Burn the Priest "Kerosene" (Big Black cover)

Burn the Priest 'Kerosene' (Big Black cover)
Last month, Lamb of God announced plans to revive their old Burn the Priest moniker for a new album of cover songs in celebrating 20 years as a group. Now, they've shared another reinterpretation from the forthcoming disc.

Following their cover of Accused's "Inherit the Earth," Burn the Priest have now unveiled a cover of Big Black's "Kerosene," which you can hear in the player below.

"Big Black is a very important band to me," vocalist Randy Blythe said in a statement. "When I was 12 and first listening to punk rock, I thought all punk came from England — but then through skating, I got into Black Flag and Bad Brains."

He continued: "I soon discovered this super-smart American punk rock — very caustic, and deeply sardonic about the murky side of the human experience. That got me into Steve Albini's future bands Shellac and Rapeman — and all the noisy smart punk rock on labels like AmRep and Touch & Go. 'Kerosene' was one of their biggest songs, if they even had one. It speaks to small-town boredom."

Legion: XX arrives May 18 through Epic/Nuclear Blast and finds the band covering the likes of Bad Brains, Melvins, Ministry, Cro-Mags, Quicksand and more.
