Turisas vs. Boney M.: "Rasputin" video

Here’s a video for the song “Rasputin” by the folk metal band Turisas. I saw them in concert a couple of weeks ago (with three other folk metal bands, on the “Pagan Fest” tour). They were awesome–in fact, the whole damn show was awesome, probably the best concert I’ve ever been to.

This song, “Rasputin,” was recently released as a single by the band, previously being something they only played live. Thing is, it’s a cover–of a disco song. I’d never heard of the disco version before, but it’s by an artist called Boney M. Here’s Turisas’s version:



Man, isn’t that violin player a bad-ass? Here’s the Boney M. version, in case you’re curious how it compares:



Not surprisingly, the Turisas version kicks a whole lot more ass, but I have to say–Boney M? Not bad.
