Lamb Of God axe-man Mark Morton has just released a video to accompany his cover of ‘Black’ by Pearl Jam, which is taken from his recent solo EP, ‘Ether’.

Originally premiered over on Consequence Of Sound, the video was shot during Morton‘s recent solo tour of the UK, and the song features Mark Morales handling vocal duties.

This is what Morton had to say about the song.

“The early ’90s were such an important and vibrant time for rock music in general, and I feel like ‘Black’ is one of the great songs from that era. Our approach in covering it was to present a super stripped-down version, sticking the essence of the song. It’s got a very lonely feel to it and Mark Morales delivered an absolutely incredible vocal performance.”

You can check out his cover of ‘Black’ below.

His solo EP, ‘Ether’, is out now via Rise Records.

You can order the EP online from MerchNow (here), iTunes (here), Amazon (here), and Google Play (here).
