Playing Creed With Blast Beats Makes Creed Better
Creed aren’t known for their heaviness. Having their arms wide open? Sure. Making personal sacrifices? Of course. But injecting a bulldozing dose of metal into their nu-grunge American rock? Not so much.
Well, that is until drummer Samus Paulicelli came along! Posting one of his Twitch streams on Instagram, the Decrepit Birth drummer (and YouTube extraordinaire) has a play along to Creed’s 1999 rock ballad Higher… and makes it heavyyyyyy.
Sure, it only lasts a couple of seconds, but adding what Samus calls the Dirk Blast (in reference to ex-Soilwork, current Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren) makes the cheesy soft-grunge worth listening to. Albeit briefly.
Hopefully Samus will post a full cover with blast beats and tom-busting fills soon.
Creed frontman Scott Stapp will make his feature film debut as Frank Sinatra in Reagan, due out next year.
Tomahawk have released a NSFW video for Dog Eat Dog that is also “served up with a healthy dose of slapstick humour”.
