In a time when the Middle East is even less stable than usual, Victoria Faiella brings us an Arabian-themed cover of Black Sabbath’s classic anti-war song. Replacing the guitar and bass with sitar and violin changes the tone from angry to haunting, and Faiella’s vocals contribute to this effect, especially when she wails “oh yeah” at the end of the second verse.
From there it gets crazier. The sitar solo rivals the original guitar solo for sheer awesomeness. She first released a demo of the song last year, but this final version appears on Faiella’s new CD, Wild Butterfly. Check it out below.
