it sounds good in the video, but when i saw them at download they played it and it sounded crap.

I kinda like it, the addition of harmonics etc makes it sound good but video itself is a poor attempt of humor

not a lot of point of releasing a video and promoting it, they should just stick toit be a live song, kinda like what artreyu done with bon jovis "you give love a bad name"

Hmmm. Even if I accepted your premise that those three singers are untouchable... I think there are a lot of reasons to do a cover other than trying to outsing the original singer.

I bet at least 75% of KSE's fanbase had never even heard that song before they covered it.

its hard to imagine that killswitch could possibly make their holy diver video cheesier than the original.

but they did

I own the 2 disc version as well. I agree it's hit or miss but I can't agree on the Blind Guardian cover. then again I can't stand Hansi Kursch's vocals.
