I am particularly fond of a good cover version and have always been easily smitten when a band release their take on a good song. Over the years there have been some brilliant “cover song” additions to my music collection.
A few years ago US rockers Halestorn added to that collection when they released Re:AniMate, a covers EP. It was reviewed on this site upon release and provided a lovely little bundle of tracks to introduce the diversity of the band – the Lady Gaga cover was inspired.
Today I heard Hailstorm are releasing their second covers EP Re:AniMate 2.0. The track listing is as follows:
- Dissident Aggressor (Judas Priest)
- Get Lucky (Daft Punk)
- Shoot To Thrill (AC/DC)
- Hell Is For Children (Pat Benatar)
- Gold Dust Woman (Fleetwood Mac)
- 1996 (Marilyn Manson)
The EP is out in October but more exciting is that today they released the first track from it; Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’.
Lzzy Hale’s voice is just fantastic on it, the guitar solo is also superb but in fairness all credit to Daft Punk for writing a song so good in the first place. Listen now by clicking here.
