This is one talented band, making a name for themselves by covering Metallica songs - except that they are a quartet of cello players!

They've also done a few albums of their own material which are great. Most of them are instrumental, but they have had some guest singers too.

I think they're relatively unheard of - I only heard of them through my boyfriend. Was just wondering if anyone else had heard of them!

A few links for those unsure what I'm on about. Their songs are all quite different, so I have found 4 examples...

Quutamo (my favourite instrumental song of theirs - this isn't actually a video, just the song)

Path Vol. 2 (this one is with vocals..)

Repressed (one of their heaviest, might turn off those who don't like the heavy screamy-style vocals)

For those going "Nah - that can't be a cello sound, surely?" Here's a live video - awesome heavy cover of Hall of the Mountain King - for those impatient - it starts to get crazy about 1:50 ish:

For those curious about how it sounds when they cover Metallica, here is their cover of Nothing Else Matters.

And Master of Puppets:

Not for everyone of course, but perhaps someone will enjoy :D

I love Bittersweet too! Funny thing is that I really don't like HIM, but I still love that song, even though he is singing in it... xD

I remember liking their Hell of the Mountain King song when I heard it a couple years ago. It was hilariously over the top and awesome.

Of course I'm a fan of them, It was great when they came to Colombia to a Rock al Parque festival back in 2005, I was there!!!!
