Steve ‘n’ Seagulls Deliver Somber ‘November Rain’ Video
Steve 'n' Seagulls, the countrified Finnish outfit best known for adapting rock and metal classics into a more bluegrass oriented style, are back and this time they're taking on a Guns N' Roses favorite. The guys have delivered their cover of "November Rain," providing their own unique twist.
Further proving a great song is a great song, Steve 'n' Seagulls have put their spin on the arrangement for the track while keeping it's solemn touchtones intact. Banjo player Herman leads the vocals on the song, while guitarist Remmel provides some near perfect harmonies at times. For a good portion of the track, it is just the two musicians leading the way, but eventually an organ, stand up bass and brush-utilized drums add to the mix.
Keeping with the title of their album, Brothers in Farms, the guys embrace the look, as the high concept wedding, funeral and desert church scenes from the original GN'R video are replaced by the overall-wearing outfit hanging out at their cabin in the woods, distilling moonshine, dealing with a steaming vehicle, splitting wood and doing some trapping. Watch it all play out in the video above.
Steve 'n' Seagulls are promoting the Brothers in Farms album, which features a number of familiar rock and metal songs with the band's new arrangements. You can pick up a copy here.
