Formed in the early 90's, Apocalyptica chose an entirely individual path from day one. While students at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, these young virtuosos joined a cello band that specialized in playing music by everyone from Bach to Hendrix. However, Eicca Toppinen and his three comrades had something louder in mind. All fans of heavy metal, they decided to form their own band. Toppinen wrote some unique arrangements of songs by Metallica, Slayer and other metallic legends and the group embarked on a series of shows which culminated, somewhat unexpectedly, into the worldwide release and success of their debut album PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS. Apocalyptica have been embraced by a surprisingly large audience that contains everyone from die-hard metal fans to chin-stroking classical aficionados. It might seem a peculiar combination, but for the band the two genres have a logical and natural relationship. And so on to 2008, and Apocalyptica's brand new album, WORLDS COLLIDE. This is clearly the pinnacle of the band's steadily accelerating upward ascent; a dazzling collection of stunning mini-epics that touches upon every aspect of the band's history while introducing countless new ideas and unexpected detours to their unmistakable sound. Or simply put: A collection of great rock songs. WORLDS COLLIDE features appearances by Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace), Till Lindemann (Rammstein) & Dave Lombardo (Slayer).
