As you may have noticed, everything about the Netflix sci-fi drama stranger things is like catnip to us, and we’ve been really giddy for the past few weeks.
Kate Bush and Metallica saw their Spotify numbers and social media mentions rise dramatically after the music they recorded in the mid-80s – Run up that hill and Puppeteer respectively – pivotal moments in the show’s soundtrack.
And now YouTuber Anthony Vincent – the ten second songs guy – threw his hat in the ring with a blanket of Run up that hillin the style of Massachusetts metalcore heroes Killswitch Engage.
In the four-minute clip, Vincent channels former vocalist Howard Jones’ singing style through raging riffs and delicate picking. While a lot of attention has been paid to the nuances that make Killswitch unique, there are no Adam D-style capes in the video. A missed open goal, there.
Watch the clip below:
In other Killswitch Engage news, the band – who released their new album Live at the Palladium last month – tentatively working on new material for their upcoming feature film before joining Lamb of God for a North American tour in the fall.
In a recent interview with Heavy, singer Jesse Leach revealed that the band may be releasing a new studio album next year.
“We haven’t really set any timelines or anything,” Leach said, “but I personally set goals for myself to do some fast, very emotional raw stuff for the demos, and then I probably take a little bit more time, once we get to the studio, to polish this up and make it sound really good Some of these demos that I’m about to send out to the guys, most people would probably laugh because they’re just me becoming crazy; I’m just trying to get the idea out quickly and then we’ll worry about re-recording it and tweaking it and making it sound Killswitch-y.”
