With this curious album the metal genre is brought to classical music's nursing home for a visit, to catch up on old times and wonder about the metamorphic journey which led one into the other. Metal's classical roots are amply understood by now, and I imagine if Beethoven were alive today he'd most likely have Metallica on his iPod, but Apocalyptica are in the here and now and they've brought their virtuosity in classical playing to a generation of greasy, head-banging, tinnitus sufferers. Me, in other words. The album features eight cover versions of classic Metallica songs spanning their 20-odd year career. If you haven't heard Metallica before, or if ... Read the complete review

Metallica tracks played by four guys on cellos - this is a concept that really shouldn't work, heavy metal played on instruments exclusively used for classical music. However, it does work, and it works very well. The first time I hear The Unforgiven I knew I knew the track, but I couldn't place my finger on it. I played it to my mother in law and she loved it, even said it would sound nice at a wedding as a song for the first dance - imagine her suprise when I said it's a Metallica song!

I must warn readers first of all, for those who are Metallica fans will either love Apocalyptica for their innovative cello covers, or will dislike them for not being heavy enough. This 1998 album is what got Apocalyptica noticed in the first place, as these covers added a totally new dimension to extremely famous metal songs. The music made famous by electric ...

The Divine Wings Of Tragedy: Special Edition - Symphony X - Incredibly detailed songs Won't appeal to fans of less heavy-going rock, or other musical styles
Abandon - Deep Purple - A couple of good tracks and the live album 'Total Abandon' rocks Not up to the usual standard, I was dissapointed.
Burn - Deep Purple - Some decent music being played Bland lyrics and Coverdale's voice irritates me
Worlds Collide - Apocalyptica - 'Last Hope' is good, thrashy, old-school Apocalyptica. The band is all too happy to abandon its identity.
Eclipse - Amorphis - Skilfully combines the band's disparate styles under a talented new singer. Over-reliance on slow, gothic rock pieces becomes tiresome.
Dreams Like Deserts - Aura Noir - Classic early black metal... ...that arrived ten years too late.
