Apocalyptica is a Finnish music band consisting of three (formerly four) classically-trained cellists.

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 and Cult. With Reflections they somewhat deviate from their previous cello rock.
