House of the Rising Sun by The Animals. Most people don't know it's just a traditional folk song. Bob Dylan even did a version of it in 1962.

Something about Catuvolcus' cover of the song "Thrill of the Struggle" originally by Woods of Ypres just seems more polished and epic, though the original has some good qualities the cover doesn't have, the cover just does a lot of stuff better than it does worse.

Here's the original.


and the cover via bandcamp because it has better sound quality than the youtube uploadings, imo. -- Thrill of the Struggle (Woods of Ypres cover) | Deathbound Records

I like it!

(off topic) Hey, I'm sorta new to this site and I'm wondering how you make the actual video appear, instead of just the link? I tried putting the "Youtube" tags before and after the link, but all I get is a blank box. lol

Original youtube URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlqXyjwJwYM
Part of URL that you use to embed: nlqXyjwJwYM
Put that part (the bit after watch?v=) in between youtube tags and you're good. Quote this post to see what the finished product looks like.
