As it says in the title of the post, progressive deathcore band Born of Osiris have released a lyric video for their new cover song, “Science” by System of a Down. Attitudes towards this song were pretty negative around the Heavy Blog camp, and I’m pretty sure I was the only one who legitimately liked it. [Actually, I enjoyed the cover! – JR] Most of the criticism was placed around the vocals, what with System being so vocal heavy in their music, and many felt that the cover just fell short in that area. While it sort of sounds like a generic BoO song, I feel like the added value of the harsh vocal really adds a new level of seriousness to the song, and makes the message seem less silly, as opposed to the original song. Plus it just sounds entertaining to my ear holes. At least, that’s my take on it.
At any rate, you can view the video above, and you can decide for yourself if it’s a worthy cover, or a dud. Cheers.
