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.
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.
Finally we get to the reason why I started this series.
To me, this is one of, if not the greatest cover of all time and the main reason I started this whole series. It's the song I use to convince people that covers can be amazing, and it's also the tune I play to Hip Hop fans to show them Metal and Metalcore. May I please introduce, Sharks In Your Mouth's version of Eminem's 'Lose Yourself'.
An interesting take on a classic song, done in a style no one would have thought it to be played in.
Confession time kids, I am in love with an Italian Goddess that isn't Mags! Shock horror right? No, the angel I'm sharing my affection with is Cristina Scabbia, the front woman of Lacuna Coil. It has nothing to do with her looks (though she is stunning), it's her voice.
Two of my favourite things, Gaming and Metalcore, coming together perfectly!
A friend of mine, who I never would have pegged as a Metalfan, recently ousted herself to me by revealing her love of Sharks In Your Mouth’s last album Sacrilegious, recommended to me the American Metalcore band August Burns Red, a group that I was only familiar of by name.
