Howling Giant teamed up with ex-Accept bassist Peter Baltes and vocalist Udo Dirkschneider for a killer cover of AC/DC's "Shoot To Thrill." The cover is off Magnetic Eye Records' upcoming Back in Black [Redux] covers album featuring Red Fang, Whores, Heavy Temple, and many more.

"I've loved 'Shoot to Thrill' and AC/DC since the first time I have heard this track at the age of 8," said Howling Giant bassist Sebastian Baltes, son of Peter Baltes. "This great classic very much embodies the sound of the Australian giants. Being able to arrange our own version while working with my father and Udo has been a wonderful opportunity that brought things full-circle."

"AC/DC has been the Soundtrack to my life," added Peter Baltes. "A few years back, we were opening for two giant AC/DC shows in Germany, which to me was one of the greatest experiences ever."

Back in Black [Redux], as well as its companion AC/DC covers album Best of AC/DC [Redux], is out December 3. Pre-orders are available here.
