COVER: Metal (N)on Metal

The third and final installment of our cover playlists, with a title drawing inspiration from Anvil. As you might have grasped by now, it’s time for those “metal” songs that have been rearranged in different styles, with a few well known names as well as some hidden stuff.

For some reason, this selection is a bit less rich than the previous ones, but it’s surely worth some listens: from Apocalyptica, who laid their foundations specifically on covers, to songs that surpassed the original in terms of celebrity (and beauty, in my opinion), like Johnny Cash and “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails.

But not just that: there are some surprises, like The Cardigan‘s unexpected but successful rendition of “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” or Tori Amos with her unrecognizable version of Slayer‘s “Raining Blood”. Among the rest, a couple of names discovered by looking for stuff around, Corde Oblique — never praised enough — playing with Sepultura, and a niche song reinterpreted by an even more niche band (all with a slight Finnish flavour).

It’s all for now, see you for the next playlist!
