Formed of classically trained cellists, the current lineup consisting of Eicca Toppinen, Paavo Lötjönen, and Perttu Kivilaakso (al graduates of the Helsinki Sibelius Academy)and drummer Mikko Sirén, Apocalyptica started out as a Metallica covers band, very much playing the novelty angle with their still musically superb record “Plays Metallica By 4 Cellos”.
As time went on, however, the band expanded their repertoire, adding more and more original songs into their lineup and finding that, rather than drifting away, their fanbase grew larger and ever more fervent. The original material was every bit as popular, if not more so, than the covers – in particular the bands’ artful collaborations with several massive guest vocalists on each album, including Sandra Nasic of Guano Apes and Ville Valo of HIM to name a few!!
Live, the band deliver a show unlike anything you have ever seen. It shouldn’t be possible to run around playing a cello and headbang at the same time, but Apocalyptica do it, and their performance is flawless. Prepare for a show that is truly unique – get your tickets to catch the Finnish neo-classical legends while they last!!
