After nearly 18 months in the works, Magnetic Eye’s massive dual-release homage to Pink Floyd, THE WALL [REDUX] and BEST OF PINK FLOYD, is nearly here.
Entering the final ramp-up to the release, we’re ecstatic to present the exclusive worldwide premier of PALLBEARER’S galloping, Maiden-esque take on the iconic Floyd classic, “Run Like Hell,” which debuted via Revolver Magazine and is available now on Spotify and Bandcamp.
Discussing their choice of classic rock radio staple "Run Like Hell," Pallbearer says:
"We were excited to take on RLH because it would give us the opportunity to totally subvert the notion that we would end up doing something obvious. The song is already kind of outside of the realm of our already-Floyd-indebted style. It was different for them, so it gave us a chance to really think outside the box."
And on their up-tempo, almost early-Maiden-esque rendition, they add:
"Our initial inspiration on how to approach it actually came from watching as many early live performances of it as we could find. We found that all of them were really vicious sounding, and a bit unhinged. They just felt off the rails, so we decided to just go full steam in that direction."
