Listen/Watch: Arch Enemy’s “Nemesis” Covered on the Cello

  • Axl Rosenberg

Cello covers are all the rage right now. This latest one, of Arch Enemy’s “Nemesis,” comes to us from an Emil Werstler-lookalike who calls him Celloshredder. Honestly, I don’t like it as much as the cello covers we’ve heard from Raphael Weinroth-Browne (one of Opeth’s “Harvest,” one of Lamb of God’s “Walk with Me in Hell”). Weinroth-Browne’s talent is maintaining the song’s recognizability while making it sound like an honest-to-Amadeus piece of classical music; Celloshredder’s Arch Enemy cover, meanwhile, just sounds like someone did something slightly different with the lead guitars. Not as interesting.

Check it out below and see if you agree or disagree with my assessment:
