Right in time for Christmas, German symphonic/melodic metallers BEYOND THE BLACK gifted their fans with a really special treat: their new EP, "W:O:A Acoustic Clash - The Lockdown Session", available digitally via Napalm Records.
The "W:O:A Acoustic Clash" began as a bet between BEYOND THE BLACK and Thomas Jensen (Wacken Open Air): In the course of 48 hours, the quartet had to arrange and record acoustic cover versions of four different all-time rock and metal favorites, chosen by the Wacken community. All tracks now culminate in an extraordinary EP featuring four covers of undeniable rock and metal hits, presented in a stunning yet tranquil manner: SABATON's "To Hell And Back", DISTURBED's "Down With The Sickness", VOLBEAT's "A Warrior's Call" and IRON MAIDEN's "The Trooper". Jennifer Haben's remarkable, bold voice weaves throughout every cover version and elevates them to genuine, unique stunners. The soft, acoustic cover versions of these all-time mainstays showcase the band's musical talent while also emphasizing their soft and melodious side.
