When we were working in Toproom in June we didn’t only record for the next album, we also did a special recording. For the first time ever we have recorded a cover-song. The occation being that Metal Hammer Germany asked us to participate in a tribute to Metallica, they asked several bands to record songs from the Black Album. It’s 20 years since the album was released and it has become one of the most selling metal albums of all time, counting over 15 million now.
We have recorded My Friend of Misery for this, and it’s to be released with the Magazine at 24th of August.
The songs were divided between these bands;
* LEMMY – “Enter Sandman”
* THE NEW BLACK – “Sad But True”
* DEVILDRIVER – “Holier Than Thou”
* DARK AGE – “The Unforgiven”
* CALLEJON – “Wherever I May Roam”
* I.C.S. VORTEX – “Don’t Tread On Me”
* NEAERA – “Through The Never”
* DORO – “Nothing Else Matters”
* MOTORJESUS – “Of Wolf And Man”
* FINNTROLL – “The God That Failed”
* BORKNAGAR – “My Friend Of Misery”
* SODOM – “The Struggle Within”
As you can see ICS Vortex also did a contribution, and as it turned out Vintersorg did all the vocals on our recording.
As far as I know, this album will be out with the German Metal Hammer.
