This Is Hell guitarist Rick Jimenez obviously likes to have a little fun in the studio. That’s why he’s posted numerous covers, under the moniker Rick Is Hell, on Soundcloud for everyone to hear. For over a month, Jimenez has posted covers from standards like Motörhead and Corrosion Of Conformity, some deeper tracks from Danzig and Black Sabbath, and even a few oddball choices like “The Book Of Right Now” by singer/harpist Joanna Newsom.
While all of his covers are pretty good (even his cover of KISS’ “Unholy” is silly but fun), it’s Jimenez’s hardcore rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that grabbed our attention. It might not be exactly what Queen fans had in mind, but his cover is pretty awesome nonetheless. Plus, we’ve heard much worse renditions of “Bohemian Rhapsody” before.
