Cover: Leviathan - My War

Black metal is not at all my thing, but I somehow stumbled upon Leviathan on Myspace. When I saw they had a song called "My War," I figured I'd at least check to see if it was the Black Flag classic. Sure enough, it was. Now, Black Flag is probably in my top ten of all time and "My War" has particular sentimental value for me (I nominated it for my class song in high school!), so it's probably a tough one to do justice to in my eyes, but I doubt Leviathan could justice to much of anything. They robbed the song of all its real anger and replaced it with a sense of "look at me, I'm crazy" that seems to permeate their whole image. I was annoyed, not scared. What crap.
