Pallbearer's Cover of Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell" Might Be Better Than the Original?

"A good rule of thumb for covers is don't do them — unless you are either 1) completely revamping the song and giving it a different feel and sound, or 2) improving on the original. Pallbearer has definitely achieved No. 1, and only time will tell if Pallbearer have done No. 2, but we'll be damned if they aren't pretty close."

"The Arkansas crew have taken on the Pink Floyd favorite "Run Like Hell," one of the highlights of 1979's The Wall, and given it their own riffy feel, bringing the classic-rock staple into the now. Instead of David Gilmour's simple reverb-heavy guitar lick, the melodic-doom quartet opts for a chugging, churning approach, leaning heavily on the gallop that exists in the original and bringing it to the forefront. And don't worry, there are plenty of Pallbearer-isms to spare, from the soaring guitars to the masterful vocals. Stream it below, but crank it to almost painful volume first — you'll thank us later." - Revolver Magazine
