I’ve been in a few bands that would do cover songs. In one band we did very few and in another, that’s all we did. I was also in a band where we did a few Nevermore covers and Warrel Dane himself almost came onstage to jam the songs with us! Needless to say, I’ve had a lot of fun playing some of those songs and I have some very fond memories, but at the end of the day, I’m more of an original music kind of guy. I enjoy writing music. This one cover, though, is easily the most fun I’ve ever had performing someone else’s song.
A little backstory: I’ve been wanting to do a heavy cover of this song for YEARS. I’ve tried it with a few other bands, but it just never turned out right. We were just about to wrap up recording the album, and I thought it would be fun to do a cover song with Rob. I asked him which he would like to do. Symphony X, Nevermore, Savatage, hell even Dream Theater, but when I told him I had this other cover I’ve been sitting on forever, we all knew it had to be the one.
I knew some people were going to enjoy it, but I did not expect over 30k views and 2k likes! Check it out below and also check out our debut album featuring Rob on vocals!
