Electronic innovators are excavating nu-metal's history for their own works, like Oneohtrix Point Never on his “cybergrunge” opus Garden Of Delete, and now most directly by Celestial Trax with a remix of Korn's “Freak On A Leash.” The angst anthem is transformed by the remix's crushing militaristic stomp and witchy pitch shifting. Building slowly to a cacophony of samples, the whole thing's a small wonder of collage fit to be the entrance music of a warrior at a televised death match. If you're not like me and didn't vibe to a version of this track in 7th grade after the worst break-up in. The. WORLD, it's not too late. Listen below via Tiny Mix Tapes.
