Born This Heavy Way

Guitarist Ol Drake of British thrashers Evile has written and arranged a heavy version of the Lady Gaga's hit "Born This Way". The resulting track, which — according to Ol Drake — represents "how 'Born This Way' would have sounded if Judas Priest had written it with [the pop singer]" — can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. Ol added, "This should ruffle a few feathers!"
