One of my all-time 80's disco favorites has never had a bass line... And I think it's very unfair! So I did one :) As in come of my earlier covers, I wasn't sure if it's authentic or not, I just recorded something that as I felt was right for this song. At the same time, I have no idea why nobody has ever made a metal cover for it... I mean just listen to this chorus – it was born to be a power metal hit! I'm starting to approach the dark side and believe the classic power metal has been born...

My previous cover for Babymetal's “Headbangggggeeeeerrrrr!!!!!” was received so well that I just went ahead and made another one – for “Meta Taro”. At first it sounds like a very simple fantasy “marching” type of a song, but let me assure you it's not as simple as it seems. At least you have to be super precise when playing it (I wouldn't say I've managed to do so for 100% hehe) and it can be a great tempo exercise in case you prefer to practice with the real songs. All in all...

Europe has been THE band which brought me to the rock music back in 1986. Back then all my friends had their “The Final Countdown” album (on the bootleg cassettes, obviously) and everybody played the hell out of it, no matter what was their personal music taste before that, rock, disco, rap, shmap – all my generation has learned to headbang and play their very own air guitars with that album! It was so huge, it was an instant living classic on the spot! And you know what, I'm still a big...

I've never been a Ghost fan, but this song is definitely good. Not that I realized it right away though... rather when they started to play it on the local rock radio like every f***ing 30 minutes! That's when I got it was catchy enough to make me hum its melody even in my sleep. Well, there was the only way to fix it – by making a cover!

“The Carpenter” is one of those very early Nightwish songs that I cannot stop loving, even though I'm way more into the late band's stuff (starting from “Nemo”). Still, it's a very nice song... maybe too simple, maybe naive, maybe poorly recorded and produced, but I still find it very appealing somehow. I'm not going to say it was hard to learn and play, but “The Carpenter” definitely has its moments :)

It's one of those songs literally everybody knows, an anthem of 80's new wave generation! Unfortunately, it has never had any bass line (except for a low keyboards part) so I had to come up with my own part which (as I dare to hope) doesn't suck. Enjoy!

Guilty, I love Babymetal, I love this band very very much and seriously think it's a prefect modern metal project which generally leaves any other modern metal bands far behind. So far Babymetal has released 2 albums and I can't name even one single song from them that wouldn't be very good. The new singles “Distortion” and “Starlight” (R.I.P. Mikio Fujioka) are great too, so I assume these guys just cannot make bad or boring songs. Anyway, I've always wanted to make a Babymetal song...

Another tribute to my childhood? Definitely :) The first W.A.S.P. record was one of the first rock albums I've heard back when I was 13 or 14 years old. I didn't know anything about the band back then, but the songs were so raw and awesome that I couldn't stop listening to them! “I Wanna Be Somebody”, “L.O.V.E. Machine”, “Sleeping In The Fire”, “On Your Knees”... basically the whole album was a charger full of deadly heavy metal bullets and I still listen to it once in a while....

It's time for one of my favorite KISS songs ever. Man, how I love it and its bass part! Crazy and raw KISS power melted together with the music genius of Bob Ezrin... Some might think it's a tribute to the fact that KISS is currently on their final tour and stuff, but no, it isn't since – guilty – I'm one of those die-hard fans who can't stand the current band's line-up and don't want to support it, no matter if they're lip-syncing or not. It's rather a new tribute to the favorite music of...

My Dying Bride is one of my most favorite bands when it comes to the doom/funeral metal. Actually this band has a weird influence on me – I actually listen to it when I feel sad and... suddenly I start feeling a lot better and even enthusiastic! Of course I've always wanted to play something by MDB and finally I chose the first song from their latest album “Feel The Misery” which I love dearly. Great album and the song “And My Father Left Forever” is one of its best jewels. Nice bass...
