Atlanta duo Mantis are letting their roots show. Officially released as a free download, the two take on Linkin Park’s popular “One Step Closer.”  This remix takes the energy of the original and cranks it way up.  What results is an intense drumstep track that bass fans will eat up.

The song opens quietly, but builds quickly and ominously into a relentless, revving drop.  Vocals take over for a short break in the middle – please take this time to retrieve any brain matter, should your head have exploded.  The finale of the song manages to kick it up another level, introducing a heavy metal riff and speeding up further.  It’s polished, and brutal in all the right ways.  Expect this track to pop up in bass shows all summer long.

Mantis is letting this remix go as a free download, so grab yours and get metal.
