Apocalyptica is a Finnish cello metal band, composed of classically trained cellists and, since 2005, a drummer. Three of the cellists are graduates of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. Their music features elements from classical music, neo-classical metal, thrash metal, and symphonic metal.
Apocalyptica released their sixth studio album, Worlds Collide, on September 17, 2007. To the surprise of many the album includes a cover of the German version of David Bowie's song "Heroes". Till Lindemann of Rammstein, for whom they opened on the Reise, Reise tour, was the guest vocalist on the track "Helden". This album, Worlds Collide was released on April 15, 2008 in the United States.
To end 2007, the band toured Europe successfully, selling out many of the venues they played. They were directly supported by the gothic metal band Lacrimas Profundere.
Apocalyptica announced a large world tour for 2008, so far including concerts in Europe, North America and Mexico. They have sold over two million albums to date.
In June 2008, during the Rock in Rio concert in Lisbon, Apocalyptica joined the Greenpeace "energy revolution campaign" and played the Beethoven 5th symphony from the stage.
