Doom Metal Band Covers Nirvana


Last January, Swedish doom metallists Witchcraft issued their latest album, Nucleus (via Nuclear Blast Records). But shortly before, the trio issued a preview single, “The Outcast.” Why would this be of interest to faithful Alternative Nation readers? Because the b-side is an unlikely cover – “Been A Son” by Nirvana.

With yours truly being a longtime grunge appreciator (click this for the proof) and recently interviewing Witchcraft’s singer, Magnus Pelander, for the BraveWords site, I couldn’t resist asking about their Nirvana cover and if he was a fan of Cobain and company. His response? “It’s one of those things I rather let speak for itself.”

OK then, we will let you listen and be the judge…
