Metal Insider Top Five: Mellow Covers Of Metal Songs

Posted by on March 11, 2013

1. Ryan Adams, “Holy Diver” (Dio cover)


Ryan Adams could probably release at least an EP of his acoustic renditions of metal songs. He’s done Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Danzig, Ratt and probably a handful of more we aren’t even aware about. However, our favorite from the alt country singer/songwriter may be his take on Dio’s “Holy Diver.” Though he’s covered the song a few times, he performed this particular stripped down version at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. on February 17. And we’re still amazed at how well he transformed Ronnie James Dio’s classic metal anthem.
