Members of Coheed and Cambria, Tool, Mastodon and Primus have joined forces for a massive cover of the Rush song “Anthem.”
The all-star lineup includes Coheed vocalist Claudio Sanchez, Tool drummer Danny Carey, Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher, and Primus frontman Les Claypool, as well as Stephen Brodsky of the band Mutoid Man and online metal personality Gwarsenio Hall.
In addition to forming the dream band for people who love irregular time signatures, the cover is also raising money for charity, as each participating artist is donating their fee to the Cancer Research Institute.
You can watch the “Anthem” performance streaming now on YouTube.
In case you couldn’t tell by the, well, everything about them, Coheed, Tool, Mastodon and Primus are all very influenced by Rush. Primus, in fact, was scheduled to launch a Rush tribute tour this summer, but the outing was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
