Lindsey Stirling Goes Halo All Over the Place With Her Violin [CULTURE]

At this point, I think we're all familiar with "The Halo theme," the piece of composed by Martin O'Donnell that opens with monk-like chanting, before launching into a rock opera that we've all blasted a few Covenant aliens away to.

Never one to shy away from performing different piece of video game music, the world's first and possibly only dubstep violinist Lindsey Stirling stepped forward and gave it a try.

Lindsey is joined by accomplished ivory tickler William Joseph, and a small gathering of Spartan warriors out on the prowl.

With all that foliage, I know there's a Pillar of Autumn joke in there somewhere...

We learned recently that Steven Spielberg will be directing a live action Halo TV series, but apart from that, there's not a whole lot of "new" going on in the world of Halo, especially game wise. Just the usual multiplayer tweaks really.

Having shown mostly hardware with the recent Xbox One unveiling, Microsoft promised a lot more focus on games as soon as E3 rolls around. Halo 5 is one of those titles that Microsoft has confirmed to be in development for the system, so if there's any chance of us seeing it, it'll be at E3. 

As the second game in the so-called "Reclaimer" trilogy, it's rumored to be a significantly darker title, especially with the "death" of Cortana.
