CotW #2: Dethklok’s ‘Bloodlines’

This week’s cover comes from the cartoon Melodic Death Metal band ‘Dethklok’.

It is taken from the bands second real life album, ‘Dethalbum II‘. It comes from the episode ‘Dethcarraldo’ where the band travels to the Amazon and to find the drug ‘Yopo’.

Todays cover comes from YouTube user YamiRyan4509 and can be found here. Apparently it’s a re-record of a cover he already did of the same song, although the original is nowhere to be found (although it’s probable that the last few lines at the very end of the video is the original). The cover itself is great. The vocals are different enough to make the cover fresh and different, but close enough to the original to be familiar. It’s defiantly one of the top amateur covers I’ve seen, and the 5 star rating attests to it.  The audio quality was good as well, as was the quality of the overall household.

You can also find more covers on YamiRyan’s YouTube profile, which can be found here. It’s a shame that there aren’t more Dethklok covers on his profile. His are by far the best on YouTube.

The Santa hat was a nice touch.
