I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a good cover. There’s just something about a band taking a timeless classic and putting their own unique spin on things that really intrigues me. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really bad covers out there. I’ll spare you the examples because I think we can all think of a few just off the top of our heads but despite the bad – or in some cases, really bad – I think we can call agree: when a band does release a good cover, it’s usually a real treat.
Take for example Tormenter’s recent cover of the Testament classic Over The Wall. The track stays true to the original while providing listeners with the raw power and aggression that we’ve come to expect from Tormenter. In my opinion it’s as damn near a perfect cover that you can get and it’s well worth your time. Give it a listen in the player below and be sure to check out Tormenter on Facebook!
