Best Metal Joy Division Cover

I always thought that Black Sabbath was just as influential in the Gothic and dark indie world as they were for metal bands. And Joy Division was kind of the opposite: Their music lent itself perfectly to different metallic stylings from depressive black metal to symphonic death metal to the obvious gothic-tinged stuff.

Here are 18 metal(lic) bands covering Joy Division. I enjoyed searching for them and would love to see what others here thought of them.

six years pass...

Ive never seen this thread and probably wouldn’t be that interested but Roy Montgomery did a very limited lathe cut cover of Day of the Lords which he recently posted in YouTube. It’s about as heavy metal as something derived from Roy Montgomery and a drum machine could be expected.
