Watch Soul Glo Cover System Of A Down’s “Soil”


Philly hardcore punk outfit Soul Glo recently took to covering System Of A Down‘s early cut “Soil“. The group put their own stamp on that track, which appeared on System Of A Down‘s 2x multi-platinum 1998 debut album. Soul Glo‘s version emerges via Sounds Of Saving & 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline‘s ‘Song That Found Me At The Right Time’ series.

Soul Glo said in a statement alongside the cover:

“To be honest with you, art is the only thing that keeps my desire to be here – the next project. Being able to see the world through any given person’s eyes on, out of the 6 billion people that exist here, the fact that nobody is exactly the same. It’s one of the consistently unfolding beauties of life that really makes worth sticking around for. Everybody has their reason for continuing and I guess art is mine.”

Should you not be interested in what Soul Glo themselves have to say, the actual cover itself begins at roughly 4 minutes in.
