Very well done! Enjoyed your various covers. I've done instrumental covers of this song and Seasons in the Abyss as well.

With a little tweaking, I find that the MkIII can easily pull off a variety of Marshall sounds as well as classic supercharged '80s Boogie like no other!

Here are a few others I have covered in my studio that the MkIII does extremely well :twisted: :

Read Between the Lies
Spill the Blood
Spirit in Black

I typically change the solos and/or other parts of the songs subtly to have some fun when them while keeping the original spirit.
Quad Preamp/2:90
MkIII+ Simul-Class & MkIVb
Mark 4x12 Stack
Charvel 650 Custom/EMG85/SLV/SLV+SPC
Charvel San Dimas I Koa USA
Jackson Soloist Pro MIJ
B.C. Rich Eagle Evo2/Air Norton
ESP Eclipse EMG 81/60
Ibanez UV7BK
Charvel 475 Exotic
Fender Tele USA

Tony Iommi used mark IIC+ amps when Ronnie James Dio was in the band. There is a great video of him giving an interview with six heads in the background.
