Portland’s doom metal outfit, Red Fang, have covered The King’s (aka, Elvis Presley) song “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” It’s totally not what you’d expect, putting such a sobering tone on one of rock’s greatest love ballads. Check it out over at Loudwire and let us know what you think.

The band said about the song:

We were asked to cover an Elvis song a while back and none of us are really Elvis fans so we were kind of at a loss. We had this dark and doomy jam we’d been kickin’ around for a while and we thought ‘what if we just record our own song and see if we can make the lyrics fit somehow?’ And to our surprise it turned out pretty rad! Maybe Elvis is spinning in his grave, but I dig it.

The cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” will appear alongside a cover of Fraggle Rock’s “Why” on a limited edition 7″ to be released by Volcom in conjunction with the band’s upcoming U.S. tour. 500 copies of the 7″ on red/black splatter will be available exclusively via Volcom, while 500 copies on red vinyl and 1,000 copies on black vinyl will be available with the band on tour (see below for tour dates).
