Here’s What Megadeth Sounds Like on Violin

As I told the tipster who led me to Doralice’s Rusted Pieces — a violin/acoustic guitar duet covering five tracks off Megadeth’s Rust in Peace — this kind of shit is a metal website’s bread and butter. 

And it’s especially nice when the music itself is not just a quirky take on some thrash classics, but an actual transformation that the diehards can still identify, while sounding just as compelling to the washed masses. 

Recorded by Kowloon Walled City frontman/part-time tipster Scott Evans, the above video for “Hangar 18” is a good taste of what the duo has been able to pull off — a sparse, technically dextrous reimagining that may even win over the horrible jerk who wrote the song in the first place.
