This is by far my favorite apocalyptica song. It's hard to make songs without vocals and this band pulls it off perfectly

wonderfulll, that's all i can say, sway to the music, llet the wind pick up and ur hair let loose, lose all the problems u have and let the music's emotion invaded ur very being. that's all i do when i listen to apocolytica.

Interesting comment, Stu Laine Rutledge. The song defiantly has a melancholy feel.

This is both a reference to the stroke of the strings and the attack of the brain.
I always listen with a slight sadness in my heart, because my grabdad had several strokes during his life and eventually died from one.
I once asked him what one felt like and he described it as like being hit in the head with a boulder and having some weird dream where you eyes or open, which is exactly waht this song makes me think of... :/

In my opinion, this is Apocalyptica at their best. And for your info, this band has no guitars nor violins. Only Cellos :)
