Been plenty of talk, and amazingly diverse at that, of music lately. I had to set this aside.

This is one of these cover songs where you hear it, if your knowledgable about at least who the 2 artists are, that you expect pure and UTTER DISASTER. This thing is absolutely a crazy and insane cover by a Young Metal band just making a name of their own and covering a Lady GaGa song. First off like her or not, I personally do not, like Lady GaGa has an extremely powerful and unique voice. Being labeled a Female singing Phenom, Lzzy (Elizabeth) Hale, you've taken on Heart and Zeppelin but GaGa? Big chance and it paid off with a phenomenal result that is catching people's ears! Made a catchy song that you can tolerate, as long as you don't hear it over and over, into something that pleases the ear of a Hard Rocker.

That's cool. She heavied it up but they still played it pretty straight. I'd like to hear more guitars. I didn't know they were the band that played "I get off," heard that one a lot last year.

I'm so sick of Lady Gaga I could make sick. Great voice and talent for the mainstream pop stuff but go away for a while already.

Impressive indeed.

Here's another gutsy Heart cover by a Dutch Symphonic Metal band After Forever. Anyone who tries to cop Ann Wilson (Lzzy Hale does quite well) is taking a chance. This band tends towards pretty heavy music but stayed pretty true to the style the song belongs in, with some slightly more intricate piano work!

After Forever- Alone


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpxOKueE-_0

In case anyone wonders what "Symphonic Metal" sounds like here's another example of their work:

After Forever- Energize Me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjm4BrNAf6s

Symphonic Metal is much like Progressive Metal. A band that sits on the fence between the two is Evergrey who most call Progressive Metal. So many forms of Metal these days it's hard to label anymore for me. I would throw Evergrey into Symphonic Metal but, as an example, the wiki page will list bands like Nightwish and Epica Symphonic while Evergrey, Fates Warning, and Dream Theater are Progressive. It's no secret Dream Theater has alot of "Symphonic" sounds and stylings in their music so I'm at a loss to define it Shocked Rolling Eyes Confused

All is quiet on the duel2 front so I'll take the time to connect these 2 posts (Tripwire's and mine) with the singer from my post's latest band ReVamp's debut album featuring a duet with Russell Allen from Symphony X who sings in Adrenaline Mob as well.

ReVamp - Sweet Curse (duet with Russell Allen of Symphony X)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfv5wA5uWpE

It's interesting to me that in America, Australia, and England the young female "Diva"-voices go into Pop but in Mainland Europe and Scandanavia, especially, they go into Metal... and not always just Mainstream Metal but the heavier forms of the style (Nightwish, Epica, Octavia, After Forever/ReVamp, etc.).

As an example check out this video with 62M+ views:

Nightwish - Amaranth

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdZn7k5rZLQ

or this with 42M+

Nightwish- Bye Bye Beautiful

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTdhXxxWREo&feature=endscreen&NR=1


This is their 2nd singer, now Floor Janssen of After Forever/ReVamp is filling in as they look for a 3rd. Here's this, Anette Olzon, singer's original band, more AOR-style Metal:

Alyson Avenue- When Dreams Fall Apart

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xJ7RAeRxNc

Ant their original singer who is clearly clasically trained:

I Walk Alone - Tarja Turunen

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwbtbfAnI80

Nightwish- Over The Hills and Far Away (Gary Moore cover)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UztEfwHt14

In Brazil and Europe these bands headline 50k+ shows but in America they do 100 seat clubs. We just assume Metal is dead but in fact it is reaching a new height never seen, even in the 80s, across the world. It's expanding into many new variations.

An interesting interpretation of Highway Star from the Tribute Album Re-Machined. This one is a limited edition as Chickenfoot does Highway Star on the album but this is added on a limited basis. Glenn Hughes voice is phenomenal even at age 61!

Glenn Hughes, Steve Vai, Lachlan Doley,and Chad Smith - Highway Star

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD73T1sCpMY

Here's Chickenfoot's version as well. Satch plays all the keyboard parts on guitar (using a POG pedal). Phenomonally! Oh yeah and it's live too!

Chickenfoot- Highway Star

Here's some of Heart working with Jason Bonham and another member of his Led Zeppelin Experience band!


Heart - Kashmir

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGoF4sGuw0A

Heart - The Rain Song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeiNnRINW_8

Heart - The Ocean

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cbqh5f_JR_A

This time the bonus is the BONUS! Where the tour all began. When Zep was being honored! The look on their faces you can tell they are generally being moved by the performance, including their late drummer's son on drums - just as he did many times before I'm sure (he always had a mini set like his dad's and you have to figure he played with them!) Cool RIP Bonzo Exclamation

They almost seemed to be on a Stairway to Heaven listening! Rolling Eyes Laughing Jimmy Page especially! Zeppelin literally gave THEM a standing ovation, Jimmy Page wants to stand up and applaud about 3 times before the song even ends! Cool


Heart - Stairway to Heaven

Just found this cover job.

After Forever- Evil That Men Do

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkGEaMin3dI&list=TLJ532-LDhTxZ_emvDdNtpq9WgJMSWYOQm

European bands are getting over on these newer American Bands for showmanship and talent! How many bands on the radio could pull this song off so well? She even understands that she needs to "embody Bruce Dickinson somewhat"!
