    Absolutely superb. They`re not carbon fibre, just coloured and varnished wood. And at the end of the day, i think the internet has taught us that ANY instrument can be cool if you rock the poo out of it and play something contemporary!

    Both of those things are already a common occurrence, theres a whole genre of metal dedicated to working with and incorporating orchestral pieces into the complete composition.

    My violin-playing girlfriend would be mortified by their bow use.

    There`s a huge difference between playing classical and playing rock/metal/etc. For a start, you put the good kit away and break out the cheap stuff. Using quality instruments for stuff like this is like taking a Ferrari to a destruction derby. You also need to play in a different manner, one which is pretty poor by classical standards. It`s right for this style of music, though.

    They also play classical, of course. You can`t play around with a classical instument like this without a solid foundation of learning how to use it. Their classical playing is completely different.

    I like both styles. The classical is greatly superior in artistry, but reworking rock and suchlike for classical instruments has brash vigour.

    Eh, yes and no Angilion.

    It does require a certain technique, but instrument abuse isn`t a necessity in doing so.

    I personally know a number of classical violinists who also play modern music just for fun, extra scratch, and for competitions. They play songs like these just as well (if not better) without abusing the bow or the instrument itself.

    I showed this to my girlfriend a few hours ago and she herself, being a professional violinist, admitted that they have a different technique, but "wow, that is a lot of hair needlessly being wasted" on the bow.

    "No amount of long hair, leather jackets, che guevara tshirts, thrashing about energetically or intense staring is going to make this cool. "

    ...Why? Because the song was played by cellists? I don`t see how it could be any cooler than it already is, it kicks ass. I don`t see your ass playing anything epic.

    Cellists are sexy, but these guys were too spastic, especially the one with the shorter hair. That, and I prefer classical cello. There`s certainly good rock cello out there, but they didn`t really take full advantage of the richness of the tone of the instrument in this performance.

    You`ve convinced me - I think that in addition to the different technique required, they were overdoing it to make it appear more dramatic for the video.
