Sam Astaroth unveils DMX ‘Stop Being Greedy’ cover ft. Nicholas Asis.
Sam Astaroth, also known as a the frontman of the avant extreme metal band Astaroth Incarnate, has released a tribute to the artist DMX.
“DMX was one of my favorite artists growing up throughout my teen years. His vocals and lyrics were a huge influence on me towards developing my own Harsh Rap vocal style and eventually led me to doing Extreme Metal Vocals. Stop Being Greedy is one of my favorite songs by him and I was devastated by his unfortunate passing. So I wanted to cover this song to pay my respects to DMX the great. I got my good friend Nicholas Asis from Peru to help me out with additional rhythm and lead guitars on top of the original tune to make the song cater to two genres I absolutely love, Rap and Metal. If you loved DMX as much as I did then I hope you will resonate with this cover.”

Essentially a solo album, though Padilla’s kids did sit in on some tracks (check out “Rice” and “Prepared Xylophone”), the album works as a snapshot of American life during some of the weirdest, darkest few years in recent memory.

“Catatonia was our attempt at writing a simple, circular tune with a strong hook that would stick in listener’s minds, like the way Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana does,” says lead vocalist & guitarist Stephen Burdick. ” The idea behind the video wasn’t anything too elaborate, just us trying to be as absurd and ridiculous as possible whilst also making some sense. Why not have a rogue, alcoholic police officer with a handlebar mustache try to dish out a parking meter ticket, then proceed to have the pursuit of his life which ends with him standing face to face with a risqué representation of the devil who proceeds to smack his bum? We’ve never seen that done before, and what’s more ridiculous than that?”
