ERRA Release Their Metal Cover Of Muse’s “Stockholm Syndrome”


ERRA‘s cover of Muse‘s “Stockholm Syndrome” has been released online. The progressive metalcore band’s take on the track comes from a deluxe edition of their latest self-titled album, due out March 18th on UNFD.

Guitarist/vocalist Jesse Cash commented of the cover choice:

“The first time I heard Muse‘s ‘Stockholm Syndrome‘, I thought, ‘This song is begging to be covered by a metal band. It has aggressive riffs, soaring vocals, keyboard arpeggios, and a big ending breakdown. It has all the necessary materials to be contextualized into an ERRA song.

The chromatic guitar octaves in the verses also left me a lot of room to play with some chromatic groove riffs in the style of Meshuggah. I realized as long as I maintained the root notes of those original octaves, I could kind of be as creative as I wanted during those verses. I also adjusted the original tuning from Drop D to Drop E and tuned the guitar down an entire octave to make the song low, heavy, and more akin to the range ERRA generally tunes in.”

The aforementioned cover is one of three set to grace this upcoming deluxe edition of the album. The complete list of bonus tracks set to appear after the album’s original running time shapes up as follows:

13 – “Sol Absentia
14 – “Psalm Of Sedition
15 – “Nigh To Silence
16 – “Vanish Canvas” (feat. Courtney LaPlante of Spiritbox)
17 – “Stockholm Syndrome” (Muse cover)
18 – “Light My Way” (Audioslave cover)
19 – “Heresy” (Nine Inch Nails cover)
