Welcome back! It’s time to announce results for the Oct. 15th BOTB post
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Series and StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.
It was difficult to find covers that weren’t pale imitations of the original, so I wandered into other genres. These two were the most interesting and diverse, which makes for a good battle, but I knew some of you wouldn’t like the music. It’s impossible to please everyone, but it’s good to represent different musical styles. I might even delve into classical, in future.
For the first while, it was going back and forth, but then Sanctuary pulled ahead and stayed there. It seems, more of you preferred (or found least annoying) metal to punk.
Both versions had great intros; Sanctuary’s growling “Alice is on drugs again” and Slapshot’s drums. After that, my ears preferred Sanctuary’s vocals and overall arrangement. I didn’t like Slapshot’s increase in tempo and the vocals kept changing, which was somewhat annoying. My vote doesn’t make a difference, as Sanctuary was already far ahead.
AND THE WINNER IS:
This is another battle I thought would be closer.
Here’s the winner once more, in a live performance:
