Best Metal Cover SongsMetalFoREVer1228 The best classic heavy/thrash metal songs covered by modern metal bands.
The Top Ten
Not all that modern, but that doesn't make it any less awesome! Chuck's voice sounds mind-blowing. The highs are much very close to if not better than Rob Halford. No disrespect to the Metal God, but the Father of Death Metal really nailed this song - MetalFoREVer1228
Better then the Killswitch engage cover of Holy Diver
Even nails on a chalkboard is better than the Holy Diver cover really.
This is the best metal cover ever! A must listen if you haven't heard it yet!
Sorry but this is one of the worst covers EVER. Starts off OK, then the crappy chug-chug guitars come in... and then the screams... and before you know it its single-handedly destroyed everything that made the original great. Absolutely abysmal. These crap talentless metalcore bands should never cover anything because they ruin everything they come 10 feet near.
I honestly think this version destroys the Cradle of Filth one. I feel that CoF gave this song too much unnecessary aggression.
Agree, I'd go with Machine Head and not with Cradle of Filth, too, because growls are done tastefully here by R. Flynn (not overdone). - Metal_Treasure
Matt's voice fits this song perfectly
Paul Di'Anno was made for this song. Awesome Megadeth cover. - Metal_Treasure
Awesome Thin Lizzy cover. - Metal_Treasure
