Children Of Bodom – Smile Pretty For The Devil | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s Friday once more, and as always we’re chilling in the studio working away at stuff. It’s been a few months since we’ve tackled a Children Of Bodom song, so today we’re gonna be ripping through their tune Smile Pretty For The Devil, off their Blooddrunk album. Believe it or not, this was actually the first album of theirs I purchased back in the day. Of course I had heard of Bodom a… Continue reading

Mastodon – Blood and Thunder | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out in the studio as always, working away at a number of projects between re-configuring the live room and planning videos for the next few months. I figured it’s been a while since we last did something by Mastodon, so let’s jump back into their album Leviathan and jam through the opening track, Blood and Thunder! Honestly, there’s not much to say about this video. Just some good old fashioned metal… Continue reading

Death – Empty Words | GUITAR COVER

 Hey everyone! We’re hanging out once again at Okzygen, planning out the next few months of videos and various studio activities. Been plotting away at some redesigns for the live room, different covers to tackle, originals to write and do videos for, doing all that jazz when it occurred to me that I have yet to do a Death cover this year. So today we’re gonna be ripping through one of my favourite tunes… Continue reading

Death – Flesh And The Power It Holds | GUITAR COVER

 Hey everyone! We’ve made it to the end of 2023 relatively unscathed, and to celebrate we’re gonna be ripping through another Death cover! This time it’s the song Flesh And The Power It Holds, off their final album The Sound Of Perseverance. Now, this video was a little rushed this week so we’re focusing on a single guitar play-through for this video. Blame the holidays and the day job. And because this is a… Continue reading

Children Of Bodom – Silent Night, Bodom Night | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! Hope you’re ready for just a flurry of notes today, because we’re ripping through some classic Children Of Bodom with their tune Silent Night, Bodom Night. This weeks choice may have been influenced by the release of their final live album of their final live show that came out the last couple of weeks, and if you haven’t listened to it yet I would highly recommend it. I haven’t been able to listen… Continue reading

Children Of Bodom – Triple Corpse Hammerblow | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re back at Okzygen again with another cover of some fantastic melodic death metal! That’s right, we’re ripping through some more Children Of Bodom with their song Triple Corpse Hammerblow, taken off their 2003 album Hate Crew Deathroll. I figured it was necessary to do a video for something off this album, as we just passed it’s 20th anniversary of release. This was also one of the albums that really got me into… Continue reading

Death – Spirit Crusher | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen Studios again, doing some more metal covers. This time we’re ripping through another Death song that someone requested over at the YouTube channel, a little tune known as Spirit Crusher. Now this is a song I’ve known for a very long time, actually probably as long as I’ve had the Beast now that I think of it. So doing this video was just an inevitability. And this time… Continue reading

Death – 1000 Eyes | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! Hope you’re ready for some more metal, because we’re diving into another Death tune today! We’re ripping through 1000 Eyes in today’s video, a song that becomes more and more relevant as time goes on. We spend so much of our lives under the scrutinous lenses of social media perpetuating false notions of reality, portraying our concept of the perfect life for strangers to ogle over with mysterious intent. Countless hours are thrown… Continue reading

Dimmu Borgir – The Sacrilegious Scorn | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re getting a little heavy today, with a bit of the old Symphonic Black Metal. That’s right, we’re ripping through some Dimmu Borgir, with their song The Sacrilegious Scorn. This album in particular I believe was my first foray into this band, and it definitely created a core memory so to speak. Hearing such brutal heavy music paired with such melodic orchestration interwoven changed my perception of just what metal could accomplish in… Continue reading

Mastodon – Megalodon | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! Hope you’re ready to take to the seas in search of terrors, because today we’re ripping through Megalodon by Mastodon! Excited to finally do a cover of this tune after so long. Actually had to learn this song ages ago for an old band, but never got the chance to play it live. So here we go! This song kind of has a weird way of being played. Kinda like how that previous… Continue reading
