ROCK'IN WITH CELLO
As I mentioned above Cello was not a popular instrument in mainstream music but lately there was a wave of young cellist that form a group and rocking hard with CELLO..yeah rock with CELLO !!, Mozart will probably slap you in the face when you told him that back in the day. Some of the band that I already heard was Apocalyptica, Break of Reality and Melo-M. This group probably begin with cover of famous rock music and then come out with their own material. That is what we called reverse engineering, aint it.
Till date this band have already had 7 album. The early album was a full Metallica cover album titled "Plays Metallica by Four Cellos" and starting from the second album they come out with original song ,I love their song titled "I Don't Care" featuring Adam Gontier from Three Doors Grace. In Metallica's 30th Anniversary Celebration they performed live with Metallica,and that what you called dream come true right!!
Check out this video of their Epic Metallica cover and their hit mainstream song.
BREAK OF REALITY
The official MV is kind of "Twilight influenced" so there is no way i want you guys to watch that.
Cool BYOB cover
This band consist of three weird sunglasses wearing yet talented guy from Latvia. They have 4 LP to date which mostly cover of variety type of music techno,rock,dance and theme song. They done a unique cover for each song and with their trademark energetic cello plays while headbanging to the song they played. This guy should come out with their own mainstream album,somebody who has money who search for something to make more money take a look at this guy please!!
Checkout their cover of Final Countdown,and pay attention to the headbanging,headbanging while playing Cello,now that is rock!
Search for their cover of Mission Impossible and I will Survive...cool stuff !!!
