I'm playing with these guys on November 21st in Seattle! Super excited!!
I like covers to be more exact, but it depends on if you're in a rush cover band, or a band doing a rush cover. If it's a rush cover band then you want to be as exact as possible (I would use a female vocalist to make things easier), if it's a band doing a rush cover then it doesn't really matter as much.
I agree with you. In the broad spectrum of things, there's two mian categories of music, the kind that the general non music playing public likes, and the kind that musicians like. Honestly, I hate to bring this old topic up, especially on a video like this, but the general public likes metallica, musicians (guitarist especially) prefer megadeth. That's the easiest way to put it.
Very good, but being as you guys are a tribute band, I was expecting the lead (solo) to be a lot closer to the original. If you were a band that's just doing an Ozzy cover, what you did would be perfectly acceptable, but tribute bands should try to remain as close to the original as possible.
