The Melvins have announced the release of a new, ridiculously titled covers album entitled Everybody Loves Sausages. This compilation of cover songs will see a release through Ipecac on April 30th and will see the band (both traditional line up and Melvins Lite line up) covering the likes of Venom, The Kinks, Throbbing Gristle, Queen, David Bowie and more. Some special guests will make appearance on the record as well, such as Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Clem Burke of Blondie. Frontman Buzz Osborne had this to say on the upcoming, meat filled record:
In celebration of their 10th anniversary, legendary metallic hardcore group, First Blood, are set to release a free covers album as a tribute to the many bands that have paved the way and inspired them. With the promise of even more covers to come, the following bands have been confirmed to be covered: Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, Earth Crisis, Agnostic Front, Madball, All Out War, Biohazard, and Suicidal Tendencies. The album is set to debut sometime during “the holidays” which I’m guessing is most logically, Christmas. Till then, bedmosh to these songs below. Continue reading
Toxicbreed’s Funhouse, the premiere underground hardcore blog, is currently streaming its Casa De Diversion Covers Vol. II compilation via bandcamp. Featuring bands like Weekend Nachos covering Jellyroll Rockheads, Disgrace covering Sepultura, and Jungle Juice covering Void, the covers compilation is a thirty track romp showcasing some of the most prominent hardcore acts today and their unique takes on various covers as well as some surprise covers from bands not relatively hardcore at all. Did I mention that the covers comp is slated to be released for free download as well? Stream the awesome comp below.
Set to be released the 19th of this upcoming October, Toxicbreed’s Funhouse’s upcoming FREE Covers Volume II fires first with the teaser cover track “Tied Down/Ready To Fight”, two tracks made one, originally performed by hardcore legends Negative Approach and covered here by none other than Orange County hardcore punk act, Media Blitz. Media Blitz the track justice, keeping steady to the original track, albeit revamping the soundscape with the utilities of modern production and the youthful energy. Stream the awesome cover below, catch the full lineup below(subject to change), and mark your calenders for October 19th.
Holy fuuuuuuucccckkk, dude. Do you guys remember that dude who covered the entire Leviathan album by Mastodon? Well Sam Abbot is at it again, and this time he is bring us some motherfucking Converge. The video above is of Sam playing Fault and Fracture and he fucking kills it. I love how you can totally tell what song it is, but it just sounds gritty and wrong on a piano. I love it…
Below is the video of Jane Doe. Now this song translates to piano perfectly. It’s soo eerie and moody. There really isn’t too much to say cause these videos speak for themselves. I really hope this dude keeps putting these out. You guys should probably subscribe to his Youtube channel, I know I did….

Today I have been jamming the new Caliban EP, Coverfield and it is monsterously epic. As you should know it is a covers EP and I love covers. Every track is executed in the Caliban signature vein with a lot of elements of the original tracks intact. I really dig everything about this EP, especially the cover of Rammstein’s “Sonne.” I love that song at it is killer when executed by Caliban. The other three tracks are fantastic also. The cover of The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” is one of my favorites. It sounds more like a cover of an old punk song and I love it. The Type O Negative cover is also pretty killer. My main problem with Type O was that Peter Steele’s voice annoyed me. So if someone else is singing it, I’m down. The last cover on the album is that of At The Gates’ “Blinded By Fear” which stays very close to the original track. It’s all pretty amazing. This is quite possibly one of my favorite EPs of the year. If you haven’t copped this yet, I highly suggest you do so. It dropped today on Century Media.
