The post Contestant slays Lamb of God’s “Ghost Walking” on Germany’s The Voice: Watch appeared first on Consequence of Sound.
If you need video evidence that heavy metal is gaining some traction in the mainstream as the fastest growing music genre, look no further than Germany’s The Voice. Contestant Stefanie Stuber’s performance of Lamb of God’s “Ghost Walking” last week won the approval of all four judges.
When Stuber busted into Randy Blythe’s signature growl for the song’s opening verses, it befuddled the judges at first as they collectively threw their hands up in disbelief.
Stuber’s vocal performance — as well as a surprisingly crushing rendition from the house band (usually pretty bland on these type of shows) — eventually brought all four judges to turn their chairs around as she nailed the clean vocal parts, as well.
The heavy metal cover on singing talent shows has been a growing trend lately, ranging from the 82-year-old contestant who sang Drowning Pool’s “Bodies” on America’s Got Talent to the 10-year-old “Heavy Metal Kid” that shreds Dragonforce on Australia’s Got Talent.
Stuber’s video has already gotten half a million views on YouTube, which begs the question: What metal song will she sing in the next round? Stream her take on “Ghost Walking” below.
