As a way to remember the 27 years of death of the legendary vocalist Freddie Mercury, Queen, the young Spanish band Ankor released today through its official youtube channel, a video referring to a cover done by them of the classical music “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Metal version.
Ankor is an alternative metal band formed in 2003, and is currently releasing their album “Beyond the Silence of These Years” released this year.
Check it out:
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band’s 1975 album A Night at the Opera. It is a six-minute suite, consisting of several sections without a chorus: an intro, a ballad segment, an operatic passage, a hard rock part and a reflective coda. The song is a more accessible take on the 1970s progressive rock genre.
When it was released as a single, “Bohemian Rhapsody” became a commercial success, staying at the top of the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks and selling more than a million copies by the end of January 1976.
It reached number one again in 1991 for another five weeks when the same version was re-released following Mercury’s death, eventually becoming the UK’s third-best-selling single of all time.
