Vale’s singing delivery is alternately snarling and chilling, while Hawken gives the mighty industrial riffs a modern sheen without stepping on what made them special in the first place. It’s a masterclass in metal covers, and you can hear it above while watching its accompanying music video, which features a man with a deadly affinity for fire. “We really wanted to challenge ourselves with ‘Sonne,’ especially vocally,” Vale tells us. “Before doing the song I hadn’t spoken a word of German. It was extremely important to make sure my personality and emotion came through even while singing in a foreign language.”
“I grew up hearing my parents speak Ukrainian at home and am fairly decent at learning languages, which definitely helped a lot,” she continues. “Despite these challenges, we wanted to make sure the song still felt authentic to us and our style as a band.”
Black Satellite are touring later this summer with John 5, Fozzy and Through the Fire. See the dates and snag tickets here.
