This week in unexpected but shockingly accurate covers, we bring you a cover of Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed” on a cello. That’s right, the popular track from Iowa-based metal band Slipknot now comes to you on a Rob Scallon-esque cover, and it works surprisingly well!
This cover comes to you from the appropriately-named YouTuber Celloshredder, and showcases a young man (presumably the very same Celloshredder we just mentioned) just going to town on this classic heavy metal tune. He nails parts that you wouldn’t expect would be possible on a cello, and something about him just makes you unable to look away. He is beauty, he is grace.
