This is painful. I thought it would be cool, but this is barely more enjoyable than Richard Cheese and I hate that guy. Hellsongs covers metal songs in a pop, acoustic and orchestral way in order to bring them to new light. The problem is that those songs were written to evoke a powerful and aggressive emotional response and trying to make people cry with a Regina Spektor-like arrangement and voice is not actually working most of the time. I'll admit as much that "Seek and destroy" actually works, but would work better if it wasn't 16 minutes long and Iron Maiden's "Run to the hills" also does work; the rest is just very hard to listen to. The novelty is fun for just about 2 minutes, after that it's just torture.
