Get Ready for the Apocalypse!

Who knew the cello could rock so hard? New to Oxford Public Library's music collection is Amplified by Apocalyptica. Not your typical string quartet, this band is perhaps best known for their instrumental covers of Metallica's hits. But they do other, more classically-inspired songs as well--with a metal edge, of course. Check out their head-banging rendition of Hall of the Mountain King. You may forget you're actually listening to music played on instruments typically reserved for orchestras. A bonus disc features vocals by some of today's hottest metal bands. You can find Amplified in the Hard Rock drawer of the library's newly re-organized music collection. Why that category and not "classical"? Check it out today and find out!  --AJL
