Hear Abiotic, Suicide Silence & Job For A Cowboy Members Cover Toto’s “Africa”


Toto‘s 8x multi-platinum 1982 hit single “Africa” has been given a new metal reworking by members of Suicide Silence, Abiotic and Job For A Cowboy. Abiotic guitarist John Matos oversaw the cover, which also features Suicide Silence vocalist Eddie Hermida and Job For A Cowboy drummer Mike Caputo.

Matos offered:

“I’ve had the dream of making an extreme metal version of ‘Africa‘ for a long time and I was so stoked to join forces with Eddie (Suicide Silence) and Mike (JFAC live) to make it happen. It’s heavy, crushing, melodic, shreddy, and still carries all the elements of the original. We’ll be paying homage with a music video that is a fever dream version of the original. I’m looking forward to doing more covers like these and joining forces with more of my favorite musicians!”
