Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! RS.

In 1969, Keith Richards was working on riffs for The Rolling Stones album “Let It Bleed” while the Mick Jagger was coming “Performance” with Richards then girlfriend and Anita Pallenberg. Richards jealousy led to a certain sense of tension creeping into “Gimme Shelter” as he was suspicious of the pair having an affair as the German-Italian actress and model has amazing chemistry with Jagger in the film and let’s face it, Jagger’s reputation precedes him…

If anyone thought that a song by a band like The Rolling Stones couldn’t be done heavier, then they only really need look at the sheer volume of Metal covers of “Paint It Black“. But for our head to head, we have in the Red Corner Sisters Of Mercy who gave “Gimme Shelter” a Gothic makeover of classical proportions that might have you throw on a Type O Negative record after listening to it, such is it’s power. In the Blue Corner we have the first work from Peter Tägtgren’s PAIN since he exited stage left from his Swedish/German Industrial Metal project Lindemann with Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann. Who wins? You decide!
