We are quite impressed by this face-melting version of what was once quite a relaxing little tune.

YouTube user 331Erock and certified metal axe-wrangler extraordinaire has turned Beethoven’s most famous piano work into a quite thrilling Dragonforce-style metal-classical bonanza.

As he states in the video’s description, ‘Hopefully Beethoven's not rolling in his grave haha.’ Wise words.
