Derek’s Note: Since it’s around The Brother’s birthday, I asked him to give us a Metal Tuesday Update.

I thought for this guest post I would bring something different.

Hellsongs is a band that re-works classic metal songs into a folk-ish singer/songwriter style. Their best album (in my opinion) is their first, Songs in the Key of 666.

Their renditions of The Trooper (by Iron Maiden) and Seasons in the Abyss (by Slayer) are so very, very, good.
