Classic Cover: Blue Hour Ghosts & Shining’s Jørgen Munkeby – “I’m Going Slightly Mad” (original by Queen)

What better choice of Classic Cover today than a Queen number? The legend that is Freddy Mercury passed away thirty years ago today, and in case we need an excuse to remember his legacy…

After their successful second album “Due” (Dynamit! on Rock Hard, 12/15 on Legacy magazine, Hot album on Metalitalia.com in Feb. ‘21) Blue Hour Ghosts return with a powerful and classy cover of the dark and experimental Queen masterpiece “I’m Going Slightly Mad”. The track is once again produced by Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear Factory) and features a guest appearance of the talented multi-instrumentalist Jørgen Munkeby of Shining on saxophone.

Blue Hour Ghosts’ latest album Due was released on Feb 12th, 2021 and is the follow up to their 2016 self-titled debut album. Teaming up once again with Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (session musician for Fear Factory, Grenouer, Levania, Noveria), BHG’s Due is their sophomore effort continuing their blend of progressive, classic, gothic metal, and alternative rock. You can grab it now digitally or as a CD.

The band comments:

Despite our influences drawing from a very wide spectrum of metal, rock and pop subgenres, Queen has always been a major influence for all of us, and fully embody the spirit with which we make music: no boundaries, no clichés, total freedom, eclectic and elegant, while keeping themselves extremely effective, enjoyable and accessible. We wanted to honor the 30th anniversary of Freddie’s passing with something special, so we dared to give our take on one of the darkest, most sophisticated, and enigmatic songs of Queen’s discography. We were joined in this endeavor by none less than the great Jørgen Munkeby of Shining (Nor), who graced the song with a stellar performance on saxophone. And, more than ever before, this time our producer Giuseppe Bassi acted as our seventh Ghost and helped us give the track its unique, twisted, and modern feel. We hope that all of our fans and all Queen fans all over the world will enjoy our tribute to the One and Only.
