I liked it. It sounds great, and its real metal to the core, even if it is orchestral instruments rockin' the sound. They do the Metalica sound justice.

Never actually realized that thrash metal translates well to strings.I'm a fan of both classical and metal and have always felt thde two aren't mutually exclusive. This album proves that premise

Some albums that cover other genres with classical instruments end up being very gimmicky. Apocalyptica, however, obviously loves Metallica's music and does an excellent job of arranging it for a cello quartet without losing the original mood of the songs. This album sounds more acoustic than their subsequent, and equally-good, Inquisition Symphony, which gets more electronic and heavier.
Occasionally, the voice part gets a little repetitive since there are no lyrics to provide variation between identical passages, but overall it's a very satisfying album. It should appeal to both metal lovers who are interested in a different take on Metallica and to classical lovers who like their music heavy. Cellists (like me) may find a new appreciation of the capabilities of their cello.

By Brian Ashe TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 28 2009
Format: Audio CD
This is a good intro to Apocalyptica, basically four guys with cello and occasional percussion playing classic Metallica. In later albums, they play some of their own compositions, many of which are actually (should I say it?) better. Cellos with and without electrical enhancement sometimes sound just like electric guitars, and that's boring after the novelty wears off. But in the songs where the cellos are allowed to sound like real (acoustic) cellos, the music takes off, the melodies and harmonies speak for themselves, and Metallica emerges as a group that composes real music.

Four stars, not five, because yes, we know that electric cellos can be made to sound like electric guitars. But well worth listening to.

I've played the cello for 9 years, but I never knew that a cello could sound that awesome! Apocalyptica really changes the whole stereotype that cello's are boring, "orchestra" instruments. This brings a whole new touch to cellos, and music, and it sounds INCREDIBLE together!!!

I never thought that Metalica could sound good on cello's. The cd is soooo good. Its one of the most amazing cd's ive have listened to. The lead cello player is just amazing. I never thought a solo played buy kirk hammet could be played on a cello. The Cd is the great so if your thinkig about buying it then BUY it.

I used to be a non-metallica fan, but till i tried this album, i simply can't believed how great this album is. This album is irresistable, very cool, and 2 tumbs up for this four cellos artist.

I can't believe what I have discovered here. Im so blown away. I don't even like Metallica that much. Yes there is something special about Metallica though. They have this dark, almost medival sound that you must listen carefuly for. Nobody else has that. This band Apocalyptica captures it completely!!! Better than even Metallica can!! Its like a band has taken another bands music, and perfectly, beautifuly spelled out for you what you love about it!!! I was skeptical at first. Sounds so corny. 4 Cellos play white trashy metal. But.....its amazing. Keep an open mind. It is note for note. Listen to it for the darkness. Very ancient sounding, almost religious. Once in a while you discover something really special. It doesnt happen often because there are no resources like Mtv for great music. Only crap. This is special.
