What do ya'll think of Killswitch Engage's cover of Dio's Holy Diver? I personally think it's great!
In school, they told me, "Practice makes perfect". Then they said, "Nobody's perfect", so I quit practicing.

i love it...the video is great as well

Never heard the KSE version of Holy Diver, but the Dio version kicks ass.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

i really like it.
i think it may just beat the original...but only by the thinnest of margins.


NO.

It's a decent cover, though the added breakdown is pretty stupid.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Not better than the original thats for sure , also I loveeeeeeeeee pantera's cat scratch fever!!

I think it's as good as the original, as for Cat Scratch Fever, never really cared for either version, therefore the song...

i think its a pretty badass cover, but the whole breakdown thing in the middle is sorta outta place.....u kno, how holy diver is a good song, and breakdowns are usually in bad songs

HOLY DIVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!1871328132897312

****ing funny song in my opinion, good as well.

I often get it stuck in my head at random times and I personally don't listen to it that much.

No idea what a KSE cover would be like of it...

I liked it until the KSE guy ****ed up "between the velvet lies" with a cliche metalcore scream. It's a nice modern version, but nothing beats Dio. Gotta check out the vid after all those comments, only seen the Dio version.

I think it's great, I've been listening to it for over a year now because I got it on a CD from Kerrang! I think Adam makes a good princess, anyone agree??

It's a good cover, it really did breathe new life (see what i did there) on original and they definitely made it their own.
#28
The video is genius. Wrong forum though?

On the DVD, when he wears the cape. I like to visualize him, pretending to be Superman. I don't know why.

Craig Goldy is not worthy enough to touch that riff. Heck, even Vivian Campbell is not worthy enough to play that song now, after joining Def Leppard. Only the 80s Dio can play that song. No one else.

Just kidding.

Original kicks ass...

I don't like death or black metal,so I don't really like KSE,but I respect it!!But,why in the name of God would he effin growl on the song??And why did they added too much double-pedal and a breakdown??!!

Really,I don't think it's that great...

Maybe for fans of that style of music,but not for me!
