You’ve never heard Slipknot on cello before

Posted by on October 23, 2017

Of all the classical music instruments out there, cello is probably the most metal. It’s low, heavy and mournful, but also has a pretty great attack. Apocalyptica realized that a long time ago, and have built their career off of it. More recently, we’ve gotten to hear Opeth covered by cello, and Rob Scallon and a friend stopped by a BYOB establishment to play System of a Down on cello. Now, a YouTuber simply known as “celloshredder” has done a version of Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed.” Part of what makes this good other than the interesting arrangement is that the dude looks decidedly non-metal, even wearing a bow tie at some points.
