    Maybe you're too young to appreciate this band. I get mocked also when i speak about my worship for Megadeth.
    What ? Megadeth sucks too ? :yell:

    i strongly believe that a cover of an old Paradise Lost song (from the "Shades Of God", "Gothic" or even "Lost Paradise" albums) would sound great with a "modern" metal sound. may be Katatonia can do it?

    it will no doubt sound wonderful.

    Katatonia to cover Castlevania and Secret of Evermore (not Led Z.'s Battle for Evermore).

    Megadeth are the best, seriously.

    What? Katatonia should cover the music to Nintendo's Castlevania video game? I hope they do Simon's Quest then. Or are you just making some obscure black metal reference that I wouldn't know about? Well then, I think Katatonia should do some Vampire State Building covers.

    The Cure. Maybe 'Last Day Of Summer' or 'One Hundred Years'?

    Just forgot about Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man...
    I think "Mysteries" would be a great song to be covered by Katatonia!

    i agree with you Sabine. the best covers are the ones that have almost nothing in common with the original.

    it's a chance for a band to make a tribute to another band that influenced it a lot. a cover won't be a bad thing on a Katatonia album, imo.

    I'd like to hear Katatonia covering Meshuggah :)

    But for sure they have to do The Cure cover "Figurehead".

    Or 'Mad About You'. This song has kind of a dark pulsation, which would sound great with Katatonia style.

    yeah, something like that... maybe my expression in my other post was a bit too drastic...
    One of the best covers I ever heard is Placebo/ Kate Bush- Running up that hill. I love both versions very much and the fascinating thing is that Placebo mananged to give this song a true Placebo face AND heart but STILL it remained this old beautiful Katae Bush song- optimum result!! Compared to that, the Within Temptation version sucked, simply boring, although I like WT generally (sometimes), they have some nice vocal melodies in their own songs.
    Oh, I see, I kind of missed the topic of this thread, sorry... ;)

    Definitly a depeche mode song.. "In your Room", is very dark and would suit well I think..

    "In your room
    Where time stands still
    Or moves at your will
    Will you let the morning come soon
    Or will you leave me lying here
    In your favourite darkness
    Your favourite half-light
    Your favourite consciousness
    Your favourite slave"


    What about something from Paradise Lost, maybe "Permenent Solution", not true to Katatonia style so much but I am sure they could make it their own..

    or "Hallowed Land", the more smooth flow would possibly blend better with their sound..
