For triple j‘s Like A Version, In Hearts Wake have released a very dynamic and surprising cover of Parkway Drive’s “controversial” single, ‘Vice Grip‘.
This rendition from the young Byron Bay metalcore outift of the, er, other Byron Bay metalcore outfit’s single, fits much more with one of In Hearts Wake older songs, namely ‘Inertia (The Hermit)‘, which came from their debut album, ‘Divination‘. So, in short, no guitar chugs, no breakdowns, and no screams, whatsoever.
This cover also brings to mind the same thoughts when Dead Letter Circus pulled off that acoustic cover ‘Killing In The Name‘ not too long ago: unexpected and very cool.
In related news, the band will play Unify 2016.
Give this cover a spin below.
