I am in love with Pink Floyd, and there’s a good chance you are too. Let’s listen to a few heavy metal covers of classic Pink Floyd songs, and discuss some of the things that make Pink Floyd one of the best bands…

Between the Buried and Me – “Us and Them”

BTBAM, a band known for throwing every element at the wall to see what sticks (case in point, “Swim to the Moon” features a gym-whistle) does a good job of keeping this song simple. Although the guitars are a little too crunchy, they leave well enough alone with the saxophone and keyboard sections. All in all, it’s a pretty faithful rendition of the song. Having said that, there’s absolutely no reason to listen to this over the original. 3/5.


Shadows Fall – “Welcome to the Machine”

Don’t worry, “Welcome to the Machine” has not been ruined here, regardless of how you feel about Shadows Fall! Instantly you’ll notice the addition of drums, and take it from this die-hard Pink Floyd Fan: it works. Nothing fancy was added, just a simple drum beat that somehow doesn’t detract from the original. What also works: that additional vocal harmony added over each “Welcome” in the chorus, in fact it’s quite beautiful. Shadows Fall made the right move not to interfere with the gorgeous acoustic guitar riffing in the background, so good on them. 4/5.


Voivod – “Astronomy Domine”

This is straight-up Voidvod playing their version of the classic song, all ingredients being filtered through their brand of spacey thrash metal. If I didn’t know this song was a cover, I never would have guessed. I think that by interpreting the song as they saw fit, taking tasteful liberties whilst being respectful all the way, Voivod have succeeded in making a great cover. 5/5.


Foo Fighters – “Have a Cigar”

When Floyd wanted to rock, they accomplished said task with aplomb. Take “One of These Days” or “Have a Cigar”, for example, here covered by the saviors of rock and roll the Foo Fighters. Just like everything Dave Grohl touches in this world, it’s absolutely impeccable. In fact, I’m willing to venture that this version is BETTER than the original. I wish Dave Grohl and Co. would cover more bands! 10/5.


1349 – “Set the Controls For the Heart of the Sun”

A modern band that I adore covering a classic band that I adore, for their one-off noise/ambient album Revelations of the Black Flame. 666.


Crippled Black Phoenix – “Echoes Pt. 1”

If Crippled Black Phoenix is new to you, please refrain from researching; as I will be introducing them soon enough… For now, enjoy their rendition of Echoes Pt. 1. What you should notice is their attempt at reproducing the song with as little tinkering as possible (aside from adding a few samples here and there). It’s impressive how well the band pulls off this performance, matching things like tempo and guitar tone, to the original. But I can also appreciate how the vocals were approached: male and female together in harmony instead of two males (Gilmour and Wright). This fine example of a cover song really highlights one special attribute about the works of Pink Floyd: their long songs were the exact length that they had to be. The band excelled in meticulously creating long, epic works of art without resorting to adding filler. Oh, and I would rate this cover an easy 5/5.

Are there any great heavy metal covers of Pink Floyd songs that I’ve omitted? (Spare me the Kittie and Korn links, I left those out for a reason.) Do any of these covers caress your feels? Does Pink Floyd suck? Sound off in the comments!

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Voivod is the best one.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      That fucking riff.

      Les Claypool: Frog Brigade Floyd covers are great, its a 2 album set…

      • in between Limp Bizkit albums, lolhue

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          lolbutz, huehuehue, ayyyyyyo, dank and all that too

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    I love Pink Floyd! My favorite thing they did is when Roger Waters did a performance of The Wall at the Berlin Wall. Scorpions did covers of both portions of In The Flesh there.

  • Boss the Turbid Ross

    I find your lack of Les Claypool disturbing.

  • Dubs

    I enjoy Primus’ cover of “Have a Cigar.”

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Yes!

    • sweetooth0

      was gonna mention this also

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Where is Geoff Tate’s cover of Comfortably Numb assisted by DT? It was on The Art Of Live

    • Dubs

      Geoff Tate

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Please no

    • Where are Geoff Tate and Dream Theater? I would guess on a completely different metal blog.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        They’re still metal. I hate Dream Theater but I have to admit that was a good cover that they did.

    • Dubs

      We can see when you self-upvote or self-like.

  • COAL ROLL

    Dream Theater butchered DSotM

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I agree. That was an awful cover.

  • COAL ROLL

    EDIT: I’m an idoit

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      That was already on there.

  • Vladimir Poutine

    Nice article, McNulty! Floyd’s one of the very few bands I’ve been listening to for as long as I can remember. I never really checked whether metal covers had been done or not, though. Looks like I have some catching up to do.

    • Dubs
      • Vladimir Poutine

        *smashes own head through brick wall in response*

        • Vladimir Poutine

          Ahh. Stahp.

        • Dubs

          I didn’t know Godsmack did a cover.

          • Apparently so. Goddamn.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I didn’t know either. I wish it would’ve stayed that way.

          • I like to deliver the hearing AIDS. Hehe.

          • BobLoblaw

            As generic as they are everything is a cover.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Fukk.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Crime against humanity #2

        • can you imagine all the BDubz Bro’s at a live Godsmack show holding up their lighters to this song?
          *sheds tear* … it’s beautiful

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            After which they beat each other up for shedding a tear of course.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Crime against humanity #1

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        Upvote for major trolling.

      • nbm02ss

        Wait. I’m confounded by that disclaimer. There are people who actually think the Korn version tops the original?! //boggle

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I like this cover.

        • Yeah, you would bro.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It’s better than any Pink Floyd covet Kittie apparently did.

          • cov·et

            verb

            yearn to possess or have (something)

    • more beer

      It is kind of hard to improve on the originals in this case.

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        Damn near impossible.

        • more beer

          Agreed!

      • praise Grohl

        • more beer

          By praise, you mean punch in the face?

          • you get a pass, just this once, because i know you’re a good guy. or i’m just hallucinating.

          • more beer

            Hallucinating is good. I have no love for Grohl.

      • Vladimir Poutine

        Touche.

  • Treebeard, Father of Fangorn
    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Oh great and wise tree of Fangorn, how i dream of walking beside you listening to the mighty Pink Floyd

  • Waynecro

    I never really got into Pink Floyd. Yeah, I know. I’m awful.

    • never too late to start!

      • Waynecro

        Well, I’ve heard and appreciate the band plenty, I just can’t get into it. Not my kinda jams.

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          As long as you can respect them, it’s all good.

          • Waynecro

            Definitely. I admire Pink Floyd, but I seldom feel compelled to listen to the band.

        • what if it’s covered by KoRn?

          • Waynecro

            Dude, no. Korn makes everything worse.

    • I did that thing in college where you get high and watch The Wizard of Oz synced up to Dark Side of the Moon. About halfway through I turned off Pink Floyd and started listening to …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead instead. It synced up better for me.

      • Waynecro

        When I was in college, I was definitely more of a get-drunk-and-thrash-around-to-Decapitated kinda guy.

        • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

          Very much describes my college experience

          • I outgrew the get drunk and act like a jack ass thing by my early 20s, never was really comfortable with it.

        • From college to now, most of my friends have been heavy, heavy stoners. Never been my thing.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, man. All the dudes I played in bands with were total stoners. I never got high, and I don’t plan to. It just ain’t my thing.

          • BobLoblaw

            You cant say something isnt your thing if you “never have never will” duuuuude.

          • Waynecro

            That’s exactly what Flamenco, the Just-Say-No Dingo, told us the pushers and drug stoners would say to trick us! I need an adult! I need an adult!

          • more beer

            Don’t trust those just say no take a bite out of crime furies. look..http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/8/mcgruff-crime-dog-actor-sentenced-16-years-prison/

          • Waynecro

            I remember reading about that. It’s pretty funny.

          • more beer

            It is very funny.

      • Spear

        The campus theater here tried that once. Didn’t see it myself, but I had a couple of friends who walked out after the album restarted for the third time. Turns out 43 minutes of music doesn’t quite sync up to 101 minutes of movie.

      • RJA

        I haven’t followed …And You Will Know Us for a long time – but I did put Source Tags and Codes (is that what it’s called?) on a few months ago and it sounded pretty fucking good to me.

        • I LOVE everything they’ve done up to “So Divided”. From there, it’s all been heavily disappointing to me.
          EDIT: Although the Guided By Voices cover on that album is p good.

        • Dubs

          I’ll differ with Joe and say that I really enjoyed Tao of the Dead.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Not the type of name a crowd can chant at a concert

  • Guppusmaximus

    Oh, come on now! I know you guys think Dream Theater is just cheesy, weedily-deedily music but they played ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ in its entirety LIVE… Yes, it is awesome
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUoUim7WGwo

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Nothing made by Dream Theater is awesome.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I agree.

      • Guppusmaximus

        That sounds about right.
        Inb4 someone states whether or not Tapirs can hear nothing…

      • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

        Dream Tapir.

        • more beer

          Sung to the tune of Cheap Tricks Dream Police.

          • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

            Only weedlie weedlies can calm the wild soul of the tapir.

          • more beer

            Who says I was trying to calm his wild soul? I figured that would make him an angrier Tapir. All stabby and shit!

          • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

            My shitty Paint thing made Petrucci look like he slipped on a Tapir mask out of Slipknot’s dumpster, lol.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      I like a few Dream Theater albums. Images & Words, Awake, Scenes from a Memory, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, Train of Thought and Black Clouds and Silver Linings are solid albums imo.

    • RJA

      I would imagine Phish may get the same kind of scorn but they too covered DSotM in its entirety. It was pretty decent.

      • Guppusmaximus

        Yea, but I don’t think they are considered Metal and, no offense, I don’t think it would surprise anyone that they covered PF as Floyd are their forte as well as The Grateful Dead. Speaking of “non-metal” bands covering PF – Jazz Side of the Moon is phenomenal…

        • RJA

          Yea, I guess I looked directly pass the metal aspect!
          and no, certainly not surprising but as is the case with Dream Theater, quite the undertaking.

        • OldMetalHead

          I also have a London Philharmonic Pink Floyd album.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            That is good shit.

    • aside from making fun of The Astonishing, i don’t have a strong feeling about DT. will listen!

  • I tried with Pink Floyd several times, with Wish You Were Here, Animals, Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall. Didn’t clicked. I always wanted to like them, so much, and never could have the opportunity to enjoy it like fans and “supposed music snobs” do.

    I dig some songs, but my experience with Pink Floyd was kinda indifferent.

    Overall, good writing, Jimbo Macñulti.

    • if you’re feeling antsy, give this song a shot (for @tyler_gearhart:disqus!)

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          right?

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            That song and specifically that performance is what sent me down the path of my Pink Floyd obsession.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            awesome…

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Yes! Also when Gilmour rips into that solo.

      • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

        I remember watching the VHS of this back in high school. Especially that version of “Edward Put Down That Axe”.

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

  • Boss the Turbid Ross

    NOT Heavy Metal, but if you haven’t heard Dub Side of the Moon, give it a listen. It’s not dubstep, it’s dub music.

    Time to play my trump card, if I can find it on the Tube ov You…
    (opens another tab, drinks it…opens another tab on laptop…)

    Yep, there it is:

    • Dubs

      I wasn’t aware of this. Good show, Max.

      • Max

        Originally it was only included on the vinyl release of the album – which was a boxed set of blue vinyls that were 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″ and 9″. Nowadays, of course, it’s included on the CD reissue.

    • Waynecro

      That’s more my kind of jam for sure!

    • Shit, I totally forgot about this. It’s on the bonus piece of wax on side C. I just took a picture of it.

      http://i.imgur.com/O44UFj9.jpg

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        Hahaha, of course you have it!

      • Max

        There it is. The Celtic Frost cover is good too – in fact I even like it better than the original, if you’ll excuse the heresy.

  • Max

    Not everything the Floyd did was great in my opinion, but some of their stuff was either monolithically heavy or just really evocative. “Arnold Layne” is one of the few ’60s hits I can get into. “Echoes” is monumental. “Money” is cool. “One of These Days” is almost an acid rock version of death metal before its time (don’t ask me how I figure that).

    A band truly worthy of their place in history, despite the usual critical derision (but hey, the critics were also right about Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, weren’t they?)

    • Max

      Pondering it further, Pink Floyd’s also the first rock band I heard where I got a sense that you were allowed to “spread out” your music beyond the 3-minute pop format (although as a 12 year-old, I would never have even used the term “3-minute pop format”).

      My older brother went through a massive Pink Floyd phase at the time – that’s where I picked up on a lot of it. Much of it left me cold, but the stuff I liked, I really did. I think Dave Gilmour must be the most “heavy metal” non-heavy metal guitar player there is. You can tell that if he was in a metal band with a KK Downing-type shredder as the second lead guitarist, the fanbase would probably be split 50/50 on who they preferred.

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        As a HUGE fan of Gilmour, I very much enjoy your assessment of him.

    • then there’s also the “wut” songs like “Atom Heart Mother Suite” and “Alan’s Psychedelic Breakfast” — both of which i’m a huge fan tho

      • Max

        Yeah, they almost got into ambient/early industrial territory sometimes. Plus concept albums, multimedia stage-shows, psychodelic pop songs, doom metal (sorta), yacht rock….there’s a helluva lot of scope in Pink Floyd.

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        ATOM HEART MOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RJA

    I’ve hit refresh a few times – is there a jar that I can put a quarter in or something?

    • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

      You bastard.

  • JWEG

    Another version of Echoes, by Syrophenikan (melodic black metal). I wanted to include the YouTube version, but it looks like all his YT stuff was taken down.

      HOLYSHITYESGIVEMEMORE!

      • JWEG

        I dragged that one up from deep recesses of my memory (and iTunes download history). It’s a doom & sludge compilation tribute to Syd Barrett. Got it back when I was (a) definitely into Pink Floyd but (b) just getting back into Metal, and not yet into doom or its microgenres.

        It’s weird the number of names I now see on the track list that I recognize now, but didn’t at all then (Kylesa, Intronaut, Giant Squid, Yakuza, Jesu, Pentagram…).

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          Yeah, I looked that one up, I will have to give the whole thing a listen.

    • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

      One of Chicago’s finest!

      • Óðinn

        Fuck yeah!. Yakuza, underrated band.

        • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

          Definite! My best friend got me into them years ago, and sadly missed their shows.

    • Óðinn

      Yes!

    • holy flush, my buddy has that CD in his car at all times. didn’t even realize!

  • Boss the Turbid Ross

    I can dig all these covers, I’m fairly lenient on Floyd covers, but that Voivod is the best one.
    BTBAM surprised me, i didn’t know if i was going to like it or not, but it was pretty good. And Crippled Black Phoenix knocked it out of the park!

  • JWEG

    Oh, hey. Speaking of Voivod, Pink Floyd, and what I would have expected to be a much more frequently metallized tune:

  • Betty White’s Chewy Booger
    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      This is cool, you don’t normally hear a lot of Obscured by Clouds covers

      • Betty White’s Chewy Booger
        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          They like their early Floyd, don’t they?

          • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

            Yep! A Deeper Kind Of Slumber had tons of obvious PF influence, as well as Wildhoney. After that, they pretty much became a Sisters Of Mercy and Mission UK tribute band, though.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            I guess i’ll have to check those out.

          • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

            ADKOS is in my opinion their absolute best one. Still some of the weirdest and best lyrics ever written.

  • OldMetalHead

    Pink Floyd has got to be one of the most universally loved bands ever. I had the good fortune to see them in 1994 – sadly it was without Waters.

    Any time I wear the shirt I bought from that concert, people come up and ask about it. The interesting thing is the age range – teens to seniors.

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      and that is the magic of Pink Floyd.

    • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

      They laid the groundwork for so many genres, from rock to prog to ambient and beyond. They have a distinct sound, but no two albums were exactly alike.

    • I don’t think they were ever loved by “The Punk&Hardcore Crowd™.”

      It was always funny listening to people in the nineties who said things like “I’m punk!” parrot shit that the British bands from ’77 said. Those bands crapped on “the hippy bands” all the time, when it was their time, out of adolescent rebellion. I always found it amusing to hear the supposedly-nonconformist clones of the nineties just say the same shit Johnny Rotten said.

      • OldMetalHead

        I suppose you’re right about that. I don’t remember any mohawks or straight edge asking me about PF, but it’s still amazing the diversity of people attracted to a Pink Floyd shirt.

  • Betty White’s Chewy Booger
  • OldMetalHead

    This one is pretty good. https://youtu.be/G6WQv9GwwbM

  • Trevor A Tree

    I would’ve added Voivod’s cover of The Nile Song as well

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Welcome!
      See below!

  • Warheart

    Where is Anathema? They play some PF songs in their live shows.

    But the cover they have recorded in studio is this, almost Pink Floyd, ALMOST.

      How far are you in the series?

      • Half way through season 8. Still watching the new episodes though.

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          Right on, almost there. It’s a good show, this is my second time watching it.

      • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

        Fringe >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The X Files

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          They’re both good shows, but i don’t know if Fringe ranks that much higher. Though I’m glad to know you enjoy it.

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

            Fringe does definitely owe a bit to X Files, no doubt.

          • And they both owe it all to Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            That and Twilight Zone.

          • Rod Serling is the God Emperor of weird TV.
            However, he was also a master of social commentary. Here is my favorite non sci-fi movie of his that proves my point.

      So a crappy metalcore band covered a song off The Division Bell? I do not like Floyd post-Waters. The live albums are an exception.

    • …Ellipsis…

      Oh, and the Power Metal version…

        Look down a few comments. I put up the Nightwish one, with their Abba cover band singer.

    Also, why don’t bands cover songs off Animals? I’d love to hear a metal band cover Pigs (3 Different Ones) or Dogs.

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Not exactly metal but Les Claypool covers the full album, see below.

      That guy is an imposter. This guy was the real voice of them.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mel_Blanc

      • Betty White’s Chewy Booger

        Nope. Blancs did Bugs and Porky. I know my slapstick comedy!

          Melvin Jerome “Mel” Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice actor and comic actor. Although he began his sixty-plus-year career performing in radio, Blanc is best remembered for his work with Warner Bros. as the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E. Coyote, the Tasmanian Devil and many of the other characters from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoon short films; produced during the golden age of American animation.[1]

            Damn you, I’m going with the TMZ article. Oh, shit…………….

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Alaskey voiced some of them after Blanc died.

            And they never sounded quite right after Mr. Blanc.

            Exactly.

            Yea there is a credible source.

            Nyeah!
            BTW, My SNAP ends after this month, sadly. So we gotta get myself by the bootstraps, since there’s a nationwide 3 month limit now (it’s been that way in VA for years now, so no biggie on my part). Tell em how that is, Craig and Repubs:

          • I’ve always thought that was a great “foot in the mouth” moment.
            I guess the 3 month limit thing doesn’t apply to disabled people.

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

            Talked to Joe about writing an article for this one, but my old friends Lahka Muza (I used to promote them back in the day) are trying to crowdfund a new DVD. To give you an idea:

    Metal Pink Floyd? But my birthday is in June.

    • more beer

      Mine too. A summertime birthday is a good thing.

      • Eliza

        Yep! There are much more things you can do than in any other season.

        • more beer

          It certainly sucks to try and barbecue and party in my yard with a foot of snow on the ground. Like there is right now.

          • Eliza

            Be happy that at least you have snow.

          • more beer

            We’ve had a lot of snow this year. I am ready for spring.

      • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

        Mine’s on St. Patrick’s Day. I’m gonna be an old fart on the day they paint the Chicago River green, you know, to offset the usual vomit color it has the rest of the day. And everyone gets to act like my numbnutted, hardheaded, drunken brethren, lol!

    Can’t believe I missed this yesterday. Wish You Were Here is one of my favorite Floyd albums because of some great memories.

  • Unfortunately only bits and pieces of this seem to be available on DM and YT. (KQED San Francisco 1970)
