I play as a hired gun with these 4 cellists, and in 3 months we'll have this gig at the other side of the country (really important school stuff, it's worth a lot of credit). But the bandleader is lazy and hasn't picked any songs. We want to play rock/hardrock/metal something along the lines.

The catch is that since there's bass (electric), 4 cellos and drums picking songs is difficult, we want to avoid everybody doing the same line. (I recommended Iron Maiden, for example) and there's also the issue that cellos are tuned CGDA, keep that in mind.

Could you help me pit? this is really important. Some song recommendations would be awesome.

Before I got in the band the played ONLY Apocalyptica for quite a while, and they are tired of it. And Apocalyptica usually uses one or two voices and the rest are just doing the same.

pick some songs you all enjoy and find either a)a cello quartet arrangement of it, or b)have someone arrange it for you.
