Excellent heavy metal music using the cello
Apocalyptica – Reflections - 2003 – Nuclear Blast
Apocalyptica play mostly at mid-pace, with the fastest and most upbeat track being “Drive.” Seemann, a Rammstein cover, is the only song off this album with vocals, done by the so-called “Mother of Punk” Nina Hagen. Although I wouldn’t call myself a Rammstein fan, hearing one of their songs done mainly by cellos with a female vocalist was very interesting, in a good way. My favorite song is probably “Toreador II,” which has a bit of a Spanish flavor to it. Overall, this album is something very different from what most metal fans are used to and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. If you like bands such as Silent Stream of Godless Elegy and Haggard then Apocalyptica is right up your alley – otherwise I would encourage you to try it but I can’t guarantee you’ll like it.
