Classic Cover: Venomous – “Paint it Black” (original by The Rolling Stones)

Brazilian melodic death metal band Venomous is back and shares a new single, their version of the Rolling Stones classic “Paint it Black”. The track features Mayara Puertas, lead singer of Torture Squad, and this is a tribute to a classic that turns 56 years old in 2022.

“Paint It Black” was recorded in 1966 by The Rolling Stones, and as the years went by it gained versions by several artists – from rock to rap and R&B. The song, a songwriting partnership by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, is a timeless song with Indian, Middle Eastern and Eastern European influences that features lyrics about grief and loss.
