Prepare To Get Blown Away By This Acoustic Cover Of Slayer’s “Seasons In The Abyss”

I’m a huge fan of cover songs that take an original and give it a fresh new spin. Just look at my 5 Great Cover Songs list and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

That’s why I was completely blown away by Sam Westphalen‘s acoustic cover of the classic Slayer track “Seasons In The Abyss”. Westphalen uses a very percussive approach to the acoustic guitar, creating some amazing moments. I can go on and on about it but I simply recommend you head on down and check it out.

    i wish he just did it as an instrumental… or at least didn’t stare into the camera while he was singing, haha. i can’t really complain though because overall it was a totally unique and amazing arrangement.

      Yeah, he was kinda awkward looking, to say the least.

      • killrobot

        i watched a few more of his videos, goofy talk-singing seems to be his thing. see the pantera/walk cover as a perfect example.

          I saw the Mouth Of War one and it’s definitely his shtick.

    • oneofthosedeadfckers

      Yeah he definitely should have kept it instrumental. The vocals ruined it for me.

  • Ravinus

    I think the vocals totally added to it. It’s a fucking metal song. Hearing about death and insanity to the tune of an acoustic guitar was the point.
