    The music was great, song worked well.

    But unlike Akappy, their `enthusiasm` was a bit of a turnoff for me ><

    Cellist #2 might have something to do with it.

    I believe this is Apocalyptica, they were the half-time slot at the last Eurovision. I have an album of them covering Metallica songs.

    I`m impressed that they were able to head-bang while playing; when I`m head-banging, I can`t concentrate on anything besides throwing the horns and screaming for blood.

    It`s really NOT that impressive at all. Their playing wasn`t particularly good, the tune wasn`t that outstanding... but what can you do? Play a `classic` and everyone will fawn over you.

    And yes, I was singing along... :)

    ^^ Those are CELLOS! Not violins! *shakes head sadly*
    They were okay players, but seriously, that song was super repetitive and they were all about showmanship and less about the actual music. And it didn`t *quite* work. It would have seemed a whole lot cooler if the song had been shorter.They have great potential, though.

    It just wasn`t anything amazing.
    Within my highschool orchestra we have two cello prodigy -brothers-, them and another girl do this kind of stuff for our concerts and it`s much better.

    I loved it.. im a string player myself and tht isnt as easy an some people may think and the fact that they were so enthusiastic was great because it gives the song a better sound than if it was played dryly.

    WOW! I sure wish I had something good to say about `this`! It seems lately my comments tend to lean to the negative side, and I really do see the glass half full! The song was boring, there wasn`t anything amazing about the playing style of the cellos, and the blonde `person` really needs to invest in some one on one therapy. I played percussion instruments in a symphonic orchestra too, so I guess I am just a little biased.

    They think they`re rockstars.

    I gotta say, by cello standards, this song really doesn`t look all that hard, Although I`m sure the headbanging complicated things *snicker*

    I stopped watching the video and just listened to the music, which overall I thought was pretty damn good. As a former cellist myself, it`s stuff like this I wish they let us do in school... maybe I`d still play.

    I thought that was pretty mediocre actually. I expect high standards and originality out of contemporary musicians. I expect even higher standards for ones who play classical instruments. This was neither original nor highly impressive. It seemed like someone just invited these kids out there from a high school orchestra.

    Just because you stand up, make a funny face, and do some head banging, doesn`t make the cello cool.

    THAT WAS HOT! but anything the cello touches turns to hotness
    yayaya-it was repetetive-get over it! this was probably wasn`t arranged by them, why don`t YOU guys try rearranging an entire orchestral score just to cater to some randoms on the internet who don`t want to sit through the whole thing!
    plus, they spiced it up with the headbanging
    and it`s glammetal people! whats with all the
    "i expect this and that and it wasnt actual music"!
    wtf! this WAS about showmanship! there are thousands of wonderful expressive classical pieces out there to listen to if you want actual music-why don`t you go listen to some dvorak, shostakovich, or saint-saens if you want to listen to something that`s about the music-instead of coming onto IAB and expecting musical depth from a post that`s obviously for entertainment! seriously, if you want depth what are you doing on this site anyway?
    btw-pianoman, rostropovich is dead. i didn`t know if you knew or not.

    Batmanners, please use proper grammer. "They did good" is incorrect. Good is an adjective, you should use well, which is an adverb because you are describing the verb they DID. They did well.

    And some people on here are ignorant. Obviously few classical musicians or people who know anything about music. Some don`t even know the difference between a violin and a cello.
