    Sebastian Simpson and Chris Doig play "Allure of the Earth" on cello!

    I'm a good friend of Seb, and he's one of the best young cellists in Australia. We used to do Apocalyptica covers with a couple of other guys a while ago, but when I heard about this tribute album, I decided that Allure of the Earth was going to be a perfect song for an all cello cover.

    Seb plays all of the backing parts (which are REALLY hard!!) and I play the vocal melody. Even though he's a million times better than me on cello, I know the song a lot better than he does (I sing it EVERYWHERE!) so I did the vocal melody line.

    Feedback is welcome.

    :worship: That's just sick.......the cellos convey the feeling of the song brilliantly. You could drown in the sorrow of those strings..... Just really, really damned beautiful. I don't know what else to say :worship:

    I have to admit that I think Chris and Sebastien's version is BETTER than the original!!! :worship: I absolutely love what you guys did! + Your attention to detail is dead-on! :kickass:

    This MUST be heard!

    DG - \w/

    PS - someone make sure this gets played at my funeral when they lower my casket into the ground (HEAVIEST MOMENT EVER!!!). :heh:

    How strange! I hope it works tomorrow. Otherwise I'll re-upload it somewhere.

    Most humongous compliment ever. I'm humbled!

    That was excellant - it's one of those pieces that I can completely imagine in some soundtrack as main theme. Great work.
