An album made up of metal covers of Florence + The Machine songs is set for release.

'Florence + The Sphinx' is set for release on May 13 via Sumerian Records and features tracks from Periphery, Stick To Your Guns and Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria, reports AltPress. Scroll down for a full tracklisting and to listen to Periphery's 'Only If For A Night', Stick To Your Guns' 'Dog Days Are Over' and Come The Dawn's 'What The Water Gave Me'.

Speaking about the record, Sumerian's co-founder Ash Avildsen commented: "To me, 'Ceremonials' by Florence + The Machine is one of the most timeless records to come out in years. The distinctive vocals and melodies, the orchestration and instrumentation, the production, the mood and the lyrics have made me enamored with the album. It is also one of the heaviest records in years to me… not in the sense of metal and aggressive vocals/guitars/drums, but in how the songs make you feel."

The 'Florence + The Sphinx' tracklisting is:

Periphery - 'Only If For A Night'
Stick To Your Guns - 'Dog Days Are Over'
Ben Bruce (of Asking Alexandria) - 'Shake It Out'
Darkest Hour - 'Spectrum'
Miss Fortune - 'No Light, No Light'
Fever Dreamer - 'Leave My Body'
Born of Osiris - 'Seven Devils'
Come The Dawn - 'What The Water Gave Me'
Upon A Burning Body - 'Lover To Lover'
Mike Semesky (of Intervals) - 'Heartlines'
Dead Letter Circus - 'Remain Nameless'
City In The Sea - 'All This And Heaven Too'
