The third studio album from the internationally renowned Croatian classical/pop duo consisting of savvy cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the self-produced Celloverse offers up 13 spirited slabs of rock-infused, classical crossover mayhem that are as elegant as they are downright fiery. Tracks include rousing renditions of rock hits from the likes of Iron Maiden ("The Trooper"), Radiohead ("Street Spirit"), Muse ("Hysteria"), and AC/DC ("Thunderstruck"), the latter of which segues into Vivaldi's Cello Sonata No. 4 in E minor. A deluxe DVD version of Celloverse is also available, and includes performances of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (Nirvana), "Smooth Criminal" (Michael Jackson), and "Welcome to the Jungle ("Guns N' Roses").
