A few weeks back I decided I wouldn’t just blog about music I like, I’d blog about any music I come across. While that time it was clearly for an inside joke, this time I’m serious. I don’t really like O’Death but I’ve listened to a half-dozen tracks and figured someone else might like it. Since music is such a subjective experience even if I didn’t care for something it doesn’t mean that you won’t love it.
That said, I discovered O’Death because they did a split 7″ album with Murder by Death. There have been a few of these 7″ splits and the idea is there are two tracks from two different bands covering songs by the other band. All these tracks can be heard over a Murder by Death’s Band Camp page and I strongly suggest checking them out.
A little different this week, I’ve included the O’Death cover of Murder by Death’s song Brother. Since this track is the only O’Death song I’ve enjoyed I figured it would be the one I shared. Also, its not on YouTube so I had to find an alternative. Before anyone complains, I do like this track but it is still fairly representative of the O’Death sound. I’m not sure why but the rest of their work just didn’t jive with me.
