More than a year after the release of their highly acclaimed “Ultracrepidarian”, the Spanish traditional doom metal duo TodoMal are back with their own interpretation of this classic written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
TodoMal is brain child of Wildman and Mile, two veteran multi-instrumentalists of the Spanish underground (and not only) scene, whose extensive background goes back to a myriad of projects of multiple styles like Asgaroth, Nexus 6, The Heretic, Dejadeath…
Says the band: “We’ve long been fans of Aphrodite’s Child, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, early Bee Gees, the Stones, and other iconic bands. Our earliest recollections of “Paint it black” are of a lively, western-style song with lyrics that hint at pessimism, despair, and loss. We thought a cover of a well-known song would be a perfect starting point for us. It would allow us to take a break while we work on our next album, which we believe will be our finest yet. Writing music can be tremendously gratifying but also daunting and painful, so we felt that recording a few covers could spare us from exploding into a mass of human debris.”
