I've heard the name, but nothing by them - to be honest, I am truely sceptical, I ahte metal, I consider The Smiths to be somewhat of the antithesis to it as a band and everything. Besides, I once heard a metal version of How Soon Is Now, I can't remember by whom - it was sickening. So basicly I prefer not to hear such things.

RG, I too hate heavy metal music but go to that site & have a listen to it, it's so funny it's almost listenable.

I can't stop chuckling, excellent find HM cheers.

OK,
I'll give it a try when I can.

Aye, I knew they'd been mentioned before on here, but couldn't think where. They surely deserve a thread though, I actually think they are really interesting.

lol ive had an idea... you know how they combine smiths and sabbath song titles? (e.g. how sweet is leaf, this charming acrobat, shoplifters in the void, etc) i suggest they cover smiths songs in the style of ozzy (as well as in the style of black sabbath), just so they can do a song called... frankly mr crowley!
well that was my big idea of the day. nighty night <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo-->

I really tried to open mind to them. They truly suck.
No, really, they don't deserve their own thread!

I don't think they suck. Really interesting experiment and also amusing. I'd go to their gig. <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->
