The Lords of Summer have returned, that I can assure you. The Glitch Mob‘s first release since their ten month old album Love Death Immortality is a massive summer anthem – an ode to the legendary Metallica.

The bass driven remix spans four minutes of intensity with signature glitch mob synths leading the way alongside the memorable Metallica vocals. A throbbing percussion line maintains the perfect amount of presence throughout the track, and we can just see edIT pounding away on the drums in perfect syncopation with Boreta while Ooah commands the melody. Oh wait – you actually can get a preview of their live performance of “Lords of Summer (Glitch Mob Remix)” in this Instagram video below.
