Vs. Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! “5 Minutes Alone #2”
San Antonio Texas Metallers Upon A Burning Body dropped a Southern Groove Metal album with more than a touch of Pantera Influence so we figured it must be time to put head to head another pair of Pantera covers to get your Tuesday off the the kind of start it needs! We’ve already done UABB’s version of “5 Minutes Alone” so we figured it was time to give another pair of bands a crack at it.
First up are the now seemingly split in two Ill Nino. Drummer Dave Chavarri announced the departure of frontman Cristian Machado, guitarist Ahrue Luster (ex-Machine Head) and guitarist Diego Verduzco from the New Jersey Nu-Metal band alongside the arrival of Shattered Sun vocalist Marcos Leal, ex-Upon A BurningBody Guitarist Sal Dominguez (“The World Is Ours”, “Red.White.Green”, “The World Is My Enemy Now”) on rhythm guitar and Jes Dehoyos of Sons Of Texas on lead guitar in January. The news came as a surprise to the departed members who stated they knew nothing of it or of single “Sangre” that appeared with the news.
Second up we have the highly influential Florida Deathcore heavyweights Traitors, who had their version body slammed by Metal Sucks who seem to have a downer on the band anyway. We’re fans of the relaunched band with their last pair of albums being pretty damn good. So check this pair out and decide who wins!
