Following the few past posts related to covers here’s another one. This time I bring to you two similar covers bands: Apocalyptica and 2Cellos.
Apocalyptica, actually, is composed with three cello players and a drumer, although the first formation was with four cellos only . The band is from Finland, formed in 1993. Their initial purpose was only to make a tribute to the Metallica band, but soon they opened their mind to other artists and genres like classical music, alternative metal, symphonic metal, etc… making other covers or even their own songs.
2Cellos, a very recent band comparing to the previus one, start their appearance only in 2011 with just two elements playing the instrument. Interestingly, they were able to show you how can recreate reliable and world-famous original songs, without losing the character behind it. Here I present one of the best known from this group.
