Norwegian artist, Chris Wicked, returns with a mysterious and soulful interpretation of Danzig’s heavy metal classic, “Mother”.
“We dig to put our own stamp on songs we love, and everyone in the band loves this song, so we decided to experiment with it in one of our rehearsals”, says Chris Wicked. “We took the song in a totally different direction, dark, ambient and soulful, and since we liked the result we decided to film a performance at our studio. Once in a while we will do this, just to show off some of our inspirations”, the singer adds.
Watch the performance below:
Chris Wicked is a Norwegian rock artist who after several years of touring and releasing albums with Malice In Wonderland went solo with the critically acclaimed debut album, Aleine, from 2021. Although incorporating members from Gorgoroth, Gaahl’s Wyrd, Taake, Helheim and Shining on the record, the sound was not metal – although the inspirations are clearly there – but rather a melancholic rock album.
Chris and the band are currently recording their sophomore album, and new music is expected spring 2023.
