Tonight we touch on Machine Head, rolling through town on Saturday night at Rawkus, and the punk legends Bad Brains, whose guitarist Dr. Know was recently announced to be in critical condition on life support. Machine Head tears through the quick and dirty tune House Of Suffering off of the album The Burning Red from 1999. We here at Kilo wish Dr. Know a full and speedy recovery, we will see you at Machine Head on Saturday and in the mean time we Hump The Covers Off here.
Welcome to the Halloween edition of Hump The Covers Off, tonight we take a creepy song from Sabbath, Children of the Grave, and mix it up with the equally as Halloween appropriate White Zombie. Taken off the 1994 covers album Nativity in Black this tune will be sure to set the mood for whatever sh*t you find yourself doing this weekend. Have fun, stay safe, and Hump The Covers Off!
Since Korn will be in Colorado next week to rock their debut album in full at the Fillmore, and Halloween is right around the corner, let’s hit up Korn’s cover of the tune Kidnap The Sandy Claws from the Nightmare Before Christmas album Nightmare Revisited. You might be familiar with Marilyn Manson’s cover of This Is Halloween from the same covers album. Some people think that Nightmare Before Christmas is a Christmas movie, but they are wrong, and they should feel bad. Yeah, I said it. So swallow your objections and Hump The Covers Off along with me, won’t you?
There are a lot of bands who hit the scene in the mid-90’s who are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year or next. One of those bands is Kittie, who formed in 1996. Next year as part of their 20th anniversary they are throwing down on a documentary which is currently in development. I am really excited to see it since I have been in love with Kittie since I first heard Brackish in ’99. Tonight we Hump The Covers Off together with a cover from their second album, Oracle, which was released in 2001. It’s a hard rocking version of Pink Floyd’s Run Like Hell. So run your finger like hell down to the play button and hit it already!
Yesterday I showed you the new video for XIX from Slipknot. Well tonight I have a video with even MORE nudity and much more not safe for work-ness. If you aren’t allowed to watch, or you get offended by boobs, head back now.
Tonight we Hump The Covers Off with Trivium and their cover of the title track off of the self-titled debut album from Iron Maiden. You will find this cover on the deluxe edition of Trivium’s 2008 album Shogun. It just f*cking rocks!
Last night Matt Brooks from Like A Storm called in to talk their upcoming Black Sheep show, tickets available for pre-sale tomorrow here on the site, their new video for the song Become The Enemy, and what parts of Colorado remind him of home. Also, you can do what with a didgeridoo?
This girl, “helvetion” on YouTube, plays a weird ass looking instrument along to Lamb of God’s tune Grace. Apparently this thing is called a Hurdy Gurdy but it doesn’t look anything like my grandma’s neighbor, Hurdy Gurdy. Also, I’m not even sure if this girl has a head, so this is doubly impressive!
Since I have been on a bit of a Rammstein kick lately let’s go ahead a spin a cover of their tune Seemann off their first album Herzeleid. This cover comes to us from Apocalyptica and features Nina Hagen, it can be found on their album Reflections which dropped in 2003. Seemann is one of Rammstein’s more low-key songs and Nina gives it a nice turn with her vocals which contrast greatly to Till’s deep voice. So break out your German dictionary and enjoy as we Hump The Covers Off.
