LIFE OF A SONG: FROM SIXTIES SOUL TO BRAZILIAN THRASH METAL: 'TAINTED LOVE'

Sepultura have been on a roll recently with latest album 'Quadra' being the definitive sound of a metal band maintaining their relevance into the 2020's and beyond. However, they've just released a crushing one-off cover version of 60s Soul classic Tainted Love, for the Brazilian TV show Desalma.

Future-Rocker predicts that this sludgy rendition (with a gang-vocal finale for the inevitable moshpit throwdown), is a prime candidate for a huge hit single.



Originally sung by Gloria Jones in 1965, the song became a Post-Punk monster hit in 1981 for Soft Cell.






Tainted Love has also been covered by the Scorpions, Marilyn Manson and Imelda May.
