Florence + The Machine Metal Tribute Album released


So you may be wandering …How does Florence + the Machine mixes with metal? Well, judging by Periphery’s cover of “Only If For A Night” in the video below, it can mix pretty well. It appears that Sumerian Records has gathered a bunch of bands on the label together to cover Florence + the Machine. The album has been dubbed “Sumerian Ceremonials” Florence + The Sphinx and is due out on May 15th. It mainly consists of songs from Florence + The Machine’s 2011 album, Ceremonials. Of course, one exception has been made — Stick To Your Guns have recorded “Dog Days Are Over,” because you can’t really release a Florence + The Machine tribute album and not include the band’s big breakthrough hit.

Speaking about the record, Sumerian’s co-founder Ash Avildsen commented:

“To me, ‘Ceremonials’ by Florence + the Machine is one of the most timeless records to come out in years. The distinctive vocals and melodies, the orchestration and instrumentation, the production, the mood and the lyrics have made me enamored with the album. It is also one of the heaviest records in years to me … not in the sense of metal and aggressive vocals/guitars/drums, but in how the songs make you feel.”
