Description

Since they formed in 1993, Finnish orchestral rock band Apocalyptica has released eight studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals along with some vocal-based songs. Whatever styles they've explored – from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms - their music has been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.

Apocalyptica started as an outlet for Eicca Toppinen and three of his classically trained classmates at the prestigious Sibelius Academy. Three years later, they released their 1996 debut, Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos, a potent 8-track set of instrumental Metallica covers including revelatory takes on warhorses like "Master of Puppets," "Creeping Death," "Enter Sandman," and "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)."

Toppinen explains, "When we made the first album, our expectations were, ‘Okay, if we sell 1,000 copies and get a few shows, that's cool.' Then, we got the requests to play a lot of shows after the first album and the sound changed totally."
