It is, but the idea (from what I can tell) is to provide tools by which Hessians can show non-Hessians exactly where the beauty lies in metal music - by removing their enslavement to the preconceptions they've formed around the "sound" of metal music.
I made this for that reason. Some melodic death/black metal songs have such great melodies that it actually sounds better on traditional instruments, although you lose the aggression of the tremolo picking, drums and screaming.

It's the 3rd riff that I really wanted to hear, and then just ended up doing the whole thing. What next, "Non-Divine", "Within", "Windows", something from Gorgoroth or Emperor? It needs to have a decent sense of melody or harmony for me to take the time. I do it as a learning exercise.
maybe that silly Fenriz guy will release a House remix of TH since he clearly doesn't give a shit about his fans.
Some thing along these lines?
