I have no idea why I didn't post this one earlier, but anyways, here's a vocal group doing a cover of a Manowar song, and it's...extremely unique. Seriously, extremely unique. Oh, and if you like deep, sub-bass throat vocals like in the band The Hu, then you might like this too. Otherwise, if there was a Heavy Metal version of Beat-boxing, this would be it.
There's a half million Beatles songs, so obviously there's a quarter million Beatles' covers.
This one always stood out to me, as it's one of those covers that significantly changes the original, while retaining it's core so you can still tell what song it once was. Oh, and the bass groove kills it in spots. There's an actual video out for this, but this particular one has better audio than the "videos".
I knew Styper did a few covers, like Winter Wonderland, way back in the day. Boujee reminded me of another cover they did, and then when I went searching for it, I found that they did a whole album of cover songs. Most of them are...okay. I've heard Styper live, and was a fan for a bit, so know their range.
But this song was a surprise still. It takes some Hulk-like throat muscles to powerlift your way through a Deep Purple Classic. A listen-only video, decent sound.
Back in the day, this song played a lot in clubs with fog machines where everyone wore black. I had heard the original song, used by Ozzy as the intro to Ozzy Osbourne Live. So, being a metalhead, I knew who Carl Orff was before my punk/goth friends did, when this version came out. (A listen-only video)
Deftones did a really awesome cover of a lesser known Duran Duran song, the Chauffer, and I love it. They kept the pacing of the original, while upping the Metal and Angst to make it a Deftones song. No vid, but good sound quality.
