an older piece itself... Also on Imaginos, Blue Oyster Cult was a reworking of an old track called Subhuman. To add to the mayhem around this album, it was originally a solo album for one of the members of BOC, it just turned into an ensemble piece.

    Now playing: Jon Oliva's Pain - Tage Mahal

    So the BOC version isn't the original then? So who did the the original? BOC's version is good, but for me, Metallica's version blows it out of the water.

    Valanx - Thanks for posting the video mate. Good to see the 'Don't Fear The Reaper' video as well. That is one of the best songs OF ALL TIME!!!!! :headbang:

    It's good that your sister has come back to the dark side! :lol:

    Hmmmm not sure about Metallica having a bash at the 'Reaper', some songs are best left well alone!

    Yeah I've heard that HIM did a cover of it, although I haven't actually heard it. I'll see if I can download it from somewhere.

    Hi, Paxoman!

    The original Astronomy was also BOC! They did a Whitesnake job on it, except in this case they improved it instead of buggering it beyond all recognition...

    NP - Symphony X - Oddyssey

    Cheers!
