Metallica by Apocalyptica

Metallica fans, listen up.

If you are a fan of the cult number Nothing Else Matters by Metallica, you are going to love the cello version of the same by the Finnish band Apocalytica. I just got hold of a bunch of Apocalytica's Metallica numbers (guess some of you might already have this) after hearing about the same from some web community, and they are awesome.


Needless to say, just search the web for the audio/video. And once you get 'em, let your speakers blare as you just float in the music, coz Nothing Else Matters.

Update 1: An Anonymous commenter has this to say: "They are absolutely phenomenal - listen to their latest CD, the self-titled "Apocalyptica," and look for the new one to be released in 2007."

Update 2: I got hold of a track titled "Cohkka" in the album "A decade of Reinventing the cello". It is M-i-n-d B-l-o-w-i-n-g at full volume. Go beg, borrow or steal! [Do get your sub-woofers right before you attempt listening.]

Apocalyptica is a Finnish cello group, not violins. They are currently three cello-playing members, and one drummer.

They no longer do covers (Plays Metallica by Four Cellos was released over 10 years ago), but concentrate on their own compositions. They are absolutely phenomenal - listen to their latest CD, the self-titled "Apocalyptica," and look for the new one to be released in 2007.

Thanks anonymous. Have corrected my errors... didn't know these are so old. Wondering how I missed it all this time.

You're awefully late at recognizing their talent friend !

Get hold of the complete album ( Plays Metallica by Four Cellos ) if you can .. go through all songs they're simply mind blowing
I particularly like Creeping Death from it .. esp. the 'die, die by my hand' portion of the song .. sounds absolutely amazing in cellos

Baah! Now you guys are making me feel bad. I got some 6 or 7 of their metallica numbers. But will certainly check the creeping death one. I really love the way they carry the stuff...
