Need a Break from Mozart? Try Some Heavy Metal

We all know the classics – Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart top the list of composers of some of the most beautiful and haunting piano pieces. But if you feel yourself falling into a repertoire rut, sometimes it’s necessary to take a break from the usuals and spice things up.

And that’s why we love coming across creative artists who take their craft on a unique path, such as Ukranian pianist Viktoriya Yermolyeva (or VK, for short). Her website and YouTube channel feature tons of awesome piano covers of Nirvana, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, and many other rock and metal artists. Ideal for the days when Mozart just isn’t cutting it!
