Unlucky Morpheus is one of those uniquely Japanese metal bands. Jill, one of the group’s six members, has been working on replicating Eddie Van Halen’s famous “Eruption” solo–on violin. Wow.

    This god dammed incredible!!! Thanks very much, almost made me tear up. I LOVED Eddy. He was epitome of ‘tight’. Unlike Hendricks and Page…pure slop. I HATE slop. This woman is super cool!

    That was definitely the most impressive and the most demonstrative skill of a true master of the violin. It was truly an honor to watch her perform.
