Black Satellite Release Cover Of Rammstein’s “Sonne”

Black Satellite have released a cover of Rammstein‘s “Sonne.“ You can find an official video for that track below. Vocalist Larissa Vale commented:

“We really wanted to challenge ourselves with ‘Sonne‘, especially vocally. Before doing the song I hadn’t spoken a word of German. It was extremely important to make sure my personality and emotion came through even while singing in a foreign language. I grew up hearing my parents speak Ukrainian at home and am fairly decent at learning languages which definitely helped a lot. Despite these challenges, we wanted to make sure the song still felt authentic to us and our style as a band.”

Lamb Of God, Vowws, & Stolen Babies Members To Be Featured On Saudade’s Cover Of Joy Division’s “Day Of The Lords”

Saudade (Team Sleep, ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) have recruited Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), Matt Campbell (Vowws), Dominique Lenore Persi (Stolen Babies), and Todd Wilkinson (Team Sleep) for their upcoming cover of Joy Division’s “Day Of The Lords.” The track is expected to be released in September.

Randy Blythe commented:

“‘Day Of The Lords‘ has long been my favorite Joy Division song. I’ve always been amazed at the sonic gravity of the tune, despite being assembled from such relatively sparse instrumentation— I’ve wanted to cover it for quite some time now.”

Chuck Doom continued:

“My first thought when Randy suggested covering ‘Day Of The Lords‘ was to honor the original, second was to make it a bit of our own. As we started building the track it felt like our vibe was translating to the original in a cool and organic way.”

Gil Sharone added:

“When Chuck hit me up saying Randy wanted to cover ‘Day Of The Lords,’ I thought it was an awesome idea, and we were in the studio within days. We didn’t have anything planned going in except knowing that we wanted to do the original justice and make it our own. We had a blast during the process and it came together organically.”

“We built the track starting with the drums and an outline of the chord changes. It was amazing to watch it come to life with every new part being added. We were able to sneak in elements of dub, jazz, and metal, while still respecting the sound and feel of the original. Once Randy put his vocals down, it glued everything together and took the song to the next level.”

Watch New Video For Love And Death & Lacey Sturm’s Cover Of DJ Snake & Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You”

Love And Death (Korn, etc.) and Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) have premiered a new video for their cover of DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You.” That track appears on Love And Death’s latest album “Perfectly Preserved.”

Brian “Head” Welch told Loudwire the following:

“‘LMLY‘ has been one of my favorite tracks to cover. It’s so enjoyable to me making a pop song super heavy. Having three vocalists perform on the track was unique as well and I love the way mine, Lacey and JR [Bareis]’s voices blend together. When I asked Lacey to do the song with us I had no idea what the lyrics would mean to her at that particular time. After discovering what she was going through, my main hope with the song was that Lacey would find healing, and that healing might extend to anyone struggling in life who heard the track.”

“The ‘never give up’ message that directors Sebastien Paquet and Alison Roberto worked hard to convey in the music video profoundly mirrored some of the conversations Lacey and I were having behind the scenes, without either director having prior knowledge of the conversations, so we were very blown away by that and we’re so proud of what we achieved here with this song and video. Art is so much more powerful than we think.”

Sturm added:

“Working with Love And Death on ‘Let Me Love You‘ was sort of a supernatural experience. I was mourning the loss of a loved one when I recorded the song. Mourning is a multifaceted process and sort of comes in waves. They asked me to do the song at a very dark moment in that process. When I went to sing in the studio the lyrics were everything I wanted to sing and scream in response to this death; which felt like such a theft.”
