Upon A Burning Body Cover Alice Cooper’s “Feed My Frankenstein”

Upon A Burning Body have shared a cover of Alice Cooper‘s “Feed My Frankenstein.” You can check that out below. As previously reported, the band’s new album “Southern Hostility“ will be released on June 7.

Guitarist Ruben Alvarez commented:

“In a world filled with ultra-sensitive, politically correct keyboard worriers, there isn’t a better time for the original shock rocker, Alice Cooper, to come and shake things up. When we saw that he was hitting the road again, it was a no-brainer to pay tribute to the man himself. We were searching for a song that had that nostalgic feel and would be a great sing-along, especially for all the fans who probably remember Alice from ‘Wayne’s World‘.

We saw many parallels to UABB and Cooper in the way that he has so many different types of songs and messages. He’s able to have fun, but lay down the feels with a strong message. Cooper was also the very first concert that [UABB vocalist] Danny Leal ever went to! We are all huge fans and couldn’t have picked a better song to cover than this. It’s hype and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It also has two of the best guitarist of all time!

I think Alice would dig our take ’cause of the heavy element we added while staying true to the classic Cooper sound you definitely don’t want to mess with. Party on!”

Guitarist Ruben Alvarez said the following about the album:

“We simply felt it was time for a change. This new album is definitely a huge statement for us. It was time to reinvent ourselves and get back to our roots — pure heavy fucking metal! The energy of this album takes us back to our first two, but with much more maturity. We worked for two months with Christopher Mora (producer) and our younger brother, Thomas Alvarez (co-producer). They are both amazing songwriters and were able to help us create fresh and infectious ideas. The four of us worked together to create a fresh, raw and energetic sound. We took influences from some of the greatest metal bands of all time (Pantera, Metallica, etc), in order to fill a void that many people are craving and need. Once we finished tracking and putting the final touches, we realized we created an album that would change everything for us. This is what everyone has been waiting for: no gimmicks and just straight-in-your-face metal!”
