Covering Your Tracks – 5
On Gods of Thunder the more popular Kiss tracks are covered, and for the most part, done well. My favorite track from Gods is a cover of ‘I Love it Loud’ from a band whose name I cannot pronounce; Kvikksolvguttene. Their cover is pretty straight forward, but, to me anyway, better than the original. The guitars being just a tad louder, the bass being just a bit heavier, and the vague accent, all add a tinge of aggression not there in the Kiss version.
Here’s Kvikksolvguttene’s version, and again, notice the accent. Just makes the song for me.

And of course, the original.
