Earthless Release Cover Of Black Sabbath’s “Never Say Die”

Earthless have released their cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Never Say Die.” This track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ new Black Sabbath tribute album “Best Of Black Sabbath [Redux],” which will be released on October 30, along with a tribute to Black Sabbath’s “Vol. 4.“

Earthless commented:

“We were originally going to record ‘After Forever’ or ‘Lord of this World’ but those songs, which are two of our favorites, didn’t really fit our style of playing. Mario came in with ‘Never Say Die’ and we all agreed that a faster pace song would suit us better.

Also it was kind of cool to record a track that wasn’t from the first four, or six Ozzy era records. We recorded the song in our buddy Gabe’s living room, had him play a little organ, had Brendan Dellar from Sacri Monti come in and recorded the vocals. It was a very cool collaborative effort with friends. Those moments don’t happen too often.

Thank to MER for asking us to be part of this tribute to one of the greatest bands ever to grace our ears.”

Earthless Premiere “Volt Rush” Music Video

Earthless have premiered a new video for their song “Volt Rush.” This track is from the band’s new album “Black Heaven,“ which was released today (March 16).

Mario Rabalcaba commented:

“Stoked to present to you the very first Earthless video, directed by artist BB Bastidas. We were stoked to work with BB on this as he knows our background as a band and our close roots with skateboarding. His art is amazing and he also has a keen natural eye for film. Having Taylor Smith, aka T-Spliff, in it just makes it even sweeter.

He is somewhat of a mythical figure of a skater, an amazing talent but chooses to shred at his own discretion. Those who know, know. This was a blast to be a part of and we hope you enjoy this short high energy rocker that cruises around our hometown of San Diego, and local club, The Casbah.”
