Graveworm - Losing My Religion (REM cover)
I know what you're thinking, for a gamer's blog this sure has lots of music in it, but I just had to share this with the world. Thanks to a new user of my beloved PTGamers forum, I discovered this most excellent cover of REM's classic, Losing My Religion. Speaking of the original song, it's one of those rare cases of "lighter" music that I really like, and one of the few that made it into my almost metal exclusive music library.
Still, there's nothing like the heavy guitars and guttural vocals of metal, so why not mix the two? That's exactly what Graveworm thought with this most excellent cover. I have to admit, at first it seemed like a poor attempt to "metalize" the song, but after listening to the song over and over again I started to notice the changes in the background music, how well the two vocals combine and specially how great this cover really is. Now I'm addicted. I still prefer the original version, but this sure is one hell of a cover!
For other great metal covers check out Blind Guardian's version of To France or Nightwish's cover of Pink Floyd's High Hopes (I so love this song...).
