A few weeks ago Metallica released a brand new song titled “Lux Æterna,” and already fans are creating intriguing remixes out of the thrash track.

Among the many remixes we have heard so far, one that has really caught our attention is a version that solely features the song’s isolated drum track. (This version was initially posted over at Loudwire).

Uploaded over on YouTube by user Abunchoftrash, this version of Metallica’s “Lux Æterna” was created using moises.ai. Stripping away the guitars, bass, and vocals, this remix only features the song’s isolated drum track, played by band member Lars Ulrich. When it comes to Lars Ulrich’s drumming, opinions from the metal community can be quite… polarizing.
