PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and Davy Jones’ Theme Get Metal Covers

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and Davy Jones’ Theme Get Metal Covers

Years ago, someone at Disney hit upon the idea to turn Disneyland‘s most famous attractions into feature films. That strategy hasn’t always worked out, but it proved to be massively successful with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. With the fifth movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, out this weekend, Hans Zimmer‘s catchy theme for the series has gotten a new metal cover.

Eric Calderone (a.k.a. Erock) has posted his heavy metal inspired take on Zimmer’s iconic music, which has become one of the hallmarks for the film series. On his YouTube page, Calderone wrote that “Pirates is one of those franchises I’ll see every time they put one out. Movie music (and some ball busting friends) is what got me to do Youtube in the first place. Thanks for sticking around, it means the world.”

Calderone actually posted a metal cover for this very same theme all the way back in 2009, in the early days of his YouTube adventures. As you can see below, that video was a little rougher than his current output, but it is still an interesting take on the music.

More recently, Calderone added a new Pirates of the Caribbean theme to his lineup: Davy Jones’ organ music fromĀ Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. Jones is definitely a villain in both movies, but the music captures his tragic side as well as his lost love for the sea goddess, Calypso.
