Comment décrire ce groupe... je ne sais pas, mais tous leur ced sont bons alors. Un mélange entre la force et la puissance du classique et toute la rage du métal, c,'est du Appocalytica!

This was the first Apocalyptica album I bought and I'm glad it was. I find it to be superiour to Plays metallica by four cellos. The sound quaility is better and so is the content. They metallica covers are great but the originals are what I'm after, they shine brighter in my opinion. I'd reccommend this as a good start for up and coming Apocalyptica fans. It's a great metal instrumental album. These guys are revolutionary. This is a GREAT album.

What happens when you take four classically trained cellists who have a love for heavy metal? You get the group Apocalyptica. This group crosses the metal sounds of Metallica, Faith No More, Sepultura, and Pantera with the classical sounds of strings. I've always believed strings would make a good addition to a heavy metal group, and Apocalyptica did just that running their four cellos through distortion. The amazing thing about "Inquisition Symphony" is that there are no other instruments. The full, heavy and thundering sound is just four cellos. The ability to take true head-banger music and play it on the cello without losing any intensity is truly incredible. Eicca Toppinen, Antero Mannienen, Paavo Lotjonen, and Max Lilja are great musicians.
There is a great sampling of heavy metal on this album that is more than just a tribute to the heavy metal bands. The classic Metallica "Fade to Black" is so well played. The haunting melody carried on the undistorted strings of a single cello before the others join in bringing the weight of the song. This proves that Metallica does belong in a symphony hall. Another good example is "One". The song almost sounds like a classical piece until the crescendo of distorted strings mimic the staccato bursts of lyrics. But this album is just more than covers as Toppinen takes his hand at penning three songs here. There opening track, "Harmageddon" shows that Toppinen can head-band with the best of 'em. Opening with an airy beginning, he turns up the volume with a heavy rhythm and a clean melody playing over it. The two make a startling counterpoint. Later, "M.B." is another heavy song, which slows down in the middle for a slow, haunting movement as it slowly picks up speed back to heavy metal land.

This album rocks. I just can't find a word in the dictionary to describe this album. It is flawless, well rounded, irresistable, awesome, unprecedented album if u ever step into a music store. Buy this album. I'll give it a 2 thumbs up review.

Apocalyptica's first album was great, but I like this one even better. It's a little more electronic and heavier than the first and includes covers of three other groups in addition to Metallica. The best part, though, is the three excellent original compositions. These demonstrate real song-writing ability and allow the music to be tailored even better to the cello quartet. My one very minor gripe about the cover songs is that the voice part can become repetitive since there aren't any lyrics to provide variation. The original compositions eliminate this issue.

Wow! I just can't seem to stop being wowed by this group. Even though I heard this album after I had already listened to Cult, I was blown away. The songs "Nothing Else Matters" and "Fade to Black" were gorgeously arranged-two thumbs up to Eicca Toppinen for his wonderful work. Even if you own Cult already, I'd recommend this album because it shows the progression of Apocalyptica's music, and shows the heavy metal roots in the more darkly soulful music on Cult. I'd also like to commemorate the song "Harmageddon", the first single written by Apocalyptica's composer and arranger, Eicca, as being sterling silver. It was wonderful.

This album is great, whether you love classical or metal. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is because, once you listen to their newest album, Cult, and then listen to this, it sounds too shallow without the bass. Besides that, it is great.

Apocalyptica has accomplished the amazing feat of on the one hand demonstrating the musicality of heavy metal while on the other expanding the boundaries of the cello repetoire. For example, the arrangement of "Fade to Black," while absolutely faithful to the original Metallica, is heartbreaking lyrical, with the strong pizzicato underpinning the soulful, almost homely, melodic line. "One" is a bravura rendition of an apocalyptic descent into chaos; its genius is its interpretation of the drum line in the b section ("Darkness imprisoning me. . .") and the subsequent "guitar" solo, which is as powerful and disturbing as anything I have heard in any genre.
