Threshold Posts New Song, Cover of Muse's "Supermassive Black Hole," Online

British progressive metal band THRESHOLD has released a brand new digital single of the MUSE cover "Supermassive Black Hole." The song can be heard on the band's MySpace page.

Richard West comments, "'Supermassive Black Hole' was such a huge hit for MUSE, it's become a modern classic and it's still in the top ten of the UK rock charts after 150 weeks! I hope MUSE enjoy THRESHOLD's reworking of their song, we've stayed fairly true to the original but with some added THRESHOLD heaviness."

The band will also re-issue their latest effort "Dead Reckoning" including instrumental versions of all songs of the album as a bonus - the digital release of the package is scheduled for mid February.

West states, "We often get requests from fans wanting access to instrumental versions of our songs, so after seeing bands like NIGHTWISH and MASTODON release extended versions of their albums with instrumentals included, it seemed logical for THRESHOLD to do the same with "Dead Reckoning". So whether they're being used for karoake competitions, holiday video soundtracks or just for singing along in the shower, we're happy to make them available."
