Watch Mastodon, Municipal Waste, Mutoid Man, Dethklok mems cover King Diamond
Two Minutes To Late Night usually does its quarantine punk covers series on Monday, but -- keeping with the Halloween theme they've been sticking through for all of October -- they've got one more today, on the eve of Halloween. It's a cover of King Diamond's "No Presents For Christmas" with Mastodon's Brann Dailor, Dethklok/Galaktikon's Brendon Small, Municipal Waste's Dave Witte (also of tons of other bands), Mutoid Man's Nick Cageao, and as always, your corpse-painted host Gwarsenio Hall. "Happy Halloween/Christmas/Channukah!" they write. "We covered King Diamond with Brendon Small (Metalocalypse! Galaktikon! HOME MOVIES!) but it was Brann's idea." They also work in heavy metal covers of a few Christmas classic songs, naturally. Watch below.
