Dillinger Escape Plan, As I Lay Dying Provide Covers For Free Soundtrack

Poopeano

OK, listen — we don’t have much time.

Today (March 22), at 11 a.m. on the West Coast and 2 p.m. on the East Coast, go to this Web site, created for the new “Homefront” video game. You will be able to download the game’s soundtrack for free…but act fast. Once the page hits 25,000 downloads, you’ll be shut out.

Plan your day around this, kids, because there is some sick shit on this comp: all covers from the likes of Dillinger Escape Plan, As I Lay Dying, Periphery, and Misery Signals. You can find the full track listing after the jump…if those four bands weren’t enough to pique your interest.

My one complaint: Misery Signals covered Pink Floyd’s “Us And Them.” Why does every band cover this song? I mean, arguably, “Wish You Were Here” has been covered waaaaay more, but “Us And Them” has got to be the second most covered Pink Floyd tune. Branch out, dudes. And “War Pigs???” How many times do we need to hear that song destroyed?

“Homefront” soundtrack track listing:
1. As I Lay Dying – “War Ensemble” (Slayer)

2. The Dillinger Escape Plan – “Fight The Power” (Public Enemy)

3. iwrestledabearonce – “Uprising” (Muse)

4. The Acacia Strain – “War Pigs” (Black Sabbath)

5. Periphery – “One” (Metallica)

6. The Ghost Inside – “Fortunate Son” (Creedence Clearwater Revival)

7. Winds Of Plague – “For What It’s Worth” (Buffalo Springfield)

8. Misery Signals – “Us And Them” (Pink Floyd)

9. Arsonists Get All The Girls – “Masters Of War” (Bob Dylan)

10. Oceano – “War” (Edwin Starr)

11. Veil Of Maya – “Sunday Bloody Sunday” (U2)

    I actually really like the Bob Dylan cover… It’s completely different to the original, but still good. I’m happy with most of the covers here, but I’m not a fan of Periphery, and them covering my favourite Metallica song made me dislike them even more. The cover Oceano did was just so bad I stopped laughing halfway through. I couldn’t breathe. The cover Acacia Strain did was AMAZING.

    The Acacia Strain and Oceano covers are a BEAST. Period.

    Misery Signals did a decent job on that song, way better than DT and Scissor Sisters andwhatnot. Tho, not the same without those sax solo’s!
