Apocalyptica is a Finnish band consisting of three (formerly four) classically-trained cellists and a drummer.
Their specialty is heavy metal music on cellos, though they also play classical music.
They started by playing covers of Metallica, but once the concept became popular they wrote their own original works, maintaining the heavy metal influences on their albums Inquisition Symphony (mainly covers as well) and Cult.
Since Reflections, they have added drums to their recordings and live performances.
