Last we checked in with Portland Cello Project, they were getting their hip-hop on with Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” They’ve now continued the trend, but mixed a little Jigga into the mix with their new cover of Jay-Z and Kanye’s collab “H.A.M.” It adds flutes, brass, and crashing percussion to the classical-gone-crunk blend.

They also recently took on a totally different, equally unexpected source with their cover of Pantera’s “Mouth of War.” They just posted a stunning live video that demonstrates, once again, that orchestras playing smash metal is never not thrilling. Check it out below.
