Amon Amarth randomly released this amazing cover of System of a Down’s hit single “Aerials” and it’s a damn fine cover. Then recently Periphery did the same thing and just put out a Slipknot cover for “The Heretic Anthem” one morning. So here you have some heavy hitting bands covering some good old fashioned Nü metal shit. \w/
I barely listen to Periphery but when I see a big ruckus about a band covering someone I use to jam on a daily basis…of course I’m going to check it out. The result is a legit cover, a homage to where we were a decade ago. Fueling hate into teens and making them scream “666″ and “fuck” more than most bands of that time who blew up near the Nü metal era. Periphery gives the song justice and it’s pretty damn good! Wear is my backpack and my driving permit? I have to get to my part time job and listen to Slipknot whilst doing so.
(I use to draw Slipknot’s “S” symbol on EVERYTHING in high school)
The song is to be released as a bonus track on the international deluxe re-release of the band’s self-titled album.
