Pantera and Sepultura have both been covered in very different ways recently, as British pop group Spiritwo has revealed their own rendition of the Sepultura staple "Inner Self" and violinist Rachel Barton Pine has translated the Pantera classic "Cowboys From Hell" into the world of classical music world. You can check out videos of both covers below.

"Inner Self" comed from Sepultura's breakthrough album "Beneath The Remains" which was released in 1989. The album was the bands first release which allowed them to tour outside of Brazil.

"Cowboys From Hell" comes off Pantera's 1990 album of the same name which also saw them break into the limelight and gain international recognition.

The Pantera cover was interesting... a good cover of "Domination" was done by a Finnish cello metal band called Apocalyptica. You can hear that cover on youtube as well as many other covers from a few other bands (mostly Metallica)

Cowboys From Hell was previously covered with violins back in 93' - 95' I think. It's on the "3 Vulgar Videos From Hell" DVD

"Inner Self" Cover - I literally had to tell someone if I was having a nightmare! Far Beyond Pathetic!
