Agreed.

How the FARK did this not get greenlit?

Oh, and the drummer is Jewish. Rrargh.

Would have to agree with you FishyFred...that was totally awesome

See, now if the Devil's backup band had looked and sounded like that, Johnny wouldn't have had a chance.

Weird seeing them supposedly doing it "live", when there are at least two other tracks they laid down separately, which they aren't playing. I like it, don't get me wrong. I'm also a violinist. I just want people to realize there are 4 violins playing, not just the two you see.

I am going to disagree with you there.

Great job by them, they are hot too which is a plus.

I think I'm in love.

all they're missing is a middle-aged bass player to drive their van around and share motel rooms with on tour. wow, i play bass and i have a remarkable driving record.

What causes you to believe that 4 violins are playing? Show your work.

They clearly aren't doing it live since the drums aren't mic'd up at all. (nice drum sound though.)

Also, there are extra violin tracks: If you watch at 0:48 you see the girl in the blue dress dancing and not playing anything, but there is clearly one violin playing long notes and one playing pizzicato.

Doesn't change the fact that it's awesome. If it took 4 and there's only the 2 of them plus the drummer, then so be it.

Good, I was hoping to keep kosher.
I still say Apocalyptica is better though.

Hot, and very talented. Excellent find, Subby.

Now let's see if you can find any productions of Die Feen.

This video is shiat. I don't know what all the rest of you are talking about.

What over-produced tripe.

Cute chicks though.
 
2009-09-26 04:26:01 PM  
While I find it almost obvious that they aren't even playing the music I'm hearing, I find also that I could care less.

/would it it, sharp knees included
 
2009-09-26 04:29:13 PM  
One of them kinda looks like Serj Tankian.
 
2009-09-26 04:56:01 PM  
I'm not saying the video is bad, but I am saying that somehow the way it was made it has a lot of violin hero to it.
 
2009-09-26 05:04:46 PM  
The intro with that kind of electronic "plicky" sound makes me feel like I found a bonus level on Contra.
 
2009-09-26 06:00:41 PM

Not as hot, but soooo much more talented
 
2009-09-26 09:16:02 PM  
I farking HATE System of a Down, but that was remarkably cool. Actually, SoaD would be pretty cool without that whiny baby singer, so maybe that's why I like it.

Also, I don't remember anyone claiming it was live. It's a music video. You know, to go along with a studio recording. Much like other bands do. That doesn't make it any less cool. And to those of you saying "4 violins", do you realize how much multi tracking goes on in...oh, ANY other music? They made a good song, made a video to go with it, and released it to the internet, much to our fapping enjoyment.

Let it be and hope they make more.

I don't know how I've missed seeing those guys, but thanks correcting my oversight.

TFV is the closest I've ever come to liking anything by System of a Down.

There is no mention of "live" anywhere. If you read the YouTube description (RTFYTD!), you will see that there are "string arrangements" and it was "co-produced" and "recorded" by other people.

They played along to their pre-recorded music (hence, the other violin tracks). The video is them playing to their recording, which happens to be a cover version of another band. It's probably one camera with many takes/angles edited together later.

They are awesome live. Saw them at Ozzfest a year or so ago.

That drummer has quite a set of choppers.

I was under the impression that the blonde's violin was electronically pitch-shifted down into cello range.

It's good to know I'm not the only one with his priorities in order.

The first thing I thought of when I saw the thread was "Bond" (Check them out: YouTube) - but these girls do just fine on their own.

Very hot - music and otherwise. :)
 
2009-09-27 06:54:41 AM  
It was a music video, so of course it wasn't recorded live. The sound quality was way too good for an outdoor performance the way it was presented.

Is that bad? Of course not. The video was awesome and the music actually sounded great. I was most impressed by the lead violin playing the vocals.

This band should be called 'syndrome of a down.'

They suck in so many ways new words need to be invented just to describe the outer ring of how much they suck.

I think I like you.

And that drummer made my penis invert and puncture my spleen. What's the opposite of hot? umm... horsefaced? Yeah, that.

Um, I had 15 years of classical violin training and played with rock bands and symphony orchestras until I quit playing. If two violins are shown, and there are 3 or 4 violins on the audio track, I can sorta just tell, as could anyone with half an ear. I don't have to "show my work", as it is just a plain fact, as clear as my face in the mirror.
 
2009-09-27 11:32:54 PM  
Arrangement was pretty good, but it doesn't change the fact that anyone, even a hot chick, "rockin' out" with a violin pressed to their chin looks like a moron.
