February 16th, 2021

With so much music being created and uploaded on the internet daily, it is such a pleasure when you find something that takes you to a different dimension.

Sure, we have great modern music being released daily nowadays but for most people, old music is still the best. Maybe it is because these songs bring out familiar feelings of nostalgia. Some can even trigger a certain memory with just a single tune. These feelings made it impossible for people to leave the oldies behind, whatever generation they were born in.

This Swiss group brought out an enchanting tune by transforming an iconic classic.

“Nothing Else Matters” was sung and written by the metal band, Metallica.

This song appeared on Metallica’s self-titled fifth studio album, and it remains one of the most popular songs they ever made. It was originally written for one of their bandmate’s girlfriends, but eventually, it became a song dedicated to their fans. People have been so captivated by it over the years that they started creating their own unique takes of the song, including this duo.

In front of a sepia-colored background, the tux-wearing gentlemen brought a vintage theme to their performance.

Every string they pluck, they pour emotions that only they and their instruments can understand which clearly resonates with their souls.

However, some can surely relate to the emotions these musicians are trying to convey in their arrangement.

Although they started off slow and soothing, they gradually build up intensity as the song progresses.

Wait until you see the cello player pour every ounce of passion into the strings!

It was as if he was breaking out of his shell while the guitarist followed suit, almost as if he might snap the cords of his instrument.

After a minute of an intense and wild refrain, they abruptly paused and transitioned back to the gentle melody in the same tone as they started the song.

They loosened their grips on the frets, knowing that they were approaching the song’s haunting finale.
