Wild Throne is pretty cool and their music is solid and quite enjoyable, therefore, they can branch out a little bit from their style to try something different and expect some decent results. That’s what the Washington trio did when they visited the A.V. Club offices and covered Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson’s “Say Say Say” with just enough twist to make it a good song to jam any day.
We love The Onion, and their ‘A.V. Undercover’ series has presented some interesting covers like Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn covered Europe or Punch Brothers covered The Strokes, but the list still contains more metal tracks waiting to be performed by someone like Slayer’s “Raining Blood” or any GWAR track. That would be interesting to see from some odd-ball band completely unrelated to metal. Wild Throne’w Roadrunner Records debut, Harvest of Darkness comes out October 2nd.
