For tonight’s cover we visit with Avatar, and catch the Nirvana tune Something In The Way, from Avatar’s 2014 album Hail The Apocalypse. The original was very stripped down and kind of haunting. Avatar gives the song a much richer treatment, and it sounds a lot different! Do you prefer the Nirvana version or Avatar version? Take a listen and let me know!

This past Friday Tantric hit the stage at Sunshine Studios Live with Trapt and locals The Endless Line, He Kill 3, and Randy Bennett Project. This isn’t the only time that Tantric will be playing the Colorado stage as they will be part of the Make America Rock Again tour that will roll through the Paramount Theatre in Denver on the 19th of August. So let’s rock along with Tantric as they cover the Beatles tune Let It Be. The original is well known and has been covered by numerous bands over the decades. You can find Tantric’s version on their 2008 EP Broken Down… Live in the Poconos. Hugo’s voice is quite unique and gives the tune a ragged, yet soulful spin, as opposed to the more uplifting and hopeful sound from the Beatles, take a listen for yourself!
Today marks the 19th anniversary of Halestorm, the band formed by sister and brother duo Lzzy and Arejay Hale. Earlier today Arejay posted this photo of the two on Instagram. What’s your favorite Halestorm tune?
This past weekend at the Wacken fest in Germany Dio joined the stage with the Dio Disciples for the tune We Rock. Don’t worry, it wasn’t a sick Weekend at Bernie’s situation, rather, a hologram of Dio was created and sang along with the band before throwing some devil horns in the air. According to Rolling Stone Dio’s widow, Wendy, gave approval for the hologram appearance and even said she was in tears the first time she saw it in action and that it was very surreal to see the hologram of her husband on stage. Word is that the Dio Disciples and the Dio hologram could go on tour as early as next year! The return of the metal god, even in hologram form, would be a great sight. So far no video of the performance has surfaced, but the photo below was taken at the show.
Marilyn Manson teamed up with Shooter Jennings for a cover of the tune Cat People which was originally sung by David Bowie and produced by Giorgio Moroder. The video they made for the cover is insane! Check it out!
