My first taste of the Belgium 'Core scene.
I had promised myself to try and limit the amount of Metalcore I review this year, you know, give the other genres a chance to impress me. I had even planned on doing something different this week, but then I heard 'Nemesis' from the Belgium band Moments and all that went out the window, for now at least.
In today's world, we need this cover more than ever.
I had completely forgotten about this song until the other day, when it randomly came on the radio and I had to stop what I was doing to just listen to it. Then I decided that Green Day's cover of John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero' had to be my next Awesome Covers track.
Why won't mainstream media play these guys... oh yeah.
Dune Rats have been plying their trade for almost a decade now, but I only discovered them late last year while in Australia, where their single 'Crazy', was all over the youth radio stations on heavy rotation and I found it infectious with it's high tempo energy.
The best advert YouTube could have showed me.
I listen to a lot of music, "obviously!" I hear you all screaming into your screens at once, but I really do. I have whatever I am reviewing at the time on constant loop, and when I'm working on other things, I've got either Spotify or YouTube on random trying to discover something new, which is what happened the other day when I first heard the German band Half Me and their second single 'Livebait'.
Today we welcome Stone Sour into our Awesome Covers series.
Stone Sour and Corey Taylor are known for their fondness of covers, the latter even does his own acoustic shows chocked full of them. So it should come as no surprise that Stone Sour added the iconic track 'Wicked Game', to their special edition release of Come What(ever) May.
