    Rising metalcore maestros ERRA have dropped a supermassive cover of MUSE's chaotic rager Stockholm Syndrome.
    Lifted from the deluxe version of their self-titled album due to drop on March 18th via UNFD, the cover sees ERRA take the already crushing song from MUSE's memorable 2003 record Absolution and shift it up a notch, making everything sound so much heavier, without losing the songs signature elements.  

    Watch the video for ERRA's Stockholm Syndrome below. 
     

    Keyboardist/clean vocalist Jesse Cash explains the inspiration for the cover. 

    "The first time I heard Muse's 'Stockholm Syndrome', I thought, 'This song is begging to be covered by a metal band,'" shares guitarist and clean vocalist Jesse Cash about the impetus for choosing to interpret this song. "It has aggressive riffs, soaring vocals, keyboard arpeggios, and a big ending breakdown. It has all the necessary materials to be contextualised into an ERRA song. The chromatic guitar octaves in the verses also left me a lot of room to play with some chromatic groove riffs in the style of Meshuggah. I realised as long as I maintained the root notes of those original octaves, I could kind of be as creative as I wanted during those verses. I also adjusted the original tuning from Drop D to Drop E and tuned the guitar down an entire octave to make the song low, heavy, and more akin to the range ERRA generally tunes in." 

    The expanded edition of ERRA's S/T is beefed up with seven additional tracks, including a feature from Spiritbox's Courtney LaPlante, along with three covers.  It is available for pre-order now here. 

    If listening to this got you into the mood to hear more heavy MUSE, then head on over to our list of the five heaviest MUSE songs of all time. Which includes the original Stockholm Syndrome.

    MUSE dropped the heavy, riff-driven monster Won't Stand Down in January to the delight of old-school MUSEfans everywhere. produced by MUSE and mixed by Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari). It is an arena-ready anthem of chaos with heavy guitars and industrial-like distortions amplifying Matt Bellamy's striking lyrics about taking the power back. It even features a breakdown and some screams, which is enough to excite both the inner metalhead and the inner Muse maniac in us all.  Arriving accompanied by a sinister sci-fi video, directed by award-winning filmmaker Jared Hogan (girl in redJoji)  Won't Stand Down is set to eviscerate stadiums worldwide in the near future.
