Apocalyptica

March 29th, 2011 by Cobwebs

I have a suspicion that the long winter nights in Northern Europe tend to subtly warp its inhabitants, because an awful lot of truly weird stuff seems to come out of Scandinavia. Amongst these is Apocalyptica, a metal band from Helsinki featuring a trio of classically trained cellists. Because when I think of metal, “cello” is certainly the first thing that pops to my mind.

They have a channel on YouTube, although all of their “official” videos have had embedding disabled (which sort of subverts the point of YouTube, to my mind), so the example below was uploaded by a fan. You can also buy their MP3s on Amazon.

They’re certainly…unique.
