Disclaimer: I never listen to Death Metal. But I will listen to Death Metal if a band covers shitty Pop music in that style. So without further adieu, I give you, Unholy Quest, and their EP of covers titled Death Pop.
Taylor Swift, Jessie J (whoever the fuck, that is), Bruno Mars, and Iggy Azalea, get the royal kick in the teeth from this Internet project. That’s right, the songs were created via the Internet.
Think: crowdsourcing, but in a Death Metal-y way.
Unholy Quest has no less than 15 members, scattered all across the universe (I really don’t know where they are but it sounds pretty impressive). Speaking of impressive, how are these dudes getting everyone on a schedule to get shit recorded, I can’t even get four people into a room without a court order…
To the music.
Why you should listen:
Because any time one of these stupid pop stars getting a pie in the face, especially from a Death Metal band, well, yeah.
What you should listen for:
Well, um, it’s Death Metal, so there’s a lot of growl/singing, which is totally awesome, and it’s a lot of fun to sing along with the lyrics (I mean, once you look them up…).
What they sound like:
They sound exactly like each of these pop stars screaming, locked in a darkened room somewhere in a Black Op camp, while forced to listen to their crappy music.
Perfect listening for:
Smashing each of these artist’s records.
My favorite part:
The “Intro”. It is the perfect commentary on the whole, “Don’t you know who I am?”-pop-star culture. Good for these guys.
