So very cool!  Great to hear Erik singing and for me, this is 10 times better than the original.

This guy was just born to sing so hopefully we see more music from him.  Although, I'd prefer original music instead of covers.

Also, really cool seeing him work with Jona and Dave and that they are still good working in some capacity together.  It be pretty cool if we could get an Erik solo hard rock/rock/metal type album of original material with Jona/Dave helping him out sort of like Robin from Degreed is doing.

Ha, just came here to post this one myself.

I think Erik's voice is just not quite deep enough for this song.  The original has a sound of menace to it that Erik doesn't.  Still, he sounds great (of course) and does a good job on this.

Its not bad for what it is...its decent...I can respect that this guy didn't choose a "safe" song to cover .You'll find that there really isn't a whole helluva lot of singers who are even going to attempt to cover a song like this...that said I revisited  "Tyr"..."Headless Cross" and "Cross Purposes"  a few years ago...i'll say that originally I didn't give Tony Martin a fair shake...the guy is definitely in the "underrated" category...some really good stuff on CP.

The "Black Sabbath" Tony Martin era is hugely underrated. 

I love and prefer the original, but this is definitely a worthy tribute.

I'm not a Sabbath fan at all but I love this album.

More info from Erik:

I am very happy to present you to something I’ve been wanting to do for some time now. 

Some of you know that I was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year. It was the start of a life changing journey full of perspective and it guided me to the core of who I am. 

It really made me realize that making and releasing music is one of the most important things in my life and it has never been more important to me. So that’s what I’m going to do. I am very happy to present you to my version of Black Sabbath – Headless Cross. 


Headless cross has been one of the warm up songs backstage before shows for a couple of years. Is this the meanest riff ever written?

New cover of Skid Row's '18 And Life'.

From Erik:

This song was basically the starting point of my professional career as an artist. I performed this song during my Swedish Idol audition back in 2009. 12 years later it's time to give this bad boy a try again. Here's my version of the Skid Row song 18 and life.

  • Stefan changed the title to Erik Grönwall - cover songs

OK, yeah, that's A LOT better.  That's right in Erik's wheelhouse.  Heck, he could probably replace Sebastian if Skid Row ever needed a new lead singer (obviously, that situation would never happen - you get my point).

he could probably replace virtually any singer. Such a talent. Heard him cover this before of course so not that interested but great that he's sounding so good despite what he's been through

Good point.  I'd actually forgotten about his cancer.

Love Gun is just a boring cover.
Nice music, nice singing, but pretty much the same as the original.
Just change it up more and make something interesting.
I'd rather just listen to the original.
A song like Love Gun is hard to cover because it's hard to change up, but I guess that's the challenge.
If you can't do it, just move on to the next song...

I agree about covers adding a bit more to the original without reworking it to within an inch of its life.

There are a few notable exceptions of course.

Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help From my Friends" springs to mind.

This version of "Love Gun" by "Stone Sour" is great, but as CTS said, ultimately, I'd rather listen to the original.

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
