Watch This Killer Violin Cover of Slipknot’s ‘Unsainted’
It's been a little while since we've seen Slipknot covered on an unusual instrument, and today has broken that dry spell — a killer violin cover of "Unsainted" has just surfaced on YouTube.
M Drako is quite the metal violinist, as her channel features a ton of metal covers of songs from bands like Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold and more. Now, she's added Slipknot to the mix with her cover of "Unsainted." It's actually a great choice of a song of theirs to start with, being that there is a choir in the intro.
Even still, it makes for an intriguing sound combination as the song picks up in aggression. Watch M Drako crush "Unsainted" below.
Aside from "Snuff," have you ever heard Slipknot sound so gracious? So elegant? It's truly captivating.
"Unsainted" was the first single off Slipknot's latest album, We Are Not Your Kind, which topped the charts immediately after its release on Aug. 9. The band just finished touring last month, and will pick back up over the next few weeks with a headlining slot at Aftershock Festival, and a South American run to follow. See tickets here.
