    Default Metal versions of classical music

    There are many Metal guitarists (real metal, not the tr00 Kvlt kind) that love and like classical music. This inspires them to make high-tempo metal versions of Classical pieces.

    Here is one: Canon In D (with his own variations) by JerryC. This became a famous video on Youtube among guitar enthusiasts: Canon Rock

    Here is an article about it. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/27/ar...on/27heff.html

    Canon in D as metal? I always thought it was the original headbanging music.

    Kinda makes me wonder when someone will step up and do a thrash metal version of The Blue Danube.

    Well, I'm not sure about this. Was that sarcasm?

    Well, maybe just a hint of sarcasm. But Canon in D for metalheads...I guess I just don't get it.

    The Black Metal band Marduk (quite a well known one) reworked the themes from Night on Bare Mountain to create a proper metal song:

    and the thrash band Mekong Delta also performed Night on Bare Mountain but remained faithful to the original arrangement:
