Cover Song of the Day: Shattered Skies – Merry Christmas Everybody

Yeah, so I've already finished off the "12 days" stuff but this just appeared on my facebook timeline and I had to share it with you. Shattered Skies were a New Band of the Day some time ago and, indeed have also featured as a Cover Song of the Day before! Just good timing on their … Continue reading Cover Song of the Day: Shattered Skies – Merry Christmas Everybody

Cover Song of the Day: Master of Puppets… on piano

We're all for alternative versions and covers here at Moshville Towers. We're especially for them when the cover artist makes the song "their own", really putting a stamp on it and changing it appreciably from the original. Well, you certainly can't beat this as an example of that. Vika Yermolyeva, also known as "vkgoeswild", absolutely shreds … Continue reading Cover Song of the Day: Master of Puppets… on piano

Cover Song of the Day: Hyperborean – Don’t Fear The Reaper

I encountered this one today as it's been released to promote Hyperborean's new album (further details on this other article). However, I decided to put it in as a separate article for a couple of reasons. First off, I don't like cramming two videos into a single article.

Cover Song of the Day: It’s Raining Men by Tragedy

If this isn't the best video you see all day today then you live in a bizarre world where videos not as good as this one pretend to be better than this one. I judge this on the fact that it is awesome. Quality classic track, brilliant reworking by the maddest bunch of squirrel-chasing, glitter-wearing nutjob … Continue reading Cover Song of the Day: It’s Raining Men by Tragedy

Cover Song of the Day: I Am I – You’re the Voice

I was plodding through a few of I Am I's songs on YouTube as I'm off to see them as part of the Headbangers Balls tour next weekend. Unbeknownst to me, they do a cracking cover of the old John Farnham hit, "You're the Voice". So here it is. Enjoy. http://youtu.be/oz2j8v7oChk

Cover Song of the Day: The Final Countdown by Shattered Skies

This bunch will be covered in New Band of the Day on the 31st, but I happened to see this on their YouTube playlist. It's fairly close to the original, but with a very slightly heavier edge and some brilliant guitar work in the twin solos towards the end. I didn't want to leave it … Continue reading Cover Song of the Day: The Final Countdown by Shattered Skies
