      Since they formed in 1993, Finnish orchestral rock band Apocalyptica has released eight studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals along with some vocal-based songs. Whatever styles theyve explored - from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms - their music has been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.On May 10, 1996 Finnish Rockers, APOCALYPTICA, released their epic debut PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS. The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for years to come. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album, the group re-released and remastered the album in 2016 and added 3 bonus tracks.Added to this new version are brand new / never-before-released instrumental recordings of Battery, Nothing Else Matters and Seek & Destroy. The album is available on vinyl (2 LP set) for the first time in many years. Upon its release, PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS was a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. Even more APOCALYPTICA created their very own genre and laid the foundation to a career that has lasted for over 20 years so far with millions of records sold and sold out shows around the world. They have covered several well-known metal bands besides Metallica:Sepultura: "Refuse/Resist", "Inquisition Symphony";Faith No More: "From out of Nowhere";Pantera: "Domination";Rammstein: "Seemann".Apocalyptica featured many singers for vocalisiations of their instrumental tracks:Sandra Nasic (Guano Apes): "Path";Matthias Sayer (Farmer Boys): "Hope";Linda Sundblad (Lambretta): "Faraway";Nina Hagen: "Seemann";Marta Jandov (Die Happy): "Quutamo" -> "Wie weit?" & "How Far?";Lauri Ylnen (The Rasmus): "Bittersweet", "Life Burns";Ville Valo (HIM (2)): "Bittersweet";Emmanuelle Monet (as Manu) (Dolly): "En Vie";Matt Tuck (Bullet For My Valentine): "Repressed ";Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly): "Repressed ";Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour): "I'm Not Jesus";Till Lindemann (Rammstein): "Helden";Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace): "I Don't Care";Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil): "S.O.S.
