referencing Covered In Black: An Industrial Tribute To The Kings Of High Voltage AC/DC, CD, Comp, CLP 9811-2
This a fantastic album. That being said,I will admit that I am biased. It is industrial, it is a cover record(which I have a fetish for), and it's AC/DC(who doesn't love them?)
The standout track is "For Those About To Rock" by Godflesh. A punishing version drenched in distortion and sustain with mostly monotone vocals and an oddly off kilter drum pattern. Incredible
"Hell's Bell's" by Razed in Black is a close second. The classic intro is missing(but shows up later), but the riff comes crashing in in short order.
The only disappointment is "Back In Black" by Pigface vs Sheep on Drugs. A dub treatment with a calypso backing, it is more annoying than interesting. It is completely devoid of the iconic riff that makes the original such a classic.
This is great album with broad appeal. It covers all the industrial bases. Get in the pit (It's a Long Way to the Top by Die Krupps or Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by16 Volt), get on the dance floor(Shot Down In Flames by Spahn Ranch or Thunderstruck by Birmingham 6), or get on the stripper pole(Whole Lotta Rosie).
