Firstly I'd like to say, having seen some of the reviews for Apocalyptica's first album, I was appalled. Hearing the unbelievable wealth of sound that these guys get out of their cellos, how could anyone say these sibelius academy graduates are anything but brilliant?
For me, they are best when doing slow and mellow songs, on this album notably 'Nothing Else Matters', 'Fade to Black' and 'One'. Breathtaking.
Of the more traditional thrash covers, 'Domination' deserves a mention, not least because they actually play the solo!!
'From Out of Nowhere' comes across as being a surprisingly deep and wonderful piece of music - a very pleasant surprise.
Of the pieces they have written 'Harmageddon' is my favourite, with some fantastic sounds (using harmonics) in the introduction, then breaks into something powerful (yet at times almost melancholy) that takes full use of the beatifully layered harmonies they can create.
Overall, there is some great music on this album. It is played by four brilliant cellists who can milk the pieces for all they're worth! I'd say a must-have for any thrash or classic metal fan, and a worthwhile purchase for anyone who is intrigued by the prospect of cellists playing heavy metal music.

Four men with cellos prove that classical and "metal" music can exist together. Probably louder and more agressive sounding than the original Metallica & Sepultura songs they cover on this album Apocalyptica are fabulous. But they also include some of their own compositions, so don't dismiss them as just a "cover" band. This album is the most original and fresh sound we've heard in years. If we could give it more "stars" we would.

Introduced to me by my beautiful dutch girlfriend, Apocalyptica have created something even more poignant and simultaneously hard-hitting with their cellos than most bands can do with a 20k rig and everything modern musical technology has to offer. Their masterful hands manage to harness all the power of the songs they cover, adding enough melancholy to 'nothing else matters' to bring a tear, along with a fantastic delicacy and beauty to the pieces they do the honour of covering. Their own pieces are equally impressive.I need six stars to do this album justice. Do yourself a favour-buy it.

Apocalyptica have produced a tour de force of emotion and mood with this collection. At times I found that I had to close my eyes and sit back to take in the breadth and depth of what is being served up.
If you want to experience classical instruments played with passion then this cd will give you all that and more.
