Listen: Slayer’s “Raining Blood” Reimagined as an Emo Trap Song


The Italian YouTuber known as Red Sky recently went about transforming Slayer’s “Raining Blood” in an emo trap song, which he tells MetalSucks he did “just for a joke and challenging myself.” But if we’re being honest, very little of the resulting track is recognizable as “Raining Blood” — the main riff gets included, and that’s about the extent of it.

I don’t personally like the results, but I also didn’t know there was even such a thing as “emo trap” until Red Sky e-mailed us about this, and I’m still not clear how it’s different from non-emo trap. So maybe I’m not the best judge.

ANYWAY, you can check out the track below. It’s preceded by a long-ass video about how Red Sky made the song, which I didn’t find interesting on account of my Italian being rusty, so I cued the video up to where the song actually begins. Obviously you can back it up and watch the whole thing if you so please.
