Cover vs. Original

Holy Diver


I like them both a lot but I heard the original first, so it sounds way better to me than the cover.

Killswitch Engage's cover is better, the additional pinch harmonics thrown in add a little extra kick to the song and the solo sounds better. The vocals are more powerful compared to Dio's which is the main ammo for Killswitch Engage's cover when comparing it to Dio's. Even for those who don't like screaming should appreciate the strong vocals that exist in the song. so EAT IT SPEN-SORE

Dio's version is an all time Metal classic... The new version is good, but Dio's better.

If Howard didn't scream that part, it would have sounded so much better.
"Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel"
So much better if he sang it because he actually has a pretty badass voice

DIO!! I can't believe the comments, i love Killswitch but the cover of this song was horrible. They messed up the solo, and it...oh it just didnt work. Better luck next time. two thumbs down for kse, two up for Dio.
