Classic Rock Magazine takes you back in time for a look at how AC/DC classic Thunderstruck could have been performed by a pair of cellists in the 17th century. And the video below even suggests how audiences of the era might have reacted.
It’s the brainchild of 2CELLOS – Luka Sulic and Stjepan Huaser – and it’s already gone viral, notching up over 2,500,000 views in less than a week.
And the best bit is, like any great piece of music, Thunderstruck stands the translation into a completely different style without losing any of its energy and intensity.
If AC/DC really are thinking about recording a new album starting in May, perhaps it’s time to call in a couple of guests.
Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2CELLOS are back with a new music video and a brand new album.
The music video for their first single is a powerful and intense rendition of AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ featuring guitar great Steve Vai. “Our fans love this song at our live shows and we really wanted to add it to the album,” says Stjepan. “It was very exciting to work with an amazing musician such as Steve and we really want to show the people that the cello can rock as hard as the guitar!” says Luka.
The new album, entitled IN2ITION (pronounced Intuition) is produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER, KISS), and is set for international release on January 14, 2013 through Sony Masterworks.
