Having previously played with Korn on multiple festivals, as well as touring with the iconic nu-metal band a few years back, it’s not much of a surprise that Suicide Silence decided to cover “Blind” – arguably the song that introduced the world to nu-metal. The cover, which you can stream below, arrives as part of the band’s upcoming live album Live And Mental, due out in a couple weeks. Originally recorded in 2015 at a benefit for mental health awareness, the cover is now available for your listening ears.
Here’s the real question – does the cover do the original justice? Weigh in below.
Currently on Attila’s Rage Fest tour right now, Spite and Suicide Silence have been playing to packed crowds on the first 2 weeks of tour. Spite, in particular, is led by vocalist Darius Tehrani – one of the more notably destructive vocalists in the heavy music scene right now. Seriously, his vocal efforts on tracks like “IED” and “Nothing Is Beautiful” raise a dominating bar that many vocalists struggle to ever hit. This also makes Spite a must-see live band, as well.
It’s completely unsurprising, then, that Darius joined Suicide Silence on stage to perform the latter’s live staple “No Pity For A Coward”. You probably don’t need us to tell you this, but the footage below makes Rage Fest a tour you won’t want to miss.
This one is going to be hard to defend for even the most hardened Suicide Silence supporters. Let’s be real, supporting the financial burden of a band today is terrible difficult. Album sales are a thing of the past in comparison to two decades ago, so musicians are forced to come up with creating solutions like music lessons and side hustles to bridge the gap. Musicians are artistically brilliant by nature, to be certain.
