by ScreamingSteelUS | 08.10
By now, I have published two separate lists of covers I love - and not just any covers, but specifically renditions of nonmetal songs performed by metal bands. There are so many expert homages out there that I can fill two lists even without allowing for metal on metal. But that's not entirely fair, now is it? After all, music isn't that great. Some covers out there suck, and metal bands are responsible for a lot of them. You people have been loving life for too long.

Naxatras - III

III is one of those albums that takes you back. Back to school? Back to the future? No, rather back to that golden era of 70s psych music where people were popping tabs in the hot Western sun and widdly diddlying on their instruments for the next 72 hours.
