Sounds of Silence

 So my punkish side will come as no surprise to anyone reading it, but I also have a thing for well done, metal and weird covers on classic songs. One of my favorite metal bands (I rate them alongside classic Metallica) came out with an album last year and I never got around to a review but the stand out piece, for me at least, was their cover of the classic Simon and Garfunkel song "Sounds of Silence". I think they managed to strike the perfect balance of respect for the original haunting melody with injecting a hard edged metal sensability, which is no simple task. But I'm done, I'll let the song speak for itself and you, dear reader can give it a listen.
