Originals vs covers: Raining Blood

Originals vs covers: Raining Blood

Having alluded to my fanboy admiration for Tori Amos in the Running up That Hill installment of ‘Originals vs covers’, I suppose it comes as no surprise that she gets one of her own. To that end, we give you our originals vs covers episode for this week: Raining Blood.

Also, it gives us the chance to show that we do appreciate metal here at Red Dog Towers, following some ‘interesting debate’ after a recent originals vs covers episode!

Kerry Amos, or Tori King?

Kerry Amos, or Tori King?

The Slayer classic from the 1986 album ‘Reign In Blood’ was to become one of their live set regulars, and a fan favourite.

Raining Blood was covered by Tori Amos for her 2001 covers album Strange Little Girls after a suggestion by Justin Meldal-Johnsen that she should try some metal. Kerry King didn’t recognise his own song at first, but did send her some Slayer T-shirts.
