Ryan Adams has taken on another cover of one of his Heavy Metal heroes, this time it’s Danzig’s 1988 song Mother, performed at a show in Paris (listen below). As you’d expect, he puts his own folk touch on the track, as found with other metal songs he’s done, including Iron Maiden’s Wasted Years and Dio’s Holy Diver.
Adams was in Australia recently, touring on the back of his latest album Ashes & Fire, his first since disbanding with The Cardinals. Ashes and Fire was released via his own record label Pax-Am. It is also the first serious release from Adams since 2008′s Cardinology.
He has also recently released his iTunes Sessions EP, which was recorded earlier this year at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios, featuring songs over the length of his career, and a cover of Bob Mould’s Black Sheets of Rain.
