Gonga and Beth Gibbons of Portishead Cover Black Sabbath

At no point while listening to "Glory Box" or "Sour Times" did I hope to hear the same singer covering "Black Sabbath." Apparently Gonga did, since they brought Beth Gibbons of Portishead in for their cover of the immortal Black Sabbath song. Gonga covering Sabbath is perfectly obvious. Portishead? Not such an obvious choice, but it works brilliantly. Gibbons brings a certain touch to the cover that stays true to the original while still sounding like Beth Gibbons of Portishead. Also, for equal measure they named their version "Black Sabbeth."

Check out the video for "Black Sabbeth" below, which, of course, borrows video from the classic horror film Black Sabbath.
