Since 1996 and the release of their debut album, "Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos," Apocalyptica -- graduates of the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Finland -- have been developing a style that is tough to put a name to... 'Heavy Cello Mayhem'? 'Rock'n' Resin'?! ... The possibilities are vast, but whatever the latest tag, the fact remains that never before had a group of classically-trained cellists, metal fans to a man, attempted to fuse together the seemingly disparate worlds of classical music & hard rock ...of Prokofiev & Pantera ... Shostakovich & Slayer ... to seek out the middle ground between the mosh pit & the orchestra pit, the dinner jacket & the denim jacket, whilst being 100 percent respectful to both camps.
