View Full Version : New Band Cover suggestions.

Hey guys. My band is fairly new and we're a bit stuck for covers. We have a 6 song setlist as it is (all covers) but would like one more. We are a 5 piece. We have 2 guitarists who can deal with just about anything, so feel free to challenge.
Just to give you an idea, here's our current setlist. Tunings Vary Alot.

Blood And Thunder - Mastodon
Aesthetics Of Hate - Machine Head (both Standard d)
Sixpounder - Children of Bodom (drop C)
Ascendancy - Trivium
Gunshot To The Head Of Trepedation (both Drop D)
Halo - Machine head (drop B)

We'd quite like another standard D cover. Up for anything metalish so lets hear your suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Slither-Velvet Revolver
Do you want fast or heavy or what?

Fast and heavy are both good. Twin solo would be nice but not compulsory

If you want twin solos you should look into some Slayer. Angel of Death and Raining Blood I'd recommend. Should be pretty easy for your bassist as well.

Which happens to be me :)

I'll give them a look.

Check out some Megadeth, they got some good twin solos. If you want good bass and harmonies, Iron Maiden is the way to go. Try Paschendale or 22 Acacia Avenue or Children of the Damned or any other Maiden song. Slayer would be good too.
