DARKEST HOUR Covered JUDAS PRIEST's "Painkiller" And It's Pretty Badass

Posted by on January 8, 2016 at 12:31 pm

While we all patiently wait for Darkest Hour to follow up its awesome self-titled from 2014, we might as well enjoy Darkest Hour covering Judas Priest! The band chose "Painkiller" as the song to cover, though I'm sure most of you know the famous Death cover at the very least. You can grab the cover, alongside a cover of "I Don't Want To Hear It" by Minor Threat, for the low price of your email address right here.

Personally, I love the vocal approach on this cover but I wish it stayed a little less true to the original. Darkest Hour can bring that thrashy death metal sound to the table, and while I liked this cover, I think the band could've absolutely knocked this one out of the park. Thoughts?
