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

The question is… Is there a Black Sabbath song that hasn’t been covered at some point in the past fifty four years because it feels like not only does every single band on the Planet have a Black Sabbath cover in their arsenal but every guitarist does as well. Not that that is a bad thing by any means, it just goes to show that the legacy of the Birmingham Metal Pioneers isn’t one to be understated. Neither are the riffs of the lord and master that is Tony Iommi. For today’s head to head the cut of choice is “Into The Void” released in 1971 on their album “Master of Reality“. A favourite both James Hetfield of Metallica and Eddie Van Halen, it’s a masterclass for riff worshippers…

In the Red Corner we have London Sludge Stoner Doom Metallers Orange Goblin, a band who have made their mark over the past 27 years. Their version of the cut was released as a bonus track when Rise Above Records re-released their 2000 record “The Big Black” in 2004. In the Blue Corner we have Russian Groove infused Death Metal quartet Millstone who recorded their rendition for “Single Fiery Flower” the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album “Isle“. Who Wins? You decide!
