Despite Shinoda’s talent, many prefer the original composition first heard in the Wrath of the Lich King trailer.
Mike Shinoda recorded an instrumental cover of the Arthas, My Son title track of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. The cover artwork is stylistically very similar to early Linkin Park, combining electronics and guitar riffs.
The cover was released by Blizzard on the official World of Warcraft YouTube channel.
In September, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic was launched. The classic server has all the content from the 2007 update.
