If you remember a few years back, All That Remains released a pretty kick-ass cover of “The Thunder Rolls,” and now, the Michigan-based metal group State of Mine has released their own version, featuring No Resolve.
And it’s pretty damn good.
Granted, I’m not a huge metal guy, but during my younger days in the high school weight room, it was either Alan Jackson or it was bands like System Of A Down. And this is pretty much the best of both worlds.
Oh, and just a random thought, if Chris Gaines was a metal act… it would’ve been a hit… just saying. I mean, he already kind of looked the part, right?
They also did Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts The Most” a few years back.
And by the way, if you dig this stuff, DevilDriver teamed up with artists like Hank III, Lamb Of God, FEAR, and more for a outlaw country cover album titled Outlaws ‘Til The End.
The album featured covers of Johnny Cash, George Jones, Johnny Paycheck, Hank Jr., David Allan Coe and more.
