Metal Hammer

Vera Farmiga, beloved actress and star of the likes of The Conjuring, Bates MotelGodzilla: King Of The Monsters and MCU series Hawkeye, won the hearts of metalheads across the internet earlier this year courtesy of a rousing cover of Iron Maiden classic The Trooper. The cover, which she sang backed by a band that included none other than Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, took place at a show put on by Rock Academy – a music school from Woodstock, New York that use rock and heavy metal to attract more young people into being involved with music.

Last night, Sunday November 20, Farmiga returned to the Rock Academy stage once again, this time taking on a song by the architects of heavy metal themselves, Black Sabbath. In footage since posted to social media, a familiar air raid siren blasts out across the speakers, and Vera appears to be introducing the song by explaining that it’s about “the carnage of war and the greed of politicians.” She then seems to label warmongering Russian leader Vladimir Putin a “fucking war pig”, before launching into – yes, you guessed it – Sabbath’s seminal 1970 anthem, War Pigs.
