Vitamin String Quartet Perform Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight

By 23

Release Date: 7/28/2009 Winning Grammys and going multi-platinum was only the starting point for Linkin Park. After revitalizing the nu-metal genre, the band took everyone by surprise with a politically charged album of punk, classic rock and hip hop called Minutes to Midnight. From the rage of “Bleed It Out” to the driving melodies of “No More Sorrow,” The Vitamin String Quartet trades decks, drums, and guitars for viola, violin and cello and translates the now-classic songs into vigorous orchestral arrangements. This is one interpretation every Linkin Park fan must hear.
