    Seems they've done this with a good amount of bands these days. There's even a disc coming out soon with a string quartet playing Rush tunes.

    Oh hell yeah, those guys are great. I love it when people do this kind of stuff and it's done very well. This would be absolute garbage if they weren't such great players.

    Much like this would be utter garbage if it wasn't done so well:

    Heard them and have a couple of their CD's...Very good stuff. I was very impressed.
  7. The only song I've heard by them is Master of Puppets... They did a great job with it; so different and yet faithful to the original (except for that insane guitar solo). Not exactly one of the "slower Metallica songs" though ;)

    Yup, some song of theirs with singer of Guano Apes was up in Finnish charts couple of years ago.

    The guys are all Finnish but that's pretty predictable - we are all as crazy down here :p

    I think their version of One is AMAZING. I think it works incredibly well.
