Check out Apocalyptica’s Exclusive Video Interview Below.
An interview at the Rock on the Range music festival in Columbus, Ohio.
The Finnish act, Apocalyptica, has a sound like no other and they rocked a sold out crowd at this year’s Rock on the Range festival. The band got its start in the 1990s as a Metallica cover band, but members Eicca Toppinen, Paavo Lotjonen, Perttu Kivilaakso, and Mikko Siren are also classically trained musicians. Now the quartet, and often many others, deliver what they call “cello-metal”–a sound based around the classical instrument, with rock, metal, and folk influences.
