Remembering Keith Flint: Watch Sepultura Cover the Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’
Remember when Sepultura covered the Prodigy's "Firestarter"? The fiery version is found on the Brazilian thrashers' 2014 live album, Metal Veins - Alive in Rock in Rio, and it gives the late Keith Flint's mid-'90s hit a groove metal twist.
Watch below as frontman Derrick Green and co. dig into the Prodigy tune flanked by French percussionists Les Tambours Du Bronx. It happened at the band's first-ever performance at Rock in Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Flint, the Prodigy vocalist and dancer who co-wrote and performed on the original "Firestarter," tragically died by suicide earlier this month after being found unresponsive at his home in Essex, England. The musician was 49.
In response, a swell of fellow rockers offered their condolences for Flint, including members of Led Zeppelin, Trivium and Sum 41. A week later, the Prodigy announced they were cancelling their previously scheduled tour dates.
Last year, Sepultura released a special expanded version of their classic album Arise, which has nearly 30 bonus tracks of previously unreleased material, live recordings, remixes and a cover of Motorhead's "Orgasmatron."
Sepultura are scheduled to play Rock In Rio 2019 this October.
