Mastodon, Russian Circles Members Cover Alice in Chains

Musicians tackled "Rain When I Die" for 'Two Minutes To Late Night'

Two Minutes To Late Night has given us plenty of collaborations to remember this year, but the talk show’s latest concoction might just be its best.

As part of an ongoing quarantine cover series, appropriately named show host Gwarsenio Hall enlisted Mastodon’s Brann Dailor, Russian Circles’ Mike Sullivan, Justin Suitor of Painted Wives and Cave In’s Stephen Brodsky to take on Alice in Chains’ ’92 cut “Rain When I Die.”

The guys shred throughout, with intricate harmonies laced into the wah-wah-backed cover. And as an added bonus, we get a glimpse of their home studio setups.

“Martin Scorsese’s Alice in Chains doesn’t live here anymore,” the video’s YouTube caption read. “We covered ‘Rain When I Die’ and we did it with some added panache.”

The show recently shared some killer covers of Rage at the Machine and Rush (featuring members of Mastodon, Coheed and Cambria, Tool and Primus) — and even an interesting version of Robyn’s “Ever Again” (by members of Spirit Adrift and Royal Thunder).
