Greta Thunberg’s impassioned plea at the United Nations Climate Action Summit last weekexcoriating world leaders took the internet by storm. Now, a new version of the teen environmental activist’s speech — set to death metal— has gone viral.

Among the fans of the adaptation? Thunberg herself.

Titled “Greta Thunberg sings Swedish Death Metal,” the video, created by a musician, sets Thunberg’s speech to harsh guitar chords and distorts the 16-year-old Swedish girl’s voice into a growl.

“This is all wrong,” Thunberg roars in the video as the screen flashes different colors and drums bang.

“I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean.”

The music climaxes each time after Thunberg, holding back tears, asks world leaders: “How dare you?”

The video, uploaded last Wednesday by user John Mollusk, had more than 3.1 million views as of Monday morning. Over the weekend, Thunberg tweeted out a link to it, joking, “I have moved on from this climate thing… From now on I will be doing death metal only!!”

The creator did not immediately return a request for comment from NBC News. But in an interview last week with Rolling Stone magazine, which identified the creator as thrash-metal drummer John Meredith, he said he was prompted to make the video because he agreed with Thunberg’s perspective and also thought her searing language lent itself to metal.

“When I saw her speech, I was very impressed by her passion and outrage,” he told the magazine, adding, “I guess I didn’t really have a specific intent other than to turn her brutal words into a metal song.”

Thunberg is no stranger to having her words turned into music.

Video of Greta Thunberg’s U.N. speech set to death metal music has more than 3 million viewsAnd it was endorsed by the teen environmental activist herself, who joked: “I have moved on from this climate thing… From now on I will be doing death metal only!!”

Actor Sid Haig best known for playing Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie’s Firefly film series has died aged 80

Actor Sid Haig, best known for his portrayal as the vile psychopathic clown Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie‘s Firefly film series has died at age 80.

Haig had been a mainstay of the horror and exploitation b-movie genres beginning in the 1960s. Rising to fame in Jack Hill’s blaxploitation films of the 1970s, Haig had become recognisable more recently thanks to his work with Rob Zombie. 

After suffering a “nasty spell” according a post on his official Instagram account, the cult actor was admitted to hospital a couple of weeks ago. 

Haig was later admitted to the ICU following breathing complications and was kept there under observation. 

The actor couldn’t be present for the premiere of the latest Firefly flick, 3 From Hell, the final instalment of the trilogy of films that follow the twisted Firefly family – beginning with 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses and continuing in 2005’s The Devil’s Rejects

Haig’s wife of 12 years, Susan L. Oberg , announced in a heartfelt message via the actor’s official Instagram earlier today that he had succumbed to his illness, passing away on Saturday September 21, 2019: 

“On Saturday, September 21, 2019, my light, my heart, my true love, my King, the other half of my soul, Sidney, passed from this realm on to the next. He has returned to the Universe, a shining star in her heavens. 

“He was my angel, my husband, my best friend and always will be. He adored his family, his friends and his fans. This came as a shock to all of us.

“We, as a family, are asking that our privacy and time to mourn be respected. Sidney Eddie Mosesian 7/14/39 – 9/21/19 Husband, Father, Grandfather, Friend. Goodnight, my love. We will find each other again, next time. I love you.”

Rob Zombies latest horror movie, 3 From Hell,which sees Sid Haig starring along side Danny Trejo, Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, Richard Brake and Dee Wallace, is out now in theatres across the US.

The film is set to arrive on October 14 on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download through Lionsgate UK and will come with a 95-minute making-of documentary titled To Hell And Back and audio commentary from Zombie himself.

JULIET RUIN Premiere Full Album Stream “Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos”

“Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos” Out September 6, 2019

Western Canadian Tour Dates

Edmonton, AB’s JULIET RUIN will be unleashing their first full-length album “Old Stardust, Love and Chaos” on September 6, 2019 to follow their 2017 debut self titled EP. The release promises to be more technical with heavy instrumentation, including some dabbling in low tuned 7 string guitars to create an original sound chock full of catchy hooks that convey a fresh and emotive feel to their heavy music. Lead vocalist Jess Ruin has added more screams, but also more clean techniques with her pop-esque power vocals. Fans of forward-thinking modern metal such as Evanescence, System of a Down, and Killswitch Engage should take special note of this powerful and emotive Canadian band.

Before “Old Stardust, Love and Chaos” is officially out, the band have teamed up with MetalInsider.net for the album’s exclusive full stream HERE.

The band adds: 

“’Old Stardust, Love, and Chaos’ stays true to a lot of our root qualities in terms of catchy hooks and overall groove, but fans can expect a lot of new and even somewhat experimental things on the album as well. Lyrically speaking this album delves into a little bit deeper subject matter than the EP, focusing a lot of personal introspection and mental health, as well as general societal concerns from differing degrees of headspace; from optimism to apathy.”

Digital stream and download will be available on Spotify, Bandcamp, Apple Music, Amazon.

Music Video ‘Spite’ here.

Show Dates:
Sept 6 – Edmonton, AB  – The Starlite Room

“Juliet Ruin’s sound is comparable to a muddier version of Alexisonfire, with Fleming guiding the songs with her powerful voice while being backed up by Geislinger’s harsh screams and growls…. Juliet Ruin has been gaining more recognition after every concert with its single “Rogue Down” receiving a nomination at the Edmonton Music Awards.” – Vue Weekly (2017)

“Search no further than the Juliet Ruin playbook, it’ll teach you a thing or two. Their hard work and dedication are clearly paying off, and I predict that it won’t be too long until they become a commercial success. Yes, I’m willing to wager on it.” – Ravenkin Photography (2018)

Nominated for Metal Recording of The Year – Ugly Side – Edmonton Music Awards 2018
