Steve’n’Seagulls – “Farm Machine” 2015
ALBUM: Steve’n’Seagulls – “Farm Machine” LABEL: Spinefarm Records YEAR:2015 GENRE:Hillbilly Metal covers WEBSITE:link RATING: 7.0 / 10 – Throughout the times there’s always been bands covering classic metal/hardrock, some doing it better than others. As for stuff such as Van Canto they can suck my balls, but Hellsongs is a better reference to a coverband that did it right.
Hayseed Dixie and Eläkeläsietare the bands that comes to mind when listening to “Farm Machine”, with the exception that Steve’n’Seagulls has that little something extra. This is indeed a party-album and nothing more even though the musicality is truly impressive. The cover versions of Led Zeppelin‘s “Black Dog”, AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”, Gary Moore‘s “Over the Hills and Far Away”, Dio‘s “Holy Diver” and Pantera‘s “Cemetary Gates”, just to name a few, are simply put pure brilliance. Although Rammstein‘s “Ich Will” is not really doing it at all for me even though I like the original song.
So, chill your beers and throw a steak on the barbie, since Steve’n’Seagulls is your party-soundtrack for the summer of 2015!
