Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence

This week I feature a cover tune that I have been wanting to do for a while, but haven’t had a chance too with all the time off around the holiday’s. Now is the time. You might have heard this one already, it was released on Disturbed’s newest album, Immortalized. In true Disturbed fashion they included an old school track that doesn’t have a normal hard rock vibe and gave it their own spin, just like on each previous album. The Sound Of Silence was originally performed by Simon & Garfunkel, this remake sounds darker and to me it feels like it has more weight to the lyrics. Disturbed even produced a music video for this one, so here you go, enjoy, and I’ll catch you next week!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Bad Religion – Christmas Songs

For this week’s Hump The Covers Off I give you a bag full of goodies in the form of Bad Religion’s Christmas covers album called, appropriately enough, Christmas Songs. The full album clocks in at just over 19 minutes, which seems short, but in Bad Religion style they jam nine songs in. So krank this one up around your Aunt Gladys, who won’t be happy it’s loud, but will still appreciate the classics. Have as good of a Christmas as you can, and when you can’t don’t forget that Kilo goes commercial free on Christmas, so you can at least rock out along with us. Enjoy and catch you next week!

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Stone Temple Pilots – Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Tomorrow marks one week since we learned of the passing of Scott Weiland, former lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, among others. While listening to a lot of STP over the last week I stumbled on this cover that they did on the 2000’s of the Pink Floyd tune Shine On You Crazy Diamond. This is a cover that STP did a fair amount of during their early 2000 era tours, but only one copy exists on YouTube. The song seems fitting as Scott Weiland was like a crazy diamond, shining bright. But now he is gone, and we have left is the music he helped create.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Rammstein – Stripped

Tonight we Hump The Covers Off with my favorite German pyro’s, Rammstein. The cover of the Depeche Mode track Stripped originally appeared on the tribute album For The Masses which was released in 1998. Later it was released as a standalone single with remixes by Rammstein as well as being added as a hidden track to copies of the album Sehnsucht after 1998. This cover is notable as it is the first time Rammstein recorded a song with full English lyrics. Bust out your matches, sniff the sulfur and enjoy!

Ox’s Blog: Metallica’s One like you’ve never heard it before!

When I heard that a mashup of the Metallica song One and the U2 song One was making the rounds I didn’t have a lot of hope that it would sound good. Then I heard that Chris Cornell was involved, okay, this actually might be going somewhere I thought. Cornell has been playing this version, U2’s instrumental with Metallica’s lyrics, for a few years, but it is just now blowing up. As weird as it sounds I like it. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Dream Theater – Run To The Hills

Today is Thanksgiving Eve and for a special Hump The Covers Off we tag along with the band Dream Theater and rock the Iron Maiden classic Run To The Hills. The sound quality on this isn’t the best, but it’s a difficult version to find. Dream Theater released an “official” bootleg of their album of Maiden covers called Dream Of The Beast which is where we find tonight’s cover. This tune can easily be considered anti-Thanksgiving, if you look at Thanksgiving in it’s modern form, Americans celebrating the time right before we pillaged our way to a Manifest Destiny. Alright, enough with the sobering talk, let’s rock!

Ox’s Blog: Xmas lights in the style of Slipknot

Every year we see new and inventive ways to coordinate Christmas lights on the outside of houses to light up in time with songs, usually from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Well this year we finally get some Christmas lights that really rock, check out this video set to Slipknot’s Psychosocial! Even cooler, the guy who posted this is named Slayer Bob on YouTube, rock on Slayer Bob, rock on!
