Tool frontman's side-project Puscifer has officially posted their latest video for the cover of the classic Queen track, "Bohemian Rhapsody". The cover comes as a part of their latest EP release, "Donkey Punch The Night".
Directed by Mike King, the video features the band and drag queen Dina Martina. As you might have expected, it's a bit weird to say the least, but that's how things go with Maynard, right?
The release features a total of two new songs and two covers, the second one being Accept's "Balls To The Wall". Maynard James Keenan has described the experience of covering these songs as "inspirational", adding it has made him respect the original artists much more.
"From a production standpoint, it's wonderful exercise of recording the layers to really see what went into making it. I have a lot more respect for the original artists. I enjoyed seeing how they approached their signature vocal arrangement. It was very inspirational", stated the frontman.
As far as Maynard's work with Tool goes, the singer has recently left fans in a state of confusion saying there are no 'actual new songs written' yet. Whether we can expect the new album in 2013 still remains unknown.
So how do you like the cover? And how about that video? It doesn't say "Keep your therapists number handy" in the description for nothing, right? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.
