The theatrical Swedish metal band Ghost B.C. have already shown that they have a way with the incongruous cover song; we posted their version of Abba’s “I’m A Marionette” back in January. And apparently, the Japanese version of their new album Infestissumam includes a cover of Depeche Mode’s gloomy 1990 synth ballad “Waiting For The Night” — which, it turns out, already has-kinda-metal lyrics, and which can be turned into a crunchy metal track without altering the music too much. Listen to the Ghost B.C. version below.
Infestissumam is out now on Loma Vista.
