To commemorate one of Rock N’ Roll’s most iconic legends, Powerwolf celebrates the 75th birthday of Alice Cooper by debuting their own cover of the rock classic “Poison“. The 1989 hit, off Cooper’s powerful Thrash album was been heard by music fans across the globe. Having been covered numerous times, it’s no surprise that Powerwolf would take a turn, adding their own trademark sound to the classic tune.
Powerwolf on the cover:
“Over the years we have released several cover songs to pay tribute to artists / bands that we personally hold in high regard. With “Poison”, Alice Cooper has created a timeless classic and we could not miss the opportunity to celebrate his 75th birthday (on February 4) with our own version.“
The classic intro rings in, guitars unchanged as a distant melody grows. Upon first listen, I was skeptical but Powerwolf adds the right amount of flare to an already fantastic track, easily making it one of my favourite covers – EVER. They keep vocals on the forefront, ramping up the guitars with finesse of flashy keys without over-stepping. It’s heavier and melodic but, just as vocally strong and catchy as ever. If you don’t catch yourself singing along by the second line, you should hit ‘repeat’ and try again because this cover is FLAWLESS.
