Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.
This morning’s cover song comes from a Chicago-based guitarist named Rob Scallon, who played a ukulele cover version Slayer‘s “War Ensemble”, which is the opening track from the legendary thrash metal band’s 1990 classic album Seasons in the Abyss. You can check out both versions of “War Ensemble” below.
