Gavin The Third covers Queen's "Death on Two Legs"

Posted By on Thu, Jun 20, 2013 at 10:50 AM

Already garnering some buzz with his self- titled debut, Gavin the Third is now sharing his rendition of Queen's classic "Death on Two Legs." Originally released in 1975, the song is known for Queen's opera- tinged touch, but Gavin The Third's cover veers into a different direction.

Channeling his inner heavy metal head, Gavin the Third avoids the classical piano in favor of squealing guitar pitches and distorted, riff heavy progressions. “I was really excited about recording this song," said Gavin the Third. "I didn’t take the task too lightly because I knew I had to live up to expectations and listeners would be comparing it to the original."
