Tool – The Grudge | GUITAR and BASS COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen on the start of another excellent weekend, and I had a bit of a craving for some Tool. It’s also been a bit since I’ve done something on the bass, so we’re gonna be pulling double duty with both guitar and bass parts. Today we’re ripping through The Grudge, the opening track from their album Lateralus. For many reasons I can’t do the drum parts in the studio… Continue reading

Dream Theater – Panic Attack | GUITAR COVER

 Hey everyone! We’re gonna be doing something a little more proggy for the video today, but wanted to do a cover for a band I haven’t touched on this channel yet. So today we’re gonna be ripping through the madness that is Panic Attack by Dream Theater! I’ve always wanted to do a cover of something from John Petrucci, being the mad-lad shredder that he is. I remember discovering him through an old video… Continue reading

Kalmah – Hades | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen Studios again, ripping through another cover of the melodic death metal variety. This time we’re doing a bit of a deep dive into some lesser-known Finnish stuff, a little tune called Hades from a group by the name of Kalmah! I don’t know what it is, but those Nordic countries have a certain affinity for the crazy melodic extremely heavy shreddy stuff. Must have something to do with… Continue reading

Lamb Of God – Insurrection | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone. I’m gonna keep this short today. Like straight up copy and paste most of the text from the YouTube description kind of short. Been dealing with some personal stuff. If you know, you know. We’re ripping through another Lamb Of God cover today, this time it’s Insurrection off their 2012 album Resolution. I have to say, out of all the albums that I’ve given the chance to listen to, this one has quite… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Sky Charmer | GUITAR PLAYTHROUGH

Hey everyone! We’re kicking it at Okzygen as always, in the midst of this years RPM Project. It’s still a bit early to tell how things are going, but songs are getting written, ideas are getting trashed, strings be vibrating (possibly in more dimensions than we can comprehend), and at the very least, noise is being created. Even though we’re elbow deep in the creation of this weird, thing, we can’t just not have a… Continue reading

Behemoth – Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! I’m sitting here in the studio working through this years RPM project, when it occurred to me that there’s some unused videos kicking around. And today of all days is a great day to drop this little Behemoth cover of Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel! For you see, today marks the 10th anniversary of their 2014 album The Satanist. This album took a bit to really digest, and I remember not being very impressed… Continue reading

Cannibal Corpse – Hammer Smashed Face | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’ve been doing lots of the metal stuff these last few weeks. And this week is no exception. In fact, we’re doubling down on the extremes and going full blown Cannibal Corpse with their tune Hammer Smashed Face! A song I’ve wanted to learn for ages but just never really got around to it. It’s one of those songs I don’t see myself ever playing live or even jamming with a group, so… Continue reading

Lamb Of God – Beating On Death’s Door | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a bit since we’ve done a Lamb Of God cover, so I figured it was time to bring out another one of their tunes. This time we’re ripping through Beating On Death’s Door, and it’s kind of a funny/stupid reason why. Of course the song itself is bloody fantastic, written by Adler instead of Morton so it’s got more proggy elements to it, and that main riff is such a… Continue reading

Revocation – The Hive | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re gonna be ripping through some more metal today here at Okzygen, so I hope you’re ready to rage with Revocation! This time we’re tackling the opening track from their self-titled release, The Hive, and I’ve gotta say I haven’t had this much struggle learning a tune since doing the Necrophagist cover a few months back. There’s so much going on with the hands in this song, and once that breakdown riff kicks… Continue reading

Tool – Lateralus | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’ve scraped our way to the end of another bloody week (hopefully not literally) and can finally enjoy the weekend! Also it’s a Friday so I need to post another video. But not just any video. No no, this is a cover video. And not just any cover video, but Tool‘s Lateralus. So I hope you’re ready for some recreational math, because this song is chock full of references to the Fibonacci Sequence,… Continue reading
