Sonic Overload 11/24/14

It’s the last Monday of November (already!) and time for the annual all-covers show. I’ve got a good mix of songs that haven’t been played in the past along with some that I have to play almost every year. Any band can cover a song but it takes something extra to make it memorable. I try to stay away from covers that are a carbon copy of the original. Even if there are similarities, if it’s played with a kick-ass, go-for-broke intensity, it’s worth hearing. And there are always songs that are more obscure and not covered by multiple bands. I even snuck in a few requests this year.

Enjoy! Back to our regularly scheduled programming next week (as well as on Stench Radio this week)...

PS... after posting, I found out that the Devoid of Faith song is an original, not a cover. Oops! Still a kick-ass song...
