Missio – ‘Zombie’ (The Cranberries Cover)


SELF described cinematic/alt-electro artist Missio has produced an ambitious cover of The Cranberries hit rock anthem ‘Zombie’.

Missio A.K.A. Matthew Bruce has managed to perfectly capture the fraught atmosphere of the original track, which is about The Troubles in Ireland. Listen to the original below.

Replacing thrashing, crunching guitars with spacey synth and electro sounds works nicely and his pain-tinged vocals are almost as good as Dolores O’Riordan’s.

An interesting take on the original, the Texan must take massive credit simply for even trying to adapt this epic.
