The musical phenomenon of "crossover" has become more and more prevalent and is a refreshing change from the compartmentalization of music genres.  The Finnish cello quartet known as Apocalyptica has been a proponent of this concept, using classical instruments to play heavy metal music.  Using that as a springboard, the multi-talented Brian Balmages applies his magic touch to this string orchestra piece that dips into the heavy metal cauldron with syncopated ostinato rhythms, quarter note triplets over sixteenth note arpeggios, glissandi and aggressive fortisimos, among other things, after a reflective opening.  It is fun, boisterous and completely unique.
