Watch Code Orange, Baroness, Year of the Knife mems & more cover PanteraAmanda HatfieldPublished: March 2, 2021
It's been a couple of months since we've had a new edition of heavy metal talk show Two Minutes to Late Night's all-star quarantine cover series, but they've returned with a new one, their thirty-sixth. This time it's a cover of Pantera's "Mouth for War," featuring Halestorm's Lzzy Hale on vocals, Code Orange's Reba Meyers and Baroness' Gina Gleason on guitar, Year of the Knife's Madi Watkins on bass, Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die, Mutoid Man, Killer Be Killed) on drums, and Gwarsenio Hall, aka Jordan Olds, on guitar, vocals, and hosting.
"Gina told us that she and Reba wanted to cover Pantera so we covered the crap out of Pantera," they write. "Our boy Ben Koller killed it dead as usual but also a huge thanks to Madi Watkins of Year of the Knife for bringin' a monstrous tone on an anime ice cream bass and to Lzzy Hale of Halestorm for annihilating these vocals and holding that high note in the bridge for like 7 minutes. Also, all the patreon fees from this cover will be donated to Dallas Hope Charities Transitional Living Center. Fuck Ted Cruz." Watch it below.
