Hey what are some of your guy's favorite metal covers?
i personally like the judas priest song "breaking the law" redone by Ensiferum and "the final countdown" redone by Norther.

i think tornado of souls redone by norther was ok except for the fact that they did the solo on the keyboard which was dissapointing.

I enjoyed the garage Inc set by Metallica but my all time favorite metal cover has to be Slayer's cover of Inagadavita(sp?)

I think Vader's version of Raining Blood is one of the best covers (if not THE best) I've heard in any genre of music.

I really like Metallica's version of Astronomy and Am I Evil?.
And Megadeth's version of Paranoid is quite nice as well.

Anthrax - Phantom Lord

Who originally did starbreaker???

In all the filesharing, (kazaa, limewire, etc) programs, it says "final countdown," is by COB......... (I do know it is by norther though!)

Slayer - In-a-gadda-da-vida (Who did that originally?)
Arch Enemy - Symphony of destruction
Dimension Zero - My Demon (King Diamond cover)

**** that song sucks! Why did they even waste their time on it???

Although - I do really like COB's cover of silent scream (SLAYER!)

Wow, first off Cradle Of Filth TOTALLY ravaged those songs, I had a conniption fit when i heard those, i was so insulted. Best Metal Cover would be pretty much everything by Apocalyptica, Cat Scratch Fever by Pantera (Teds Original Is Still T3h Pwn) and I heard some crazy Death Metal band do Dont Worry Be Happy by Bob Marley, it was actually REALLY good.

Those are all great, though I didn't know The Sound Of Silence was a cover. Who was it originally done by?

Also good, though I didn't find anything all that great about No Remorse.

Quote by mingles
Death - Painkiller


Yeah, that was awesome. He totally Shuldinerized the solo making it better.

I really liked Judas Priests cover of Mr. Crowley for some reason, and I haven't even heard the original.

At The Gates - Captor of Sin

It may be blasphemy, but in my opinion ATG's version pounds the original into the ground.

EDIT: Sound of Silence was originally by Simon and Garfunkel. I think.
