After a ridiculously long wait, Amazon finally shipped the copy of Atargatis's Nova to me, and I am really enjoying listening to it. There is one song on it, however, that piqued my interest because the lyrics were credited to three people not in the band, with the date 1991, and the lyrics themselves were not printed in the booklet like the rest of their songs were. This is the song "Crucified." So, I did a bit of research and after a few dead ends, finally found out that "Crucified" was originally by a Swedish pop band called Army of Lovers, and for some reason, Atargatis had decided to cover this on Nova.
Kind of an...interesting choice, given the rest of the album's content, the theme of which I am still trying to piece together. Turns out, though, that Army of Lovers has an official video of "Crucified." When I watched it, I was a tadstunned. It is...for lack of a more polite term...bizarre. Here it is:
All righty, then...:|
Anyway, Atargatis did a pretty decent metal cover of this song, actually. Here it is:
Way better! If only they would make a video for it, to erase some of the images from the original video!
