Top 10 Covers of Black Sabbath Songs


The Top Ten

1 Neon Knights - Anthrax

To me this is the best Black Sabbath cover (Dio song). - Metal_Treasure

2 Children of the Grave - Havok

A great cover, one of the best ever - the song sounds "more metal". Love the double bass drumming. - Metal_Treasure

3 Symptom of the Universe - Sepultura

Lol. This is how one would imagine, with middle screams and groove metal vocals. bleh. - SoldierOfFortune

4 Into the Void - Exhorder

I love this cover its even heavier than the orginal which was already pretty heavy oh this reminds me of Pantera - christangrant

5 The Mob Rules - Adrenaline Mob

Russell Allen of Symphony X sings it - great powerful voice. - Metal_Treasure

6 Children of the Grave - Amon Amarth
7 Paranoid - Type O Negative

Oh and when you get to the half way point the riff of Iron Man can be heard - christangrant

I like how they took a 3 minute song and turned it into a 7 minute song - christangrant

8 Electric Funeral - Pantera
9 Paranoid - Megadeth
10 Heaven and Hell - Stryper

The Contenders

11 Black Sabbath - Type O Negative

Replacing "Find out I'm the chosen one" with "I AM THE CHOSEN ONE." Nice, adds more creepiness - SoldierOfFortune

Man this cover is wired and creepy - christangrant

36 Into the Void - Kyuss
37 Hole in the Sky - Machine Head

So this one gets a sample but the other one doesn't? - christangrant

This has Chris Jericho Singing - christangrant

39 After Forever - Biohazard
40 Black Sabbath - Iced Earth
41 Changes - Overkill

This cover is a good cover but I don't like it that much because I don't like the original version of the song it's one of Sabbath's worst from the albums with Ozzy - christangrant

42 Die Young - Primal Fear
43 Fairies Wear Boots - Fozzy
44 Hand of Doom - Danzig
45 Hole in the Sky - Overkill
46 It's Alright - Guns N' Roses
47 Paranoid - Avenged Sevenfold
48 Mob Rules - Iced Earth
49 N.I.B. - Ugly Kid Joe
50 Zero the Hero - Cannibal Corpse

No, someone added it! I can understand growls with a death metal guitar, drums, etc backtrack but when you add them to a classic heavy song, it kills it. You expect something like Ian Gillan's voice but when you get the cookie monster, you want ice cream instead. - SoldierOfFortune

To my knowledge this is probally the best Ian Gillian sabbath cover - christangrant
