Feurschwanz cover Ed Sheeran track ‘I See Fire’ in new video

Ed Sheeran isn’t the first person you would think of if I told you that German folk/power metal fusion band Feurschwanz released a cover. But I present to you the video for ‘I See Fire’, originally by Ed Sheeran:

Of course, this is appropriate for the Feaurschwanz style the original was featured in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. ‘I See Fire’ is part of a bonus covers album, which also features covers of tracks by Rammstein and more, entitled Die Sieben Todsünden. This is a bonus disc as part of the deluxe version of original album Das Elfte Gebot – released June 26th.

The commented:

“When we were brainstorming which songs we’d choose fo our covers album Die Sieben Todsünden, this song was so close to our hearts, the dragon fans and middle-earth nerds that we are. The original version still makes us shiver and can’t really be topped, so we used powerful guitars, folky bagpipes and epic fiddles. It’s a song about unity while facing destruction war and death and also marks our first song in English…The video was shot in the mystic southwest of England at the coast of Cornwall where Hauptmann, Hodi and Mieze Musch-Musch went last fall.”
