Welcome back! It’s time to announce results for the Jan. 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.
Firstly, apologies for posting so late. Time just got away from me!
I thought it would be fun to present vastly different genres of a metal song and threw in the original for even more contrast. While searching for covers, I stumbled upon the Iron Horse bluegrass version, prepared to dislike it, as I’m not a big fan of that style. Imagine my surprise when I not only liked it but even considered voting for it. Me – the consummate Metallica fan! Many of you expressed similar sentiments and so, this became a close battle. For the record, I did vote for Metallica in the end, which made it a tie. I just love their music too much! (Sorry, Stephen 😉 ) A last minute vote from Guilie gave them the slimmest of victories. Poor old Pat didn’t fare so well. Honestly, I was wincing throughout his recording. 😛 A few of you liked him though and he did get a couple of votes, much to my surprise. Vive la différence! 😀
AND THE WINNER IS:
By one single vote!
What a squeaker!
Here’s the winner once more, in a live performance:
Since it was a close battle and Iron Horse is such a great find,
here’s a playlist for your listening pleasure:
