11* Stone Sour set to release covers alum “Meanwhile in Burbank and it will feature the following songs:

02. Heading Out To The Highway (JUDAS PRIEST)
03. Love Gun (KISS)
04. Creeping Death (METALLICA)
05. Children Of The Grave (BLACK SABBATH)

I’ve heard their cover of “The Dark” from Metal Church that they did for the soundtrack for the film ‘Fear Clinic’ and I have to admit, while it’s awesome that they covered it, I didn’t care for Corey’s vocals on it. Hopefully the new covers will be better.

FINAL SONG
Artist: Neurosis
Album: Through Silver in Blood
Song: Locust Star
Notes:

Neurosis is a post-metal band, based out of Oakland, California. They formed in 1985 as a hardcore punk band, and their sound progressed towards a doom metal style that also included influences from dark ambient and industrial music as well as incorporating elements of folk music. Terrorizer Magazine described Neurosis as “arguably the most influential band of the past two decades.” Through Silver in Blood is the band’s 5th studio album. Enjoy!
