Exclusive Track Premiere: Mutoid Man’s “Mutation Breakdown”

0

Last week, the mighty Mutoid Man announced a three-part series of cover tunes, starting with a totally righteous cover of Tom Jones’ “She’s a Lady” (re-christened “She’s a Mutoid Lady,” natch). Today, MetalSucks is SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED to be premiering the second entry in the series, a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” dubbed “Mutation Breakdown.”

They probably should have called it “Mutation Fix-up,” though, ’cause there ain’t nuthin’ broken down about this mutation. Mutoid Man have taken the framework of Led Zep’s original classic and turned it into a raucous explosion of heavy metal madness. The results sound like the world’s best garage band actively trying to destroy said garage; it feels modern and relevant and fresh while maintaining respect for its forefather. We love it, and we’re confident you will, too.

Do yourself a solid and check out Mutoid Man’s “Mutation Breakdown” below! It was originally recorded live and mixed by Jeff Filmer at Long Island City’s Best Rehearsal in 2015, and it was mastered by Drew Arndt at BMG NYC. And don’t forget — Mutoid Man kick off their next tour of the U.S. and Canada this coming Sunday, March 6! These guys put on a live show you have to see to believe, so make sure you don’t miss ’em! Dates are at the bottom of this post!!!
