Athens based rockers Motherfaster have shared two new tracks via Youtube. Both being covers the band have done a version of Fleetwood Mac’s The Green Manalishi and Ennio Morricone’s For A Few Dollars More
Tha band comments:
Lockdown has its perks! We motherfasterised “The green Manalishi (With the two pronged crown)”. The song was originally written and performed by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac and also covered very successfuly by the METAL GODS Judas Priest. At first glance, it seems the song is about a weird love story, but it’s actually about the evil ways of money and how it can affect someone’s personality. We recorded the drums for this song back in 2016 (along with “Blood is thicker than water”), but did nothing with it. We took advantage of the extra time we have these days and recorded guitars, bass and vocals in our home studio. Mr. George Emmanuel mixed and mastered it and here we go!
The guys have created a heavier version of the Fleetwood Mac classic, with some psyched up vocals and dirty guitar tone beefing up the riffs. It’s a faithful copy of the original which still sounds as awesome as it did when it was sung by Peter Green and this may be my favourite cover of the track.
