Apocalyptica (Finland)

This week featuring Finland

APOCALYPTICA

Apocalyptica is an extremely unique band formed in Helsinki in 1993.  The band is composed of three classically trained cellists and a drummer (no lead vocals).  In 1996 the band released their debut album which consisted solely of Metallica covers played on cellos.  Their second album in 1998 featured Metallica covers as well as various other bands covers.  Apocalyptica has released seven more albums which contain original material, covers and some lead vocals of singers such as Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace and Corey Taylor of Slipknot.  Their latest album “7th Symphony” featured the guest vocals of Gavin Rossdale of Bush.  This is a creative band melding different genres and creating a heavy hybrid style of their own.
