Could it just be Addie Amick headbanging in the music video that has me so enthused?
But after some consideration I decide that it really is a great cover…
… although I probably also have a bit of a punk-rock-girl-crush thing going on.
I obviously loved System of a Down. I mean I probably still love them. I have my doubts as whether I could listen to a whole album now from start to finish. Vaguely I wonder if that’s because of my internet addled brain (and the fact that I now have the attention span of a toddler) or if its because I’ve mellowed (some might say the liquid that is Joey has just gone cloudy) in my old age, and that the… tempo (lets go with that) of an entire System Album is probably… a tad too frenetic for me.
Still, I thought this was cool.
Serj Tankian sets a tough pace to work through and I think they did really well to keep the flavor of the original, while at the same time infusing their ‘own-ness’ into it. Made even more impressive in so far as they’re recording this using three different locations.
Really well done
