Priests have covered Danzig‘s “Mother,” turning the classic headbanger into something a little more danceable. They explain:

This whole album (Danzig) is actually pretty sexy, something it doesn’t get enough credit for. We thought we’d tease this out a little more in our cover by re-imagining it with a ‘Let’s Dance’ era Nile-Rogers-producing-Bowie kind of glamor. Plus, what better way to subvert expectations of a Danzig song than by sprinkling it with a little disco panache? We assume this cover won’t be for everybody, but that’s the whole point of committing to creative decisions now, isn’t it?

It’s a pretty cool reinvention of a timeless (and oft-covered) song and you can check it out for yourself (via Amazon Music) below.
