Cover Vs. Original: The Weight Of Silence Covers “Shutterbugg” by Big Boi of Outkast!

Australian metalcore quartet The Weight Of Silence has released their new rap cover from Big Boi‘s (Outkast) single “Shutterbugg” with a new music video.

Vocalist, Jacob Pedersen commented on why the band choose this cover saying, “We’ve been quite influenced by hip-hop whilst writing the the new record and we decided that, a classic hip-hop cover would be the perfect bridge or transition into the newer sound we’re writing. We’re very excited about the release of “Shutterbugg” but, what’s to come soon after is what we’re most excited for.”

While the band proves their love for hip-hop, they also claim a new shift in their modern metalcore sound, incorporating a range of styles from hip-hop to deathcore, which hints at a new direction for their upcoming sophomore release.

About The Weight Of Silence:

Australian Hip-hop influenced Metalcore outfit The Weight Of Silence formed in the small beach town of San Remo in 2012, by founding member Benny Ehmke and ex-members. The band has always brought a raw metalcore sound to all Australian major cities as they’ve toured extensively over the years, and recently with the release of debut LP ‘Sickness Unknown’. Since releasing their debut record, Benny found himself working with an all new lineup of band members. New members Jacob Pedersen (frontman) & Nic Courtney (drums) have brought a whole new influence and direction to The Weight Of Silence as the band take a hiphop influenced approach to their newest material. The brand new single ‘Shutterbugg feat. Hunt The Dinosaur’ is a cover by OutKast’s own ‘Big Boi’, this track has demonstrated the newest direction for the Aussie lads. They have promised their new sound and style will be seen and heard in the very near future of 2017.
