Snails is known for throwing down heavy tracks, so what perfect way to channel that energy than with a track dedicated to a man who's living was to literally throw down people? In an homage to WWE wrestler Randy Orton, SNAILS (real name Frédérik Durand) has enlisted Rico Act for his latest single "RKO," a term made famous by the legendary man of the ring. 

The track is signature to Durand's headbanger production styling. It's heavy and gritty and in conjunction with Rico Act's bars will get you hyped to body slam someone in the mosh pit. Be careful out there, though, kids

On the topic of the single, Durand said:

“Working with Rico Act on this song was so much fun! He brought up the idea of incorporating the wrestling world with the headbanger world and loved it!! So we decided to create a bass anthem and pay tribute to one of the greatest Randy Orton and his famous move the 'RKO.'
