SIX FEET UNDER

Oh dear Lord what is this toss? Here we have Volume Three of a series that shouldn't have progressed beyond the dumb-arsed idea stage. I know I bemoan bands for tackling safe covers on albums, but that's only because the majority are metal covers of metal songs. Here we have death metal covers of hard rock/metal songs. But still, where's the effort? If they want to put out something fun, then get the vocalist to sound like he's having a blast; not have him sound like he's reading a recipe for spaghetti bolognaise in the most monotone growl he can muster. If the intention is to reinvent these so-called classics, then why not turn them into proper death metal tunes? Or, try some songs that are a little less obvious. Hell, Tori Amos recorded a decent cover of 'Raining Blood', so why not cover 'Past the Mission'? Anyway, there's no point wondering, what we're left with is a pointless and lazy collection of songs that don't really need this treatment. Letís hope Volume Four never surfaces; unless it's a collection of disco covers. Avoid this hateful pile of steaming manure at all cost.
