Haha, perhaps.

I listened to some of these earlier. Evile's was probably the best in my opinion. Some of the others were alright as well. Throwdown's singer sounds EXACTLY like Phil, it's insane.

Well, this doesn't suck at all. I mean, the same complaints will be levelled at Zakk as normal (usual solo, usual vocals), but he's done a good job.

The Machine Head one isn't as bad as I thought, and Evile, FFDP, Throwdown, Kiuas and Biohazard are all good as expected. Even Avenged Sevenfold haven't screwed up. Way heavier than I expected.

Malefice suck, Unearth and Sylosis pretty much blow too, and Chimaira's isn't as good as it should be.

Edit: I take it back about Kiuas. They fucking destroy. Awesome.

All right, I listened to them all on youtube so I figured I'd rate them.

Evile- cemetary gates does it justice. quite good

Zakk Wlyde- suicide note, part 1 his voice is weird on it. good cover, I guess, I'm not a huge fan of the original anyhow. he adds a solo which is cool

Sylosis- strength beyond strength one of the best covers on here. Very good

Kiaus- this love that was seriously some of the weirdest, and worst, shit I have ever heard

Chimaria- slaughtered solid cover. I like it

Machine head- fucking hostile ehhh, not bad I guess. kinda boring. It's not a boring song but it's a fairly boring cover. doesn't do too much for me

FFDP- a new level what do you think? hahahah. But to tell you the truth, it wasn't horrible. it definitely could've been better, though.

Unearth- sandblasted skin wow...nice. one of the best covers on the CD, without a doubt. KICK-ASS.

Biohazard- mouth for war Solid cover

This is Hell- rise I thought it would fit, having a hardcore band cover this song because it kinda has a hardcore attitude, but it didn't work. It didn't completely suck, but they're isn't anything slightly gratifying about it.

Throwdown- becoming
How convenient, having a Pantera rip-off actually cover Pantera. I can't really say whether this is a good or bad cover, all I can say is that it's basically identical to the original. Boring...

Malefice- I'm broken Hmmm....I liked it

avenged sevenfold- walk oh hell no. haha the guy is trying to sound badass but he comes off as a pussy

nonpoint- 5 minutes alone epic fail. the guy's vocals just don't work. if anything, this song should be covered with all screaming or growling...not singing.
