One song, two versions: Which version of “Let Him Burn” is better?

The first track from the upcoming Sumerian Films movie American Satan has been released. Titled “Let Him Burn”, it features Andy Black in the video, but with Palaye Royale vocalist Remington Leith actually singing. However, the song, originally written by Lee McKinney and Nick Rossi for their new project In Motive, was demoed by vocalist Jonathan Wolfe of Vespera (whose first single “Bloom” has already racked up impressive accolades, including a Billboard premiere, in just 3 months). It’s a radically different version of the song with a grittier, more dynamic vocal performance. And while the just released song is a decent listen in its own right, it’s hard not to say which one is the better song overall.

But we’ll leave that for you to decide. Which version is better? The new version, or Wolfe’s demo version that was recorded in an apartment? Listen to both songs below, and let us know your thoughts.
