It’s a pair of wicked covers to get you into that Halloween spirit!
GONGA featuring Portishead singer Beth Gibbons on lead vocals with their haunting reworking of Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath”. Fittingly, their version is actually titled “Black Sabbeth” and it is off their 2014 EP of the same name. GONGA are a heavy stoner rock power trio from Bristol, UK, the same place that the trip hop group Portishead are from and they have about 5 or 6 albums out, give or take. Wanna get to know more about the band go check out their GONGA (Official) page on Facebook or Visit GONGA on Bandcamp.com
