The Last Reign release cover of Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U”

The Buffalo, New York, based outfit, THE LAST REIGN have unleashed their ludicrously heavy rendition of “Good 4 U”, originally by OLIVIA RODRIGO. The new single lands ahead of the band’s upcoming EP Sands Of Fate which will be released in 2023.

“Our guest vocalist for the EP, Jesse Isadore, is primarily responsible for picking “Good 4 U” by OLIVIA RODRIGO. It was certainly a unique choice, but a fun experiment working with a modern pop song after just releasing our 80s cover EP, “Just Too Darn Loud”.”

Bringing powerful thundering metal instrumentation and a multi-textural vocals performance of aggressive harsh and gloomy spoken parts, “Good 4 U” has received a dramatic transformation. The upbeat energy of the original is metamorphized into intense anguish and high-speed rhythms through the medium of THE LAST REIGN’s ’90s inspired melodic death sound. Demonic shrieks and distorted guitar tones are evocative of styles from the likes of EARLY IN FLAMES, SOILWORK and AT THE GATES, which aptly suit the new cover.  

THE LAST REIGN have produced a dark and moody track, successfully dragging the original song kicking and screaming into the shadowy realms of metal. It’s a metal cover of a pop track you never knew you needed.
