Weird of the Day: Deathgrind violin with Joey Molinaro


Joey Molinaro

Our buddy Folkicide told us to check out this guy Joey Molinaro who does something called “acoustic grind violin.” Intrigued, we clicked over to one of his YouTube and yep, this dude basically plays grindcore/death metal by himself with a just a violin, foot-stomp percussion and the occasional strangled vocal. The results sound like a cross between a mosh pit and a hootenanny, or maybe something you could call Appalachian folk metal. Check it out.

If, like us, you can’t get enough of this shit, there’s plenty more where that came from on Joey’s Bandcamp page.

  1. Violin is underrated in the metal world. You should check out Resolution15. Not as “weird” maybe, but a lot more musically sound.

  2. Very interesting post! Great chance to know something about violins! 🙂
