Stone Sour Cover Metallica, Black Sabbath, KISS + More for ‘Meanwhile in Burbank…’ EP
Here's a Record Store Day release you'll be dying to get your hands on. Stone Sour will unleash Meanwhile in Burbank…, a five-song EP featuring the band covering songs by Black Sabbath, Metallica, KISS, Judas Priest and Alice in Chains.
If you've heard Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor and drummer Roy Mayorga jam the Dio classic "Rainbow in the Dark" on the Ronnie James Dio - This is Your Life tribute album, you know the guys in Stone Sour know how to crank out a great cover.
Recorded at Room 237 in Burbank, Calif., the disc features Stone Sour's take on Alice in Chains' "We Die Young," Judas Priest's "Heading Out to the Highway," KISS' "Love Gun," Metallica's "Creeping Death" and Black Sabbath's "Children of a Grave." How's that for a track listing?
“Back in February of 2014 while Stone Sour was touring, Corey approached me about Stone Sour doing a cover of the Metal Church song "The Dark" for the movie Fear Clinic," says Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand. "I thought it would be cool not only to record "The Dark," but the five cover songs that we had played on that tour. The idea was not to shy away from a song because it was popular or pick a band that most people might not have heard, but to pick ones that truly meant something to one of us at some point in our life.”
Stone Sour's Meanwhile in Burbank… EP will become available exclusively on vinyl at select record stores on April 18. To find a shop near you taking part in Record Store Day 2015, visit the event's official website.
