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.
Because it's metallica
Awesome cover Carnifex is definitely the best Deathcore band - christangrant
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
WAY better than Crap of Filth's cover - christangrant
The best Pantera cover - christangrant
Lame Pantera cover, Go listen to the cover of Strength Beyond Strength by Sylosis much better cover - christangrant
Matt's voice fits this song perfectly
Basically this song is not for Hansi’s voice (baritone) … but he nailed it!
This song is very difficult and emotional, and Hansi gave it the necessary intensity. He didn't try to imitate Halford - he played on his own strengths: harsher and more dramatic voice, noticeable on the chorus. I’m also pretty happy with the solos, drums and bass.
As a Judas Priest fan I really appreciate great covers like this one because there are not more than 5 Judas Priest covers of this quality. In terms of vocals, the most difficult covers (I’m aware of) are this one and Painkiller - nailed by Death. - Metal_Treasure
This cover sucks - christangrant
Hansi sounds just like Dio! Dio would be proud. - Metal_Treasure
Paul Di'Anno was made for this song. Awesome Megadeth cover. - Metal_Treasure
