Single Bullet Theory Covers Metal Church
Band Photo: Testament (?)
Philly's Single Bullet Theory have posted a Metal Church cover of "Badlands" on their MySpace page. The cover was originally featured on their 2004 release, "Behind Eyes Of Hatred." The song also features guests James Murphy, of Testament, Death, and Obituary fame and Matt Thompson of King Diamond fame.
Guitarist/lead vocalist Matt DiFabio discusses the cover:
"I remember being 14 when the METAL CHURCH 'Blessing In Disguise' [album] came out. I remember I bought three cassettes that day... METAL CHURCH 'Blessing In Disguise', 'BADLANDS' self-titled and 'DANGEROUS TOYS' self-titled. All three cassettes were great! I remember how amped up METAL CHURCH made me feel... Back then I hadn't become acquainted with real 'heavy' stuff yet but I still hold that 'Blessing In Disguise' record as a true classic metal gem... I remember telling the guys in SBT we were gonna do a cover of 'Badlands' and only Mez (SEVEN WITCHES) knew what the fuck I was even talking about... Pathetic… [Laughs] The owner of Crash didn't really get why we tracked that as a cover... I hope all you classic METAL CHURCH fans understand why we did it.
"SBT always been more influenced by 'classic' metal. We lean a lot heavier but there still is a huge part of us that are huge W.A.S.P., METAL CHURCH and PRIEST fans... The new record, 'Divine Ways Of Chaos', is gonna bring out what those bands meant to us."
