Finnish Espoo-based progressive melodic death metal band Damnation Plan releases a second single from their upcoming new album Reality Illusion. The single is a tribute to the past heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio in form of a classic DIO track “Don’t Talk To Strangers”.
Jarkko Lunnas from Damnation Plan comments the single release:
“For our first album as bonus tracks we had created our versions of the movie themes ‘The Terminator’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZLWEuYO1as) and ‘The Running Man’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xniQmO7V3yU), to pay tribute to our childhood inspirations and heroics (and oh yes, we still get kicks out of them!).
“So for this new album we wanted to do some cover track as well. We were throwing around some ideas to do some pop songs etc. until the idea to do Dio’s ‘Don’t Talk To Strangers’ came up. So, instead of a hologram we came up with our version of one of the late legend’s finest tracks to honor his legacy. So here it is – ‘Don’t Talk To Strangers’, in style of Damnation Plan!”
