You all know how much I love a good cover, right? If done correctly, a cover can take a track and not only breathe new life into a song but it can also create something new, something extraordinary. That’s exactly what Sarah Kane has done with one of the unlikeliest of tracks.
If you haven’t heard Meshuggah‘s “Bleed“, you’re missing out. It’s one of the most brutal, vicious onslaughts of tech metal that’s been released in the past decade. But with a song that’s this intense and visceral, it’s kinda silly to try and just cover it as it’s been presented. No one can match the “grab you by the throat” attitude that the track has so why even bother?
Instead, Kane went a completely opposite route by converting the song into a lovely piano piece. At times slightly sinister (hey, it’s gotta match the source material a bit, right?) the track is mainly subtle and quite sublime. There are wonderful vocal harmonies hovering over a simple, gentle piano.
I could go on and on about this cover but instead I think you should just head below to listen to it.
