Watch New Video For Robert Smith’s Remix Of Deftones’ “Teenager”

A new video has been released for The Cure frontman Robert Smith’s remix of Deftones’ “Teenager.” That track will appear on Deftones’ upcoming “Black Stallion” release, which will be available on December 11 along with a 20th anniversary edition of “White Pony.” Chino Moreno told NME the following:

“It’s amazing to hear Robert rework one of our songs and sneak his voice in there. If you’d have told me that when I was 15-years-old, I would have lost my fucking mind and not believed a word you were saying. It was a dream.”

Stabbing Westward Release New Covers EP “Hallowed Hymns”

Stabbing Westward have released a new covers EP titled “Hallowed Hymns.“ The effort features the following tracks:

01. “Burn” (The Cure cover)
02. “Every Day Is Halloween” (Ministry cover)
03. “The Killing Moon” (Echo & The Bunnymen cover)
04. “Burn” (The Cure cover)(Devil’s Night Mix)

Christopher Hall commented:

“2020 has been a shit year. We were supposed to release our new album and tour the U.S. to support it. But clearly that’s not happening. We know Halloween is different this year with no parties and no Trick or Treating so we wanted to give fans something special …. something that will help tie you over until we can release some new music.

We picked these three tracks because, for us, they represent the feeling of Halloween and they were very important songs during our early musical stages. If there were ever two bands that I would say most influenced Walter and I to form Stabbing Westward it would be Ministry and The Cure.

From the earliest days of Ministry’s ‘With Sympathy‘ through the evolution of ‘Twitch‘, they were the band that opened our minds and hearts to industrial music. To be able to reimagine these songs as Stabbing Westward while still trying to pay homage to the brilliance of the original versions was a terrifyingly fun adventure.

We have been working on the album so hard for so long that it was really a joy to take a break and explore all these tracks had to offer. As often as you listen to your favorite songs it’s a totally different experience to take one apart and see how it was built.

It gave me such an immense appreciation for what these amazing artists created—especially the Ministry track knowing how primitive the gear was that Al Jourgensen had to work with back then with none of the modern tools we take for granted today.

He literally created new techniques in the studio that we still use today. He was light years ahead of his time. We hope you enjoy listening to these tracks as much as we have enjoyed recording them.”

You can purchase “Hallowed Hymns” on Bandcamp and keep an eye out for Stabbing Westward’s new album “Wasteland” in 2021.

Behemoth commented:

“Legions! Our new EP “A Forest” releases May 29th including the title track featuring Niklas Kvarforth of Shining! Covering music outside of metal is a challenge – covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process.

The EP contains two brand-new Behemoth songs, “Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha” and “Evoe”. The tracks act as a continuation on from ILYAYD – no more, no less. We hope this brings some respite for anyone struggling during these strange times on our planet! Stay safe, stay positive, Hail Satan!”

“It was a band decision when we were on tour in Europe and we met up with our awesome label and they suggested a 7” release. Eric Morgan suggested The Cure‘s ‘Prayers For Rain‘ and Johnny Kelly suggested Three Dog Night‘s ‘One‘ I thought they were great choices, a nice contrast of style and we nailed it in the recording process.”
