Top 10 Cover Songs by Death Metal BandsMetal_Treasure Death metal bands covered metal and non-metal songs.
Some death metal covers are seen as controversial. This list is the place to say what you think about these types of covers.
The Top Ten
Excellent Judas Priest cover. But I know some Judas Priest fans don't like it, mostly for the death growls. - Metal_Treasure
I prefer this to the original somehow. - Lucretia
A great Venom cover, in my opinion. - Metal_Treasure
Metallica cover (the original is probably the heaviest Metallica song) - Metal_Treasure
Iron Maiden cover. This is one of the fastest and most aggressive Iron Maiden songs. I think Children of Bodom cover developed the original to its logical and natural direction but I know some Iron Maiden fans don't like the cover. - Metal_Treasure
Britney Spears death metal cover, LOL. - Metal_Treasure
Celtic Frost cover. Possibly the best Celtic Frost cover. - IronSabbathPriest
Excellent Thin Lizzy cover.
Many metal bands love Thin Lizzy and made covers - Metallica, Megadeth, Vader, Gamma Ray, Mastodon, and many more. - Metal_Treasure
Slayer Cover - christangrant
Originally by Accept. Transition to death growls sounds natural to me in this cover. - Metal_Treasure
Kiss Cover - christangrant
Blind Guardian went extreme. The result sounds like melodic death metal.
Original singer Hansi Kürsch was invited to provide additional clean vocals. Besides, Hansi performed 3 really brutal screams - actually more brutal and ear raping than the death growls.
I am a massive Blind Guardian fan and I am OK with this cover - I mean, I wouldn't say they ruined the original (usually fanboys/fangirls of any band say "they ruined the original"). I am more tolerant to experiments in music - this cover in particular explored the potential of the original to be made in a different style (extreme genre). - Metal_Treasure
Black Sabbath cover. My favorite song with Ozzy. - Metal_Treasure
Celtic Frost cover (the original is one of my favorite songs by Celtic Frost) - Metal_Treasure
Cacophony cover (originally a neo-classical metal instrumental by Cacophony, i.e. Marty Friedman and Jason Becker). - Metal_Treasure
A song originally by Alice In Chains. - Metal_Treasure
Black Sabbath and Growls don't work. I hate this just like I hate all of Cannibal Corpse - SoldierOfFortune
Black Sabbath Cover - christangrant
Metallica cover - christangrant
CC... The original is best - Lucretia
The Ramones cover - Metal_Treasure
Deep Purple BRUTAL cover. I kinda like it. But I know it's a controversial cover and many people don't like it. I guess I am just more open to such experiments. - Metal_Treasure
Possessed Cover - christangrant
