Death Metal Band Covers Torrini’s “Jungle Drum”

German death metal band Nero’s Revenge have made their own version of Icelandic singer-songwriter Emilíana Torrini’s “Jungle Drum” following the song’s success in their home country where it topped the charts for eight weeks.

The Munich-based band is part of a new wave of Bavarian heavy metal and, according to Morgunbladid, the soft beat of the jungle drum is a “little” heavier in the metal cover.

The song first reached popularity in Germany because it was played on the reality television show Germany’s Next Top Model.

No other Icelandic musician has made it to the top of a singles charts list in a market of that size before, let alone stayed there for eight weeks.

The death metal version of “Jungle Drum” can be listened to on YouTube.
