I never really considered the mandolin something capable of funk, but this has got me thinking.

Is this thing really far more versatile than people think? I'd love to see outcome of a couple of electric-acoustic mandolins with a few decent/interesting pedal boards.

Metal? ... no

listen to some jerry garcia with david grisman work, they use the mandolin very well

Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

you can totally shred it up on mandolin, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKs5lOKvblU

the same band also does a folk-death metal cover of "You Are My Sunshine" with mandolin

I play Mandolin a bit but I never broke out of the folk/rock thing with it. Worked with a fiddler once who loved to jam blues and old rock with delay and overdrive pedals. Wouldn't work for Mandolin as the beast has almost no sustain.
I pick up my guitar and play

My friend and I recorded a metal ballad a couple weeks ago just for fun. I played the guitar, and used my effects pedal to make a nice drum pattern, he played the bass and did the vocals.

After recording it, I went over it and added some Mandolin in there, and even a mandolin solo.

It sounded pretty interesting, to be honest.

Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 FR Limited
Parker Mojo Fly

Tanglewood Evolution
LaPatrie Etude DEMO
'66 Hagstrom Viking I (customized)

Listen to Rush's newest album Snakes and Arrows.. There are several Mandolin solos in there, and they sound awesome.
