Australian female-fronted power metal band Divine Ascension like James Bond films enough that they decided to cover Adele’s theme song for the latest Bond flick. It’s a good move, given that Skyfall is the biggest James Bond film in the franchise’s 50-year history, and anything Adele touches turns to gold (or 10x platinum, as the case may be). Here’s what the band had to say about covering the song:
As we are all very big fans of the Bond franchise and movies and the release of the latest Bond film Skyfall is this week in Australia, we thought we’d have a bit of fun and create our own version of Adele’s song.
The band’s first album, As the Truth Appears, was released last year on Nightmare Records. Their take on the song is timely and solid, if not quite up to Andy Rehfeldt’s jazz/metal version of her hit “Rolling in the Deep.”
