I've featured the metallic covers of Leo Moracchioli here on the site before, and with each one, I tend to feel that the Norwegian musician is a kindred spirit on the other side of the world. Aside from being a fellow "Rock Father" (he has a daughter as well), his musical inclinations tend to head in a similar direction, with frequent metallic covers of songs that run the gamut from pop to soundtracks and beyond. His latest really hits home as it's a song that I've actually covered myself - Danny Elfman's iconic theme to The Simpsons. The Frog Leap Studios version is admittedly much better than my own Saturday Action Theatre edition (from the 2004 Remakes & Sequels EP), but I'm including both for your listening enjoyment below along with Green Day's 2007 punk version and Powerglove's 2010 metal take!

The twelve-track collection will be available on October 29th, and pre-orders just went live on iTunes. Stream "This is Halloween" below...
