ONCE HUMAN Releases Studio Version Of Cover Of MACHINE HEAD's 'Davidian'
August 17, 2018
While the release of ONCE HUMAN's first-ever live album, "Stage Of Evolution", is just around the corner, the band has surprised its fans with a treat and released a studio cover version of MACHINE HEAD's "Davidian".
ONCE HUMAN guitarist Logan Mader, who was the original guitarist in MACHINE HEAD, says: "We had a lot of fun recording our cover of 'Davidian'. For me, it was very nostalgic as an original performer and co-writer of the song. We released it on our last album but only as a bonus track for the Japanese market. After receiving many messages and seeing comments from fans outside of Japan wanting to hear the song, we decided to release it worldwide so anyone can stream it or buy it now.
"[MACHINE HEAD's debut album] 'Burn My Eyes' just turned 24 years old but the album still stands up as a memorable and influential album. This is our tribute to a great band and a timeless song."
The track has been released as digital download, streaming single as well as song-stream video on YouTube.
"Stage Of Evolution" will be released on September 28 via earMUSIC. The disc was recorded during last year's U.S. tour and features songs from the "Evolution" album as well as a live version of "Davidian".
Beside singer Lauren Hart unleashing her forceful voice, the track also features guest vocals by Frédéric Leclercq of SINSAENEUM and DRAGONFORCE.
"I know it's uncommon for a band who is not headlining to record a live album," said Mader. "We were able to pull it off because today's technology and compact size of the necessary gear is a part of our everyday monitoring system. We had loads of fun on tour with DRAGONFORCE. I'm so glad we captured a nice piece of it to share with all our fans."
With the lineup rounded out by drummer Dillon Trollope, bassist Damien Rainaud, and guitarist Max Karon, everything about "Evolution" and its live counterpart "Stage Of Evolution" makes it clear that this is a band pushing itself to deliver something that truly stands apart.
