Polyphia Post Shreddy Cover of 9mm Parabellum Bullet‘s “Inferno”


For a bunch of guys who hate guitar music and only listen to rap, Polyphia sure know their way around the shredboard, eh?

The band have posted a cover of 9mm Parabellum Bullet’s “Inferno,” the opening theme for the 2016 anime, Berserk. The track originally appeared as a bonus track on the Japanese version of Polyphia’s 2017 EP, The Most Hated, but is now available online in an officially capacity for the first time.

I’m not familiar with the original — which I’ll post below for reference — but this cover slaps hard enough, so sure, why not… even if it was recorded by a bunch of rap-loving, guitar-hating jabronis ;)
