APOCALYPTICA picture
Apocalyptica is a band from Helsinki, Finland consisting of three classically-trained cellists and a drummer. Their specialty is heavy metal music on cellos, though they also play classical music.

They started in 1993 by playing covers of Metallica, but once the concept became popular they wrote their own original works, maintaining the thrash metal influences on their albums Inquisition Symphony (mainly covers as well) and Cult. Since Reflections, they have added drums to their recordings and live performances and have since released seven studio albums, the most recent of which is 2010's 7th Symphony. Although much of their music is instrumental many Apocalyptica songs feature a guest vocalist.

APOCALYPTICA Reviews

APOCALYPTICA Cult

Album · 2000 · Symphonic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
aglasshouse
Ah, Apocalyptica. Never will you ever degrade, only will you get better.

Apocalyptica is a three-piece cello metal piece that, in all reality, pioneered the symphonic metal genre in it's purest form. This is literally the definition of a metallic symphony accept without the orchestra.

The instrumentation of these guys is absolutely awe-inspiring. I've never been a cello enthusiast myself but when I did hear them for the first time a few years ago it almost made me want to learn the damned instrument. This one of the many albums that Apocalyptica has released, and most likely the most complex and innovative for the band. They combine insane string shredding to make up for background noise and having a melodic front-leading cello to pull of the more loopy and almost solo-style quaverings. 'Fight Fire with Fire' is an excellent example of this.

Another style that these geniuses incorporate is soundtrack-style symphonic metal, in the sense that if you slapped Cult on the big screen for some Michael Bay flick (or not probably), then it would go perfect. And as for me, I've always loved the majesty of soundtracks, especially ones that go great on their own as well as being spectacular for the film background music. The great thing is that Cult isn't a soundtrack but sounds like one and seems to have an escalated level of achievement and skill.

If you are a fan symphonic, chamber, soundtrack, or even classical music you will at the VERY LEAST find this one intriguing.

Although not exactly comparable, I think this is a better idea and much prefer this to Metallica's own S&M, which was a good idea but in practice sounded like a sloppy metal band battling it out with a symphonic orchestra without any interesting results. On this debut release by APOCALYPTICA they simply play classic Metallica songs on 4 cellos. All is performed amazingly well.

The entire album is instrumental and there is no percussion so in effect it is one cello each covering the vocals, two guitars and bass of the original songs. All cellos are acoustic and nothing here is amplified so i'm not sure if this really counts as metal but it certainly has the intensity.

I wouldn't want to hear several albums of this sort of thing but this one has kept me interested for quite some time now. All of the song choices are good but I lean toward the ones of the albums I like best from Metallica of the 80s. Wisely the group decided to add percussion and write their own material after the success of this album.
