Apocalyptica

Apocalyptica is a Finnish band consisting of three, formerly four, classically trained cellists and, since 2003, a drummer. Their speciality, called cello rock, is metal music played on cellos, though they also play classical music. They are all graduates of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.

Their first album, Plays Metallica by Four Cellos, consisted solely of Metallica covers. For their second album Inquisition Symphony, they added covers of Faith No More, Sepultura and Pantera, as well as three original songs. Cult followed in the same style of music.

I think I've heard most of their songs with guest vocalists and I find that I actually enjoy them. I thought Sandra Nasic sounded really good on the alternative version of Path and Bittersweet is one of my favourite songs ever. I think that Ville Valo's
voice sounds amazing and the only thing that spoils it for me is the bloke from the Rasmus - he sounds whingy and I don't like him at all. Apart from that, I love them!

Out of all the songs I've heard from them, I'd say the majority is overall pretty good. Although, there is a limit between intense, and too intense; especially with cellos. Sometimes it cn get to the point where I just laugh, where as other times, I fund
the song(s) to be quite nice to hear.

I also like the fact that their 'heavy' stuff usually incorprates some softeness, such as a violin.

Also, I've found that they're not too great on choosing good singers. I haven't heard ALL their songs which
include vocals, so I can't speak for the ones I have yet to hear. But for the ones I have... I just think using singers that can keep themselves on key, and actually sound like a woman instead of a man (when they are in fact, a woman ...(?_?)...) would do
them some good!

Much love,
Jenny
