There are several natural forces at play in the world we live in today – the sun, the wind, the tides, and even the earth itself trembling and spitting fire. These forces, however, pale in comparison to every metalhead’s primal need to blast blast beats and death grunts at literally anything, including where doesn’t belong in – Above all where they don’t belong. Which brings us to a TikTok video where an esteemed gentleman in a Suicide Silence shirt devastates Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles,” one of 2001’s most memorable karaoke-style songs.
But Boozemanyou are crying, if we wanted shitty karaoke, we all have shittier karaoke bars where we can go see it! And I believe you! But this version has deathcore vocals, and guess what? It’s not shit! As the video text itself will tell you, this dude is a beast, and as MetalSucks’ leading authority on deathcore, I agree with that sentiment. Plus, if you’re reading this, chances are there aren’t enough $1 pints in the world to get you through a regular karaoke night without emotional damage, you NEED it.
The dude goes by Tom the Hateful on Instagram and leads a band called Dross, whose music I admit I have trouble tracking down (comments section, do your thing). But if those vocals are any indication, we’re ready to hear more from these guys, especially if it means we get more deathcore karaoke as well. We would also like to have a full version of this song for obvious reasons.
Oh, and if anyone’s looking for ideas, I’m ALWAYS waiting for a spicy deathcore version of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” because most of the covers on YouTube are just metalcore. Please have mercy on us and spare us that horrible TikTok text voice that ruins the first two seconds of every video it’s in. Just my two cents.
Check out the carnage below, with the original for comparison later.
