The Most Bizarre Cover of “Paranoid” Ever?

Norwegian solo artist the Commander-in-Chief has released a version of Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” that would take many more blog posts than this (maybe even in alternate dimensions) to describe. Give this a listen and let us know what you think off it. Is it awesome or insane?

    this sucks asshole

  • Hvymtlpoet

    I don’t know why people are bad mouthing this cover. first of all covers are other people’s interpretation of the song. second, the ones hating it prolly don’t even play an instrument and are narrow minded twerps. whats the sense of doing a cover if you’re just gonna re-hash the original?

  • http://twitter.com/gogmagogical gogmagogical

    How is the “bizarre?”  Not to my liking but not exactly a polka.

    I’m sorry, but even though it is a new take on the music, and it has some “originality” value, it completly destroys the mood of the song, and it just has an all around bad sound (to my likings)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000665660695 Kendra Fry

    That whispering in the background is just…wtf (in a good way). I like the original more of course but its pretty chill to see a completely original cover

  • Trust_in_yass

    What are you guys ? Not one single comment to say that she’s hot ? That’s what’s bizarre !

  • T18

    she is very sexy.

    The name of this chick is more bizarre than the cover.

    she is a gimmick. sorry folks. all she seems to do is pose and have promo images. when it comes down to the meat and bones though, she is just about average.

  • Jake_144

    Yeah it’s a kick as cover & i enjoy the newer riffs & different interpretations but whatever cuz she’s smoking hot kids!!!!!!!! Whoa Yeah! Dime would be proud i think!

    • Gmetal4life

      How dare you!!!!!!!!!poser.

  • gass

    very original take on that old song,great potential !

  • Guest

    Sounds good…but is she even the one playing?  People do “solo” careers all the time where they’ve got other people playing for them.  As far as we know, she’s only doing the singing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/S.Inflicted Kevin McKinney

      We??? Don’t drag the rest of us into this.

    I like this.  I’m glad I put a “Like” on her Facebook page—I think she’ll be one to watch!

  • Caveman

    It’s crazy, very Norwegian, very METAL. I’d like to hear more.

    she needs tits …

  • Mikebryant

    Its funny how this comments are different from blabbermouth, i kind of agree with them,this version is bad, the solo  amateurish, and i say this because she claims to be a shredder and she is not , poor technique is reflected ,guitar players will know this , next time, CIC sell without the lies , name dropping means nothing when you can’t do the deed. in other words,learn how to shred before claiming you do. nuff said by the way,who is playing the solo in battle of the minds? because it is not you.

    • Jdc2941

      I think  Great expectations solo ,you can hear Ramon’s style against hers (it is very obvious the difference ) uncredited of course , I met them in LA at the dragonfly , they seem like nice people ,her mom is the manager,  and is funny how she address  her as the CIC .

      • Mikebryant

        So,the mother is mgr, now it makes sense (Interview ” I live with my Mgr”) , so it is not the CIC fault, does she have a name? I personally like the old look , simpler songs , then this fiasco uff. thanks for the insight, Ramon?

  • Mikebryant

    My brutal Adrenalin-fueled version of Black Sabbath’s super-hit
    PARANOID has been praised by independent radio DJs as “one of the best
    covers ever made”. common CIC are you for real? this kind of self praise is what is going to get you in trouble

  • Jdc2941

    It funny, she  is doing biz as usual , amen to that ,persistence . but delusional, “my song paranoid gets great reviews and , mag in the USA are writing about it “, those are just press releases written by the CIC  , I go with the comments ,all those people are expressing what the song made them feel.

  • Jdc2941

    I got one more, She landed lucrative endorsements !!!! as far as i know,Ibanez,and Seymour Duncan don’t pay their endorsers, only sell them stuff at discount . the deception goes a long way , trying to keep up  with it is the tough part. face it, the song was killed by the CIC.

  • jason

     love how she plays her axes its a keeper nice song

    As her full time manager  for more than 3 years I am the only one who knows the extent of The Commander In Chief’s incredible hard work and many talents. I do not expect everyone in the world to like what she does, but nobody can question her hard work, courage, skills and many unique talents When it comes to the accusations about her NOT playing guitars on her recordings I have one comment: we have a legal system that handles shit like that! If anyone feels the need to continue to spread stories like that about her I will take every possible legal step to hold that person accountable for those lies. This will be the only comment from her team on this matter.
