Dutch symphonic metal masters Within Temptation have been posting a number of covers of famous pop and rock tracks over recent weeks – and some of them are really good! No really.

The covers have been recorded and released as part of the build-up to the band’s 15th anniversary concert, which took place on November 13 in Antwerp, Belgium.

“We figured this would be a great occasion to do something special for [the fans],” say the band. “It will be a musical adventure as we are covering songs that are very close to us but also songs that are not close to us at all.”

The full list of released covers is below, and because we’re nice, we dug out a few:

Paradise (COLDPLAY)
Grenade (BRUNO MARS)
Crazy (GNARLS BARKLEY)
Somebody That I Used To Know (GOTYE)
Dirty Dancer (ENRIQUE IGLESIAS)
Behind Blue Eyes (THE WHO)
Summertime Sadness (LANA DEL REY)
Apologize (ONE REPUBLIC)
Don’t You Worry Child (SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA)
Little Lion Man (MUMFORD & SONS)
