New (to me) Band

We had a band come and play for us at work yesterday. (We get this every week or two.) This was a Finnish band. Now, there's a few things you can be sure of, if a Finnish band comes to Hot Topic to play.

First, you know any blonds in the band will be naturally blond.
Second, you know they'll speak impeccable english.
Third, you can be sure they're a metal band.

Well, this band was named Apocalyptica and yes, the blonds were real, they spoke perfect english and they were a metal band. Cello metal. Yes, metal played with three or four cellos (depending on the song).

I'm not a huge metal fan, but for Apocalyptica, I'll make the exception. They were wonderful! My favorite songs were "I Don't Care", "End of Me", and "Not Strong Enough". I downloaded the whole album, so I may have other favorites to add by the time I'm done listening to it.

If you're intrigued by the idea of Finnish Cello Metal, you can check them out at Amazon or (company plug).


  1. oooh yeah. I've been an Apocalyptica fan for going on 10 years now. You should check out their version of Metallica's Unforgiven. Awesome

  2. Oh, cool! I'll have to check it out, thank you!


Thank you for posting a comment! I know that sounds a little needy, and maybe it is. I mean, I don't need comment validation to know that I exist, right? But I like to know that someone else (maybe you?) has read what I wrote and felt moved enough to reply. So, thank you.
