Twenty years from inception, the creators of Cello Metal are finally Australia bound with their combination of classical Finnish nuance and the sharp edges of neo classical heavy metal. The band is composed of classically trained cellists Eicca Toppinen, Paavo Lötjönen, and Perttu Kivilaakso (all three of whom are graduated of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki) and drummer Mikko Sirén.
Apocalyptica have mesmerized millions of both classical and heavy metal fans around the globe who have inhaled their striking sounds. The band’s latest release 7th Symphony has been touted as the bands most inspired release to date, with equal emphasis on beautiful melodies and heavy, bombastic rhythms. 7th Symphony guest stars many reputable artists whose reception may be staggering on the contrary, perfectly intone with the bands pedigree.
This is a metal event for the ages and one not to be missed!
