Have You ever thought that Metal isn't only powerfull chords and loud epic vocals? True, it's more like a lifestyle, with it's bits and pieces. And Apocalyptica is certainly one of the pieces - and to be true - a really unique piece. Apocalyptica brings the lifestyle of metal in a classical form into the heads and hearts of the audience. They start the invasion of the unique classical arts with a really good idea - making classical metal by playing one of the Metal Classics - Metallica.
Out from nowhere they came and started something totally new. This album has the best from the many best songs of Metallica - the everrocking "Master of Puppets", the rather slow yet powerfull "outmentioning my own favorite Metallica song "the Unforgiven", that just is perfect in every element. And the guys of Apocalyptica with their overwhelming skills bring 'silently' the same mood and emotions to the ears of the listeners as does Metallica. With 'silently' I mean without any vocals in their musical tales. And that's the point I was trying to reach - these guys from Finland can create visions, scenes and pictures only with the help of the sounds from the cellos. Emotions are not laid in front of one - emotions build themselves up in ones mind - thus sometimes the lack of words and vocals can be a really positive aspect. Sad, but true. So they continue their quest that they've taken and whereever they may roam, people turn their heads and remember them, as Apocalyptica is singular in style and form.
Only two more tracks could be on this album and this would have been one of my true favorites - "One" and "Nothing Else Matters" - but as these tracks among more covers are on the following albums, I cannot really complain. A masterpiece of it's class, a classical tale told in an unique way.
