Metal Hammer recently paid tribute to the glorious career of AC/DC with a covermount CD of AC/DC tracks covered by more contemporary artists. Amongst those were our very own MUTINY WITHIN, who recorded a cover of the infamous track ‘Highway To Hell’.
“We are really happy with the way this came out!” commented AJ Jacobs (bass), “Metal Hammer asked us to cover an AC/DC song, and having never recorded a cover before, we wanted to rise to the challenge and put our spin on an old classic.”
“AJ continues, “While obviously familiar with the song, it was still difficult to try and pick out everything that is going on. The bass lines have little tricks throughout, the vocal parts are sung in a very particular way, and we even noticed a slight tapping on the high hat pedal in the intro. After getting it all straight, we went into the song with two minds: We did the beginning as it was, even using the same Gibson SG that Angus Young used, and then we developed it into our style as the song progressed. We hope everybody enjoys the cover, we had a lot of fun with this!”
For those of you who missed the Metal Hammer issue which featured the track, we have it streaming in the player below. Keep an eye out for those Metal Hammer covermounts- they do indeed contain some right treats!
