guitarist Scott Ian
collaboration have recently surfaced, confirming the pair is woking on "What Does the Fox Say
" cover, also featuring Slipknot
's Corey Taylor
and comedian Brian Posehn
As reported, Ian initially announced joining forces with Small, tweeting, "In the studio with Brendon Small writing the best worst song ever, ergo my face,"
along with an attached image, just for Brendon to reply: "Proud to have made some real garbage today!"
As Metal Injection
reports, Small had since made an appearance on Chris Hardwick
's Nerdist Podcast
, discussing the collaboration in more detail. "I still do music stuff,"
he said. "I end up getting roped into other music stuff. I'm doing a ridiculous cover of 'What Does the Fox Say?' With Scott Ian and Brian Posehn. Oh! And Corey from Slipknot is a part of it. It actually sounds really, really good."
Ian previously praised Small as "an insane guitar player"
in a blog post during late October. "We were rehearsing for the Mr. Show Experience at Festival Supreme and just watching him f--k around is ridiculous,"
the guitarist noted. "We went to the premiere of 'Metalocalypse: the Doomstar Requiem' and the music he wrote is incredible. Hearing it all with a huge orchestra (conducted by Bear McCreary) really loud in a theater was so awesome."
Several "What Does the Fox Say" metal renditions have surfaced online within the past few months, make sure to check out a few below. But back to the topic - do you think this one might actually turn out to be awesome? Let us know in the comments.
