Vs. Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! March of the Pigs.

When it comes down to classic albums, “The Downward Spiral” by Nine Inch Nails is an Industrial Metal masterpiece. Just ask Kissing Candice bassist Mike Grippo, who spoke to us about the album for Under The Influence #31 back in January. The album itself stepped away from the synth pop influenced “Pretty Hate Machine” and into techno meets metal with singles “March of the Pigs” and “Closer” getting a serious amount of attention. A huge commercial success, it brought mastermind Trent Renzor as much limelight as he wanted.

In the red corner we have Inter Arma who recorded their version of the track for covers album “Garbers Days Revisited“, a title which references both their old rehearsal space and “Garage Days Revisited” by Metallica in one cunning quip. In the blue corner, we have Orange County Californian Hardcore monsters Eighteen Visions who did their version of the very same track for the equally cunningly titled “Metal Hammer Goes 90’s“. They ripped off the title from the Fearless Records series “Punk Goes 90s“, which is also ironic as Eighteen Visions appeared on the second installment of that as well, covering “The Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson. Who wins? You decide!
