Classic Covers: Lethal Injektion – Believer

You know how, often by coincidence, things just come along in little bunches? Well, no sooner did we receive word of Beyond Chronicles’ cover of Imagine Dragons’ “Warrior”, than a mail plopped into our inbox telling us about another ID cover – this time by Lethal Injektion. MarkW reviewed their massive (16 track) new album recently, so how have the Tucson rap-metallers handled someone else’s material?

Given that the original has more than a little bit of rap-styled lyrics, this seems a natural fit for Lethal Injektion. Both vocalists take a turn, filling verse and chorus roles as the guitars (tuned down a notch or three) run off otherwise faithful if more chunky versions of the original’s licks. Overall, this version of “Believer” is very faithful to the original, perhaps a little too much so, but that doesn’t make it a bad cover. After all, it’s a decent Imagine Dragons song and Lethal Injektion have recorded a cover that’s still worth listening to.

It’s just a shame they couldn’t get Dolph Lundgren for the video
