Brooding, caustic NYC metal band Tombs covered a faithful, if not slightly heftier, version of David Bowie’s “Heroes.” To my ears, it’s got a little bit of that shadowy Joy Division sheen that Tombs favors so much, but the thing that gets me is vocalist/guitarist Mike Hill’s genuine emotive power.

There’s also a version with a verse howled in German by Ralph Schmidt (Hëllström, Planks) over at Ghettoblaster, which commissioned the covers.
