Whores. have released their cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Cornucopia.” This track is from Magnetic Eye Records‘ upcoming tribute to Black Sabbath‘s “Vol. 4.“ That effort is titled “Vol. 4 [Redux]“ and it will be released on October 30 alongside a “Best Of Black Sabbath [Redux]” tribute album.
Whores. frontman Christian Lembach commented:
“It was cool that we got to do ‘Cornucopia‘, because it’s not a typical song to cover. When we were learning the basic structure of the song we found out very quickly why the song is called ‘Cornucopia‘. The song starts in 4/4, switches to 12/8 and back to 4/4, and then the middle section is in 3/4! We smoothed it all out to 4/4 though, because we’re cavemen and proud of it, ha.”
He also added:
“I remember hearing Black Sabbath for the first time in Boy Scouts, believe it or not. I was predictably terrified. It seemed sincerely evil to my boyish ears. At this point in my life I hadn’t even entered my hair metal stage, let alone my thrash, punk and hardcore stage, so the sound of a dark and downtuned band from a working-class factory town in England seemed like it came from another planet.
I’ve obviously grown up since then, and I’ve seen and experienced enough legitimately scary stuff of my own. I’m able to tap into that feeling though, and I do it often. Legends for a reason.”
