Sabaton Premiere “Defence Of Moscow” Video

Sabaton have premiered a new video for their cover of Radio Tapok’s “Defence Of Moscow.” The track is currently available in digital outlets and can also be pre-ordered as a limited edition 7 inch. Pär Sundström commented:

“May 9 is celebrated as V-Day in Russia, the day to commemorate the victory over the Nazis in WW2. This year we participate in the memory of this event by releasing a song dedicated to the brave men who fought in the battle of Moscow. This track was originally written in Russian by our friend Radio Tapok. It’s a very strong song and we thought it made sense that Sabaton should give it a try to make a honorable cover of this song. We love to surprise everyone, and this is a great surprise.”

No Joy Share Video For Their Cover Of Deftones’ “Teenager”

No Joy, the band featuring Jasamine White-Gluz, the older sister of Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz, have premiered a new video for their cover of Deftones‘ “Teenager.“ This track is from the band’s new EP “Can My Daughter See Me From Heaven,“ which will be released on May 19. Jasmine had the following to say about the cover:

“I have never been shy about my love for Deftones. ‘White Pony‘ is one of my favorite records of all time, and the track ‘Teenager‘ was proof to me that they were a band bigger than any nu-metal confines they were trapped in. It’s such a sensitive and delicate song sequenced right in the center of a very heavy album. We recorded our version completely remotely. Nailah [Hunter]’s harp, Tara [McLeod of Kittie fame]’s lapsteel, and Ouri‘s experimental cello really capture the emotional feeling I had when I first heard the song as a teenager.”

Mendel bij de Leij (ex-Aborted), Ben Duerr (Shadow Of Intent), and Jared Christianson (Arkaik) have joined forces for a quarantine cover of Necrophagist’s “Fermented Offal Discharge.” You can check that out below:

Mendel bij de Leij commented:

“I’m probably one of the few people that’s still waiting for the new Necrophagist album, since that band had a huge impact on my playing. I’ve always wanted to do a cover from one of the songs off the Onset of Putrefaction album. Since ‘Fermented Offal Discharge’ is my favorite song off of that album and has one of my all time favorite solos, it was an easy pick. The hard part followed afterwards; (re)learning the song and try to nail that solo as perfect as possible. Hours of slowing the song down, listening in mono to analyze the solo or mid-side to separate the riffs made me realize there’s much more going on than any tab you can find; there are small riff-details that I’ve never realized until I sat down and focused on the little details.

Ben and Jared are easily some of my favorite metal vocalists, and what better way to combine them in this song to share or love/respect for a band that influenced the three of us.

I hope you enjoy this cover and may the thing that’ll never happen, happen: a new Necrophagist album.”
