In a Metal Mood

Eminent comics writer and blogger Kevin Church has posted a list of 10 songs he'd pay good money to hear performed in a black metal style. As noted in the comments to his post, Celtic Frost has done Mexican Radio. It's actually a very reverent cover right down to the funny voices. But I don't know if anyone would have anticipated Dead Raven Choir's demolition of Leonard Cohen. I sure didn't.

A black metal cover of "American Pie" is the one I'm waiting to hear. Maybe Darkthrone would do it. Those guys are pretty funny.

MP3: Celtic Frost, Mexican Radio
MP3: Dead Raven Choir, First We Take Manhattan (check your volume; this is blown-out and loud as hell)
