Apocalyptica

  • Apocalyptica is a Finnish cello metal band, composed of classically trained cellists and, since 2005, a drummer.
  • Three of the cellists are graduates of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. Their music features elements from classical music, neo-classical metal, thrash metal, and symphonic metal.
  • In 1996, Apocalyptica released their debut studio album, Plays Metallica by Four Cellos, which consisted solely of Metallica covers played on cellos.
  • Worlds Collide was released on April 15, 2008 in the United States. The first single "I'm not Jesus" featuring Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour from the "Worlds Collide" album cracked the top 10 of both the Active Rock and Alternative charts.
  • The band has played approximately 850-1000 concerts during their career in about 50 countries.
  • Their cover of Metallica's "Master of Puppets" appeared in the 2004 Metallica film Some Kind of Monster.
