Rachel Barton Pine Brings Metal Intensity to Classical Music

If pressed to come up with the metal version of classical music's "Big Three", Brahms, Beethoven, and Bach, violinist Rachel Barton Pine, a performer who's well versed in both styles, has got it covered.

"You can't leave off Sabbath, because they were the first metal band from which everything derived, but for me, I'm a thrash girl, so Megadeth, Anthrax, and early Metallica," the violinist laughs. "That's my music."
