The Glitch Mob has come a long way in the past five years. I remember seeing them immediately after dropping their debut album together entitled Drink The Sea, and let's just say the venue was not that packed. The trio made up of LA based producers Ooah, Boreta, and edIT have continued to push the boundaries of their glitched out soundscapes, getting more daring and heavy over the years.
That was the course they took on Love Death Immortality, and on their new remix of "Lords Of Summer" from Metallica, they keep this pace up. The track is the official anthem for the 2015 X Games, bridging the gap between metal legends and the unrelenting rise of dance music.
The free download has moments of melodic synthesizers that sound similar to moments on Drink The Sea, and then immediately we hear rugged vocals from the original and metal inspired instrumentations pop in like a bat out of hell. It's all out mayhem, and proves just how wild The Glitch Mob is willing to take their constantly developing sound.
Get ready to hear this blaring your television speakers this summer, juxtaposing all the knick knacks and backflips and whatever Travis Pastrana is trying out this year.
