Slaughter of the Bluegrass - Blinded By Fear

Slaughter of the Bluegrass from Stockholm, Sweden, it’s a band that plays unplugged versions of death metal songs. They use traditional bluegrass instruments and arrangement ideas and try to keep the essence of each song they cover. Reminds me of Hellsongs who also do remakes off old tunes.

This is what SOTB says about the band:

People ask us why we choose to play metal songs, and we answer them that we just want to play good songs, which in this case happens to be in that particular genre. As it turned out, people who aren't used to hearing growling vocals, guitars drenched is distorsion and heavy drums, could still appreciate these compositions, only in a new form.

Slaughter of the Bluegrass is:

Peter Norlinder: Vocals, banjo, mandolin.
Dan Norman: Acoustic guitar, accordion, percussion, backing vocals.
Hannah Sundqvist: Violin, vocals.
Alexander 'Alke' Lindberg: Drums, percussion, backing vocals.
Niklas ’Nille’ Sandin: Bass, backing vocals.
Tomas Åkvik: Banjo, backing vocals.

As for today, during Metaltown i choosed to pick a song from a band that was suppose to end up a few years back but somehow is back on stage again, im not sure if i should be pissed or happy about it.
Anyway its At The Gates i’m talking about, they will play tonight at Metaltown on Red Stage at 22:00
so if you are there, have fun and tell me how it was.

So pour yourself a cup of moonshine and relax to some great music!

Todays tune ”Blinded By Fear” is originally taken from At The Gates ”Slaughter Of The Soul” and got released back in 1995, todays version is just awesome, done as a hillbilly tune, just hit play and enjoy!
