If Greta Thunberg’s speech at the UN hasn’t impacted you yet, there’s one with it being reimagined as a heavy metal song that might do the trick.
The fervent version of her speech was remastered by thrash-metal drummer John Meredith from NYC metal trio, Suaka.
John Meredith told Rolling Stone in a recent interview that when he saw her speech, he thought her hot-blooded language would be apt for a hardcore metal song, so he took up his drum sticks and created a now-viral YouTube clip titled, ‘Greta Thunberg sings Swedish Death Metal’ under his YouTube handle, ‘John Mollusk’.
He also said the 16-year-old climate activist’s choice of words just “evoked the darkness of the metal music” he is a fan of, namely Entombined, Gojira and Sepultura.
As he thought Greta’s voice was not “metal enough,” the drummer took it upon himself to growl over the speech to mirror the vocals of a metal band.
Meredith added that he didn’t have “a specific intent” besides to turn her words into a metal track. “My personal stance is that individuals need to do their part to strive to conserve and preserve our environment,” he explained.
Greta Thunberg herself has given the video the green light, joking on Twitter, “I have moved on from this climate thing… From now on I will be doing death metal only!”
The internet, of course, celebrated the latest rendition of Greta Thunberg’s impassioned speech.
