Неожиданный кавер на The Cure от Behemoth

BEHEMOTH перепели хит THE CURE. И не только они

29 мая у Нергала и его подельников выходит новый ЕР A Forest. На сингле четыре композиции: две версии кавера культовой группы THE CURE A Forest и две эксклюзивные песни, записанные во время работы над ILYAYD (предыдущим альбомом команды). Релиз будет доступен на кассетах, компакт-дисках и четырех(!) видах винила. Заказать артефакты можно здесь.

Послушать кавер на THE CURE можно прямо сейчас (и посмотреть классный клип – у BEHEMOTH все клипы классные).

Как вы можете видеть, кроме Нергала в клипе снимается Niklas Kvarforth, лидер легендарной black metal группы SHINING. На этой версии песни он еще и поет. Вторая версия композиции на сингле записана “живьем” на концерте.

Эй, редактор, а чего ты решил про black metal написать, журнал ведь не про такую музыку? Согласен, я про митол пишу редко. Ну а выход нового клипа BEHEMOTH – это повод поговорить о песне A Forest, которая по какой-то причине очень популярна у музыкантов самых разных стилей.

Специально для вас я собрал на YouTube самые интересные кавера на этот хит THE CURE. Итак, погнали.

Начинаем с авторской версии, чтобы было с чем сравнить все остальное. Итак, THE CURE и их песня A Forest в оригинальном исполнии.

Акустическая версия композиции в исполнении THE CURE.

Если вы смотрите сериал Westworld, то автор его звуковой дорожки Ramin Djawadi (тот самый, который и музыку к Игре Престолов писал) не обошел стороной A Forest.

Кавер на песню от легендарной black metal команды CARPATHIAN FOREST.

А так эта песня звучит, когда ее исполняет doom metal команда ALUNAH.

Отличный кавер от финов WALTARI.

Ну а вот так звучит эта песня в стиле пост-хардкор у 20 SECONDS FALLING MAN.

Еще ортодоксального митола от Kòciss.

А так видят песню британцы CREAMING JESUS.

А вот как песню исполнили THE CLAN OF XYMOX.

А если кому-то не хватало ЕВМ, то есть и ЕВМ-версия песни от MARI CHROME.

Электронная версия песни авторства Paul Hartnoll (ORBITAL) с дебютного альбома его проекта 8:58.

Интересный кавер от венесуэльской команды METROZUBDIVISION.

Неплохая версия с женским вокалом от BAT FOR LASHES.

Еще одна отличная версия песни с женским вокалом от Jess Mills. Пишут, что этот кавер понравился даже автору – Роберту Смиту, лидеру THE CURE.

А здесь песню перепели итальянки из I’M NOT A BLONDE.

Бодренькое прочтение шлягера от AFTER DARK.

Еще вам женского вокала, на этот раз от Frankie Rose.

А вот клубная версия хита от OF NORWAY.

И если вам еще не надоело слушать одну и ту же песню – версия A Forest на укулеле.

На этом у меня все. В сети можно найти десятки (если не сотни) каверов на A Forest от разных групп из разных стран, но мне кажется, я собрал самые интересные из них. Если вам нравится какой-то из каверов, не попавших в наш список, – делитесь в комментариях, мы с удовольствием его послушаем.

Behemoth have unveiled a cover of The Cure classic “A Forest” that will appear on an upcoming EP of the same name. The extreme metal band’s crushing take on the gothic track features guest vocals by Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth.

The EP, A Forest, arrives on May 29th and features the studio cover of the Cure song, as well as a live version recorded during a December 2018 show in Behemoth’s home country of Poland. In addition, the EP contains two new original Behemoth songs — “Shadows ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha” and “Evoerecording” — that are described by frontman Nergal as a continuation of the band’s 2018 album I Loved You at Your Darkest.

The rendition of “A Forest” features Kvarforth delivering the verses while Nergal chimes in with guttural screams, adding brutality to what is one of The Cure’s most atmospheric and ominous songs. An accompanying music video is as dark as the cover itself, depicting Nergal and Kvarforth in the woods as they engage in some ritualistic behavior.

Nergal stated the following about the challenges of covering a song by an iconic act like The Cure:

“Covering music outside of metal is a challenge — covering legendary music is an even greater challenge … that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail; subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favorite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke’s ‘Total Invasion’ and Siekiera’s ‘Ludzie Wschodu’.

For the second time in 2020, I’ve recruited Niklas Kvarforth from Shining. Niklas’ psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original.

On top of this, the A Forest EP contains two brand-new Behemoth songs, ‘Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha’ and ‘Evoe’. The tracks act as a continuation on from ‘ILYAYD’ – no more, no less. We hope this brings some respite for anyone struggling during these strange times on our planet! Stay safe, stay positive, Hail Satan!”

Earlier this year, Nergal released a new album from his dark-folk side project, Me and That Man, plus he’s working on music for a new Behemoth album. As he told us in a recent interview, he plans to hit the studio with Behemoth later this year.

Listen to Behemoth’s twisted cover of The Cure’s goth classic A Forest

Behemoth enlist Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth for atmospheric black metal cover of The Cure’s 80s goth landmark A Forest from new EP

Behemoth have released a brand new cover of The Cure’s early 80s goth classic A Forest featuring vocals from Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth.

The song appears on the Polish band’s new EP, also titled A Forest, which is released on May 29.

Says Behemoth frontman Nergal of the song: “Covering music outside of metal is a challenge covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail; subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favourite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke’s Total Invasion and Siekiera’s Ludzie Wschodu.”

The song’s video, directed by Claudio Marino, features Nergal and Kvaforth performing the song in an eerie wood.

Of Kvaforth‘s contribution, Nergal says: “Niklas’ psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original.”

The new EP also features two new Behemoth songs, Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha and Evoe.

Nergal explains: “The tracks act as a continuation on from [Behemoth’s current album] I Loved You At Your Darkest – no more, no less. We hope this brings some respite for anyone struggling during these strange times on our planet! Stay safe, stay positive, Hail Satan!”

The A Forest EP is released on May 29 and available to pre-order now.

Behemoth Cover The Cure’s ‘A Forest’ on New EP, Enlist Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth in Video

Behemoth’s sound continues to evolve and on the soon-to-come EP, A Forest, it comes by way of a cover of The Cure’s song from which that title is taken. For the track and the chilling music video that has just been released, comes a guest appearance from Shining frontman Niklas Kvaforth.

Expectedly, Behemoth’s take is not a simple recreation of The Cure’s classic Seventeen Seconds song, which was originally released in 1980. There’s a blackened atmosphere that enshrouds an otherwise bubbly bass line that propels the track and the vocal tradeoffs between Nergal’s gravely bellow and Kvarforth’s gasping croaks are sublimely evil.

«Covering music outside of metal is a challenge covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail,» reflected Nergal. Pointing to previous successes in Behemoth’s career in this area, he added, «Subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favourite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke’s ‘Total Invasion’ and Siekiera’s ‘Ludzie Wschodu.'»

Of Kvaforth’s disturbing presence in the song and woodland video, directed by Claudio Marino, Nergal enthused, «Niklas’ psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original.»

«The tracks act as a continuation on from I Loved You At Your Darkest – no more, no less,» said the Behemoth frontman of the band’s election of covering The Cure, and, in closing, Nergal exclaimed, «We hope this brings some respite for anyone struggling during these strange times on our planet! Stay safe, stay positive, Hail Satan!»
