Anthony Vincent Covers Adele’s ‘Hello’ in Styles of Deftones, Alice in Chains, GN’R + More
Anthony Vincent is back. The "Ten Second Songs" YouTube sensation is known for covering popular songs in a variety of styles and this time he's taking on the current smash Adele single "Hello," the song that unites us all.
In the past we've seen Vincent turning a Taylor Swift song into a Disturbed-like track. And Halestorm's "I Miss the Misery" got a treatment similar to Adele's "Hello" with a variety of styles being performed.
As always, Vincent shows incredible range performing the song in a variety of styles, but what should not be lost is that he also provides the instrumentation for the song, as well.
Part of what makes his performances entertaining is to see how he manages to blend one style into the next, and perhaps the most jarring turns in this one come late when he moves from the smooth sounds of pop star Seal into the guttural brutality of Dimmu Borgir, then adeptly switches to electronic superstar Deadmau5.
Elsewhere in the song, you'll hear Vincent slipping into the distinctive sound of Alice in Chains, mimicking the heavy enunciation of Thirty Seconds to Mars' Jared Leto, dropping some heavily intense vocals in the style of Deftones, doing his best Axl Rose for Guns N' Roses and giving a nod to Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong.
