Former Audiophobia drummer/vocalist turned TikTok rock star Jeris Johnson has given Slayer‘s classic 1986 track “Raining Blood” a sure to be controversial update. City Morgue‘s ZillaKami joins him on this new rap-oriented take, which arrives complete with an accompanying music video. That video, which is available below, appears to pay homage to Slipknot‘s music video for their 2004 track, “Duality“.

Speaking of the track, Johnson offered:

“‘Raining Blood‘ is a song I made exclusively to piss off old rock fans. Also, ‘cause it was my fav song on Guitar Hero 3. I was just in the mood to make some loud ass mosh pit type shit and what better to sample than one of the best guitar riffs of all time. I wanna light the room on fire every time I play live, and this is the track that’s gonna do it. I asked ZillaKami to hop on and lend his energy to it and I’m very thankful he did because he fucking crushed it. Make it rain blood.”

Johnson has made some inroads reworking past metal & rock hits on TikTok. His past remake of Papa Roach‘s hit 2000 single “Last Resort” resulted in him working with the band themselves on an official remix. Johnson did however recently court some controversy for criticizing the older metal acts currently booked for this year’s rock and metal festivals.
