What’s that saying again? “So nice they did it twice” – I think that is the line or something else very close to it. Whatever the exact verbiage might be, the thought I am getting at is the fact that the brand new band Bad Wolves have achieved a level of bombastic success with their cover of The Cranberries song “Zombie” that was released as a single in memory of that bands singer Dolores O’Riordan. At the point of this writing the world at large still does NOT know the cause of the singers passing which is a shame. Now the Bad Wolves version of the song was nothing less than jarring and powerful and after I listened a few times was added to the content of our website on a summary you can examine HERE. The other day the band issued an acoustic version of the track and here are my thoughts about it.
With my having offered up thoughts about the bands capabilities on the track already this one is a very simple one to speak on and my view is that it is almost like listening to a brand-new track if you get my meaning. The song is arguably the most popular one that The Cranberries ever delivered to their fans and its resonated even stronger with O’Riordan’s death. Delivering this in an acoustic fashion brings that heart and passion to the table and singer Tommy Vext holds you in his grasp for every single second of the number. The solemn vocal delivery and its acoustic guitar and piano accompaniment worked for me and might just have made this my favorite version of the song by these guys. It’s a single that I think fans of the original should take to with my highest recommendation. One must wonder which of their versions will be played on their current tour which will be bringing them to a venue near you. I discussed the tour that finds them joined by From Ashes To New and Diamante in THIS POST and with them hitting our Metal Metropolis you can be rest assured if I am there that you will be reading about it here. That’s all I have to say about this one, and you can listen to it below then order on the Amazon.com link provided
