NO EFF YOU
I was going to cover this, dangit Schleif, why do you have to be better and faster at eveything than me!? D:<
Haha, just joking, I figured it was matter of time before you covered a good 'ol Jusdas Priest song.
Well, you sure as hell took this thing into your own style, you took this thing spun it upside down, smacked it around and claimed it as your own. And that's cool, this sounds like a modern adaptation of Breaking the Law, and I like it.
I like how you took a style that you approached Mercenary with, doing a clean, soft intro and then rocking the hell out of it. I recognised the tune, but that was the only thing that was similar, you took the same notes but presented them in a different way, then BAM, instant Schlief-mode.
I like the pattern you used on the drums, I probably figure it out if I wasn't lazy, but I'm useless when it comes to really technical stuff. Anyway, it works well here, in my opinon. I really like it.
You sped up the song and made it full of all sorts of other nuances, I think that makes this bad boy much more interesting, but you used some digital sounding leads with some harmonization. I don't know if I agree with it, but I can't see how it hurts at all. It makes this cover sound more digitat, as compared to the original more analog-sounding song.
I think the rhythm riffs you used may be the same, but you must have done something different with them, a different octave perhaps? Maybe, some of them sound nastier, and I like that. You do conflict between two lines going on at the same time really well. Especially towards the end.
You do so many things to make this your own, I think this is really cool, I'll show this around to all of my buddies who like Judas Priest.
Oh by the way, I love how you did the main tune on the drums, that was clever, you're more musically capable than you let on.
Keep rocking, my Swedish friend.
