09. Gonga & Beth Gibbons – “Black Sabbeth”

Gonga - Beth Gibbons - Portishead

Portishead vocalist Beth Gibbons has had her eerie moments, but she dove into the creepy pool entirely when working with Bristol stoner metal outfit Gonga. Their cover of Black Sabbath’s eponymous track (here turned into “Black Sabbeth”) is the stuff of B-movie horror nightmares, Gibbons’ whispery vocals turned into curls of evil purple smoke, Latch Manghat’s bass nipping at your heels. While Gibbons has teased a solo album and Portishead work to get back into the studio, we’d gladly see an entire Beth-as-Ozzy album. –Adam Kivel
