Apocalyptica and Orchestra

On March 21st Finnish cello band Apocalyptica will rock Lithuania! This won’t be their first visit to our country however it will be exceptional because for the first time in band’s history they are touring with prestigious Finnish orchestra Avanti! One and only performance will take place in Kaunas, at Žalgirio arena.

Apocalyptica is one of the most original bands of the world and it might surely be called one of the most respected bands. Seems that no one could predict such a future for them, even themselves.

At first the band consisted of four cellists of Sibelius academy: Eicca Toppinen, Paavo Lötjönen, Max Lilja and Antero Manninen. In 1993 these four youngsters were noticed in one club where they performed Metallica’s covers. Three years later they expressed their love to this legendary hard rock band by releasing their debut album of greatest Metallica covers Plays Metallica by Four Cellos.

Two years later the band presented their second studio album Inquisition Symphony. Besides traditional Metallica covers the album had new versions of the songs of such bands as Faith No More, Sepultura and Pantera and three original compositions created by Eicca Toppinen himself. And this was only the beginning.

During their career the quartet played more than 1000 shows in fifty countries, released 7 studio albums that were sold in more than 4 million copies. Apocalyptica collaborated with famous artists as Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Gavin Rossdale of Bush, Ville Valo of HIM, Till Lindemann of Rammstein etc. The band is very much appreciated for their masterly combined classical and rock music. In their hands the cellos sound as solo, acoustic or even rough electric guitars; they perform bass or drum sounds and even imitate person’s voice.

The only performance of Apocalyptica and chamber orchestra Avanti! in Lithuania will take place on March 21st at Žalgirio arena, Kaunas.
