Guitarist Ol Drake of British thrashers EVILE has written and arranged a heavy version of the Lady Gaga‘s hit “The Edge Of Glory”. The resulting track, which — according to Ol Drake — represents how “The Edge Of Glory” “might have sounded if IRON MAIDEN had written it with [the pop singer]” — can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. Ol added, “I’m a fan of MAIDEN and a fan of Gaga; this is an experiment and all in good fun. If you don’t like it don’t listen to it.”
Ol Drake previously gave a similar makeover to Lady Gaga‘s song “Born This Way”.
EVILE will release its third album, “Five Serpents’ Teeth”, on September 26 via Earache Records. The CD was recorded at Parlour Studios in Kettering, U.K., with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR), who also worked on the band’s previous CD, 2009’s “Infected Nations”.
