Does there need to be a deathcore cover of “Let It Go” from Disney’s super-successful Frozen? Absolutely not, but Sumerian band Betraying the Martyrs have stepped up and done one anyway. And while there’s no official reason that anyone should want this, it makes sense that someone do it. “Let It Go” is the most popular song in the movie, and the soundtrack is the biggest album of the year (3 million sold and counting). Like the original song or not, it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most mass appeal songs to come out in the past year, if not the most mass appeal song. Factor in that some people are calling Frozen a “totally metal” movie, and a case could be made for a deathcore cover of it. That doesn’t mean we have to like it, though. Look for the french deathcore band Betraying the Martyrs to pick up quite a few preteen female fans when their sophomore album, Phantom, comes out tomorrow.
Phantoms will be released on Sumerian tomorrow (15)
