Steve Von Till with Neurosis at Maryland Deathfest 2011 (more by BBG)
Steve Von Till

As discussed previously, three titans of metal have combined forces for the unlikely cause of a tribute album. Wino (Saint Vitus, The Obsessed, many more), Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till (both of Neurosis) all tackle Songs of Townes Van Zandt, a collection of covers available via Neurot Recordings now. Stream Scott Kelly's rendition of "St. John, the Gambler" as well as Steve Von Till's "Black Crow Blues" below, the latter of which is making its first public appearance here.

In related news, Wino & Conny Ochs released their Heavy Kingdom LP earlier this year (stream it) and the pair will hit the road in the US for a string of dates. Look for the pair to hit Saint Vitus on August 22nd, tickets are on sale.

A listing of all Wino/Conny Ochs dates are below, along with streams and the Songs of Townes Van Zandt tracklisting.

I think everyone will agree and scream in unison: "YTIN.ASNIL > this giant, steaming-hot, pile of garbage."

Damn! This dude literally posts about YTIN.ASNIL on every single post!

Great people capitalizing doing metal esque covers of Townes Van Zandt. The originals are just fine by themselves.

It's not "that dude," it's all of us. YTINAS.NIL is the meaning of life. Praise him. Just because ESPN stopped 24/7 YTIN.ASNIL, doesn't mean his devotees will go away. All hail YTINAS.NIL. He is our only savior. Honor his name and repent before it's too late.

Sorry 2:28 but I refuse to praise an Asiatic. They fuck eels and eat fetuses...not my kind of people. Plus YTINAS.NIL lives in a condo in White Plains, NY. Nothing insane about that...pretty white bread actually.

YTIN.ASNIL lives in David Lee's old condo. Pretty LINSANE.
