You know what Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker needs? Death metal drumming

A standard part of  Christmas for more than a century has been Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Most people prefer the traditional version, but 66Samus, the drummer for Decrepit Birth, believed that The Nutcracker would benefit from some death metal drumming.

I wonder what ol‘ Pytor would have made of this interpretation of his 1892 masterwork?
