DON’T EVEN STEP TO THE PIANO
Yesterday a little fight broke out in the comments section of our bit on the mysteries of Andrew W.K., and not that a little fight breaking out in our comments section is unusual, but this fight wasn’t really about Andrew W.K. – it was about the piano, which AWK plays.
And the piano is awesome. There should be doubt of this. Good pianists should be respected, even if the phrase “good pianist” sounds kinda funny.
As if to prove this point for us, Maniac “musicalsnob” posted a link to a YouTube user going by the handle “vkgoeswild.” She does some pretty rad piano covers of metal songs. Check out her take on Carcass’ “Corporal Jigsore Quandar,” for example:
After the jump, check out vkgoeswild as she does Slayer’s “Raining Blood,” and actually makes Marilyn Manson sound pretty.
Here’s “Raining Blood”…
…and, holy shit, Marilyn Manson’s “Coma Black” is suddenly a beautiful Broadway ballad:
Not too shabby, eh?
Apparently Ms. goeswild is now taking requests. If anyone puts one in and she actually does it, let us know.
