As a proud former band geek, I love hearing an orchestral fusion with some of my favorite songs.
Of course, whereas I played saxophone and was just trying not to trip on football fields across Middle Tennessee, the Metamorphestra is a symphony comprised of musicians using their craft to blend fully-symphonic composition with songs that we hear on the radio. And doing a heck of a job at it if I say so myself.
Their debut album The Ship of Theseus is available at their website here, and it includes their re-imagining of songs from RATM, Muse, Tool, Radiohead, and more.
Check out the video of them doing “Toxicity” from System of a Down, and check out their YouTube channel here for more!
