We’re no strangers to reporting on alterations of Metallica songs, since apparently they’re just THAT much fun to mess around with – but this remix is something a little more than a fun Youtube mashup.
Both Metallica and The Glitch Mob, an electronic 3-piece out of LA, will be performing at this year’s X Games in Austin, TX – so it only seems right to make the anthem of this year’s extreme sporting and music event something reflective of that.
They found exactly that in The Glitch Mob’s EDM remix of Metallica’s “Lords of Summer.” As with many reworkings of this kind, the remix takes samples from the original track combined with some original electronic composition to make a piece that you’d be likely to hear in one of those GoPro videos of a dude doing backflips on a snowboard. Clearly, this makes it a great choice to represent the X Games.
