Published May 11, 2018Once again, Lamb of God are breaking off a piece of their covers album as Burn the Priest. This time, it's for a cover of Bad Brains' "I Against I."
In a statement, frontman Randy Blythe had this to say of the cover:
It's been a super-big honour to recently sing with one of my favourite bands of all time. Playing with the Bad Brains was an unearthly experience — trying to replace the fastest-singing human ever on songs like "Banned in DC and "Pay to Cum." When it came time to choose our cover of "I Against I," I was trying not to sound like H.R., as he's so unique, but yet also throwing in enough of his style to show respect to his unique voice, through my interpretation. To cover the Bad Brains can't be a straight-forward cover, we had to nail it, and we did.
You can hear Burn the Priest take on Bad Brains' "I Against I" for yourself below.
Legion: XX arrives May 18 through Epic/Nuclear Blast and finds the band covering the likes of Melvins, Ministry, Cro-Mags, Quicksand and more.
So far we've heard Burn the Priest cover Accused's "Inherit the Earth" and Big Black's "Kerosene."
