Earlier this week, Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries died. In the wake of her passing, news came out that she was schedule to record a cover of her band's famous song "Zombie" with the band Bad Wolves. For those not in the know. Bad Wolves is comprised of ex-members of God Forbid, Divine Heresy and Devildriver.
Well today, Bad Wolves have released the cover and will be donating all proceeds from the song to O'Riordan's children; which is a classy move.
The cover doesn't reinvent the wheel but definitely adds some heaviness to a song already overflowing with lyrical weight. It does justice to the original while pushing the song in a slightly new direction.
Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
