Holy shit! Who is this San Di Ego band?

Ditto!

 

 

I did some Googling. They're a Slovenian band. And they don't sing in English, so if that's an issue you can stop at that one cover.

I did the same. Shame. Not singing English for me is a deal breaker, but that cover is great.

Yeah, those dudes is tight. I hope they realise that singing in their native tongue is pointless and nobody aside from their parents and neighbours care what they're doing as long as they do it, and I hope that they see the light and record an album in English. 'Cause I dig their sound for sure.

 

... and his voice is good in English. No bad accent or anything. Good hard rock voice.

Wanted to add this one, from their best record imho... not that they don't have a very solid discography but this one was supremely technical with tons of amazing guitar work.

Yes, again, I'm not posting a cover in the style of any genre we typically discuss here, but whatever. I love Philip Bailey. I love Phil Collins. And even though I love both Great Good Fine Ok and Panama Wedding, I never thought anyone could cover this tune justly. Thankfully, I was wrong.

Without vocals, the metallica one would be great, no way the dude's better than Brian Ross. And what about that riff? Where did they get it from?
CJSS also made a cover of that J. Tull song. You should check it, if you like that track.

This one's not as good as the original, of course, but its close.

 

 

This one's pretty cool.

 

 

This one's a bloody ripper.

I like the Blitzkrieg original ... I just prefer Metallica's version ... for me, Ross' best work is with Satan ;)
