“Karen Metal” is here.

I mean, because metal didn’t have enough sub-genres, right?

So, for “Karen Metal,” we have YouTuber Andre Antunes to thank. Antunes, an incredible guitarist, usually posts unique, amped-up versions of classical music on YouTube.

His latest creations, though, take angry voices of American citizens and couple them with intense riffing, thus, creating “Karen Metal.”

Will “Karen Metal” really become a thing? Years from now, will it be one of the most popular sub-genres of metal music? Time will tell.

Watch Antunes in action below.
