Xerxes — for metal rock band

I’ve heard some crazy arrangements of my music, from “Asphalt Cocktail” arranged for Mario Paint Composer…

to “Redline Tango” for Electone keyboard and performed by a 10-year-old…

But this latest one might be the most fun for me. It’s “Xerxes,” arranged by Brooks Tarkington IV for metal rock band. Never have the power chords I imagined in my head sounded so sweet. It is, for lack of any better description, badass. Enjoy.
