This "two keys down" modulation is executed in two quick steps: a "modulation" (just one chord: i > I) to the parallel key (three keys down) and a neighbour modulation (one step back: I = V) similarly as in We Are The Champions (Chorus to Verse: F > f > c#). In the latter it is done in the
opposite direction and much slower.
i > ii
Metallica: Call Of Ktulu (outro: d > e > d, abrupt modulations)
i > bII This jump too takes two keys.
