In May of 2009, two violinists and a drummer recorded and shot a video as an audition tape for America’s Got Talent. That video, a cover of “Toxicity” by System of a Down, was uploaded onto YouTube and went viral shortly thereafter with 3 million views in just a few months. Still gaining views and fans, it is currently over 11 million views today.
In response to the overwhelming number of hard rock and metal fans who enjoyed “Toxicity” and wanted more, violinist Jennifer Lynn created THE VIOLUTION with an endeavor of covering hard rock & metal tunes performed with only electric violins, electric bass and drums. Recruiting recording and touring professionals on bass and drums, the live act screams!
Answering the question the sound of that amazing electric violin: “No, it’s not a guitar.”
