Metal Stars Unite on Epic Orchestral Sounding Depeche Mode Cover
There are certain non-metal bands that just have that darkness that still attracts those in the metal world and Depeche Mode often tops that list. During the pandemic, metal producer-songwriter Libra sought to pay homage to the recently minted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers by covering one of their songs and inviting other Depeche Mode loving metallers to take part. The result is an epic, orchestral sounding take on the track "It Doesn't Matter Two."
As can be seen in the video, the pandemic didn't dampen the passion to take part as this cover turned into a global collaboration with musicians chipping in from around the world. In addition to Libra, who sings and plays drums on the cover, this collective features My Dying Bride’s Shaun MacGowan and vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe, Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen, vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen, Paradise Lost's Aaron Aedy, Moonspell’s Don Aires Pereira, Type O Negative and Silvertomb’s Kenny Hickey, Athanasia and former Five Finger Death Punch member Caleb Bingham and Within Temptation’s Ruud Jolie.
