Apocalyptica


As I said yesterday, Live For the Kill was a good segway for this post. Why? Because near the end there's an instrumental piece that can't help but to stand out. That was Apocalyptica. Apocalyptica is a band that is made up of four brothers playing Cellos. They started off by covering Metallica songs, and over the years have performed with many bands, and have created their own songs. Some with lyrics (Using guest vocalists/musicians) and some without. Bellow, is a sample from their first album, and a couple from their latest.

What's better than The Unforgiven by Metallica? The Unforgiven played on cellos.

These next two tracks are from their release last year, 7th Symphony. This one is The End of Me with vocals by Gavin Rossdale from Bush.



And lastly we have Broken Pieces with vocals from Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf.

  5. The cello has such a rich sound on its own. Four of them... I've never heard anything like it before. Thanks for sharing that.

  6. Love these guys... Ever hear their version of "In the Hall of the Mountain King" ? Ridiculously slow build, and the payoff is fantastic.
