One of the funniest heavy metal institutions, Two Minutes to Late Night, have returned with another edition of their beloved "Bedroom Cover" series. For this installment, Jordan Olds, a.k.a. Two Minutes' corpse-painted master of ceremonies Gwarsenio Hall, enlisted members of Deftones, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Chelsea Wolfe and Cave In to configure a post-metal rendition of Björk's "Hyperballad."
Previous "Bedroom Cover" episodes have mostly involved metal and hard-rock figures covering legendary songs from that same world, but this one features a handful of heavy-hitters taking on a staple from Iceland's finest avant-pop genius. Unsurprisingly, Killswitch's Adam Dutkiewicz, Deftones' Sergio Vega, In Flames' Tanner Wayne, Chelsea Wolfe's Ben Chrisolm and Cave In/Mutoid Man member Stephen Brodsky turn this beatific dance-pop track into a bona fide post-metal jam.
It's one of the most inventive and unique covers in this already-phenomenal series, as it manages to do the song justice while also transforming it into something daring and unexpected. Check it out above via YouTube.
