Oh, i know why it sounds so bad. Its a drum machine and Lars air drums to it.
Someone just sent me this one on FB - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h2h4zIhwuM
Same vocalist from the Tool cover - she is going to be HUGE if she is marketed right. For an 11 year old (no idea how old she was in the Tool video) she's amazing.
Decent cover indeed.
Let's just hope the music industry machine doesn't try to turn her into another Miley. She has clear potential, with some guidance and direction
And not forgetting the other youngsters either. No detraction from them, it's not a perfect cover; but it's not as if it's "traditional" song either! Fair play to them
(ps, there's also a Painkiller cover - the drums are excellent, as are the guitars. But then the vocals..... I know they're only kids, but those vocals do not work!!!)
To me, it's just fun to see rather than another recorder concert of 'hot cross buns'.
Not to knock that, either -- any music in our schools nowadays is nothing short of luck. But, still...
