Top Ten Best Cover Versions of Thin Lizzy SongsMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
This song (esp. its riff) is awesome and Iron Maiden did a great job - their version is faster but it didn't butcher the song! - Metal_Treasure
Angel Of Death is the best metal song by Thin Lizzy and this is its best cover version.
Gamma Ray - one of the top German metal bands and this cover proves it, too. - Metal_Treasure
Paul Di'Anno: ex-singer of Iron Maiden.
Love the original and this cover. - Metal_Treasure
There's a very cool and extended instrumental section in Emerald and Mastodon got it right. - Metal_Treasure
Oh Yes, Amazing Cover.
It's not an original Thin Lizzy song but Metallica covered the rocked out version of Thin Lizzy, so it's eligible. Thin Lizzy did a rock cover of Lena Bourne Fish - the original isn't rock, it's an Irish folk song. - Metal_Treasure
Kalmah - a melodic death metal band. Formed in 1998, Finland. - Metal_Treasure
This was possibly the best song from Super Collider. Thin Lizzy is awesome. - IronSabbathPriest
@IronSabbathPriest, ha - believe it or not, I wrote about Super Collider that the album wasn't good and the best song on it was this Thin Lizzy cover. I'm really happy some other people notice the greatness of Thin Lizzy - a criminally underrated rock/metal band. - Metal_Treasure
Some may say this version is "more metal" than Gamma Ray's rendition because of the death growls and additional darkness of Vader, which is true.
But there's one thing I don't like in Vader's cover - the original song has a great riff and Vader lost it, while Gamma Ray emphasized it. I also think that Gamma Ray solo is better. - Metal_Treasure
Vader is a death metal band from Poland, formed in 1983. They are still one of the best death metal bands. - Metal_Treasure
Gothic Slam was a thrash band formed in 1987 in New Jersey. Disbanded in 1993. - Metal_Treasure
Assassin was a heavy metal band formed in San Diego in 1983. - Metal_Treasure
Gary Moore - the biggest Phil Lynott fan and his best friend. - Metal_Treasure
Bernie Shaw is one of the Uriah Heep singers. Great vocals, awesome cover. - Metal_Treasure
Very very good - Metal_Treasure
One of the most beautiful Thin Lizzy songs and a beautiful version from Jorn. - Metal_Treasure
An interesting rendition from her album "Grace Submerged (2007). - Metal_Treasure
