London's progressive metal thrashers Biomechanical have placed online an advance preview of their Judas Priest cover track Painkiller, which they recorded last week with the original Judas Priest producer Chris Tsangarides at the production helm. Their cover of one of metal's all-time standout cuts is now available on Mp3 for fans to preview online here.

The cover of the legendary ‘Painkiller’ was recorded over three days with the track’s original producer Tsangarides, at his own studio in Dover, UK.Singer John K from Biomechanical recently spoke about his appreciation of the track, which has featured as a highlight of the band's set for some time, stating: “When the song was first introduced to the scene in 1990 it blew everything out of the water, it was an instant classic and sure withstood the test of time. We’re really glad to be able to do homage to the original”.

You can take a look at a pic of the band with Chris Tsangardies in the studio here.

‘Painkiller’ will be released by Earache on a limited edition re-dux of Biomechanical’s second album ‘The Empires Of The Worlds’, which will also include 3 bonus Quicktime Videos including behind the scenes footage of the band in the studio and on location filming their promo clip last year.
