what does everyone think about 4 chellos covering metal? i think the idea is way out there, but i have a lot good bit of classical background so i wanted to see what others thought.

Is it incest or masturbation?

It's not incest, but it's not masturbation.
It'd be closer to incest than masturbation, but I don't think there's a word for it.

Incesturbation?

I think it's pretty cool. Metallica's songs sound perfect on classical instruments, like they were written for them. I've listened to some orchestral arrangements of some of their songs and it's pretty amazing. Apocalypta's pretty good too, although I like it better with a full orchestra instead of just three cellos.

Yeah, I really like the idea. They can really play. I love their Metallica covers.
They're way underplayed.

Covering Metallica songs on strings was a shit choice. I would have gone for a string quartet Sodom cover band.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Apocalyptica are basically a cover band of all metal band (meainly Metallica). But as long as they keep the cellos heavy they seem alright.

Call me clique, but I hate how they're gettting popular. I can't help but feel that they have sold out a bit, with suddenly making an album using a ton of guest singers. And they're mostly more pop-ish singer, (i.e. Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace.) But I mean, I still like them so it's all good.

Great band, love some of their stuff, but, that song with Corey Taylor is waaaay overplayed

Also, seen 'em live. Pretty good concert.

Well, i enjoy listening to a classical music but cellos are not my thing.
Watch the guys on youtube covering Metallica on piano, now that imho owns Apocalyptica

All I have is Apocalyptica Plays Metallica By Four Cellos but I think they managed to make some beatiful and interesting tunes out of the old Metallica shit. And it's great fuckin' entertainment to sing along to such classic as "One" and "Seek & Destroy" at their live shows in finnish summer festivals.
