RPG Elden Ring has taken over the world in the last couple of weeks. The FromSoftware game that was developed with direct input from Game Of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin has quickly become one of the most talked-about and universally praised games of its generation, and as such has been taking up the bulk of a lot of people's time. Not surprisingly given how deeply we know how deeply connected the metal and gaming worlds are already, many of those people are metalheads. One of those metalheads, Rivers Of Nihl and Flub drummer Jared Klein has taken a break from playing the game long enough to post a drum cover of the hypnotic Elden Ring theme, injecting a healthy dose of blast beats for good measure. Check it out below.
