Slipknot track gets chilling cello cover from band-inspired masked musician
One Slipknot fan has posted an amazing rendition of the band’s song “Devil In I” that they performed on a cello while wearing a mask.
The song is from the band’s 2014 album .5: The Gray Chapter.
The cellist wears a mask while giving the intense performance which incorporates both strumming and plucking on the instrument in a way that can only be described as hardcore.
