Slowed-down versions of classic rock and metal songs are all the rage these days: everyone from Iron Maiden, Slayer, Metallica, Meshuggah and Heart have had their most legendary recordings slowed down to mudslide tempos by crafty online audiophiles, and the results are often more appealing than you might think. Case in point, this doomy version of Rush's "Working Man," which sounds more like St. Vitus than anything the Canadian prog trio would have produced 40 years ago. Give it a whirl with open ears and let us know what you think!

I just gradually became this “session player.” I love it. I don't care what it's called, I'm just so happy to just plug in and jam with somebody else. ‘Cause everyone has killer ideas, no matter what level of musician or what age of band they are, there's always something new and killer about playing with someone different, and as long as they keep giving me the chance to keep doing it, I'll keep doing it.
