RUN TO THE HILLS! IN THIS MOMENT IGNORE OUR ADVICE, CONTINUE TO COVER CLASSIC METAL TRACKS
Less than a year ago I took it upon myself to tell the members of In This Moment that they really, seriously, no fucking around, needed to stop covering classic metal tracks. At the time, they’d already created lackluster versions of Slayer’s “Postmortem” and Pantera’s “I’m Broken,” and I’d like to think I wasn’t alone when I said “Enough is enough.”
Unfortunately, In This Moment really doesn’t give a fuck what I think, and I didn’t have the will power not to watch this:
At this point, it seems fairly clear to me that no power in the world can stop In This Moment from continuing to rape metal gems of the past for their own insidious purposes. I’d ask the Talking Metal dudes to please please please stop egging ITM on, but once you’ve appeared on television in a long sleeve nu-GN’R shirt butchering Maiden, you’re clearly at the point where nothing short of a full-scale intervention will do anything to sway you.
So I guess the only solution is for me to stop being such a glutton for punishment and just ignore it when In This Moment unleash their next cover upon the world. I can only hope that the destruction said cover does to our culture is minimal at best.
