There have been plenty of orchestral covers of popular music over the years, from those “String Tribute” albums to variations performed by various smaller configurations, sometimes focusing on specific instruments, like cello. Today comes something bigger – a full orchestra comprised of “some of L.A.’s finest session players,” tackling some iconic songs by the likes of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, TOOL, SYSTEM OF A DOWN and more. Metamorphestra is a brand-new orchestra, founded in 2016 by conductor Nick Proch, and they hit my radar thanks to a performance of SOAD’s “Chop Suey!” that took place at Capitol Studios. The clip comes as the orchestra seeks to crowdfund their debut album via Kickstarter. Check out the incredibly cinematic reimagining below…

The debut album, THE SHIP OF THESEUS is set to include new arrangements of songs from WEEZER, FLORENCE + THE MACHINE, MUSE, RADIOHEAD and more. Learn more about the project, and hear more music from Metamorphestra here.
