“The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel is probably the most widely-covered song in the history of cover songs. Okay, maybe “House of the Rising Sun” takes that prize, but SoS is just one of those tunes that seems to have influenced a massive number of musicians from every genre.
My band Post Pulse decided to recreate the iconic song despite the wide variety of versions out there because more than just playing a tune that has had a big influence on us, we wanted to rewrite it as a proper metal track. The idea is that many bands can play someone else’s song, but not many bands can bring something new to the table, and that’s what we wanted to do with this song.
You might love it or hate it, but for Post Pulse we wanted to pay tribute to Simon & Garfunkel and one of the most iconic songs of all time, “The Sound of Silence.” Enjoy:
