A capella and headbanging go together like toothpaste and orange juice. Or at least that was true before the Serbia-based Viva Vox Choir decided to take on a cover of “Du Hast.” The German industrialist band Rammstein broke into the mainstream with the song in 1997, propelled by its assaulting guitar riff, swirling noises and a beat that sounds like it is being hammered out on a trashcan. This isn’t where vocal groups typically tread.

The Viva Vox Choir, though, arranged their own version for a show back in May in Belgrade and just posted a video. The choir chose to tackle a fairly complex song, and one that doesn’t obviously lend itself to performance by vocals alone. The group, however, does a spot-on rendition of the siren noises in the beginning; the choir here easily outshines the one featured in the original. Using only their voices, the Viva Vox Choir has produced a work worthy of the Headbangers Ball.

  1. Bravo ‘Viva Vox’!

  2. Hey, just dropping by to inform you that Viva Vox Choir’s YT account was hacked and all the videos were deleted, so we had to upload new ones — so we would be grateful if you could please correct the link in the embedded video. Thanks. :-)

    Greetings from Belgrade. ;-)

  3. This is awesome! I’ve heard about them; they have had about 700000 views of the original clip in just couple of days. Some serious stuff here, worth listening…
