Take the music of Metallica. Definitely something to be impressed by in the first place, Metallica has created some of the best songs ever made. Now take four cello players from Finland who play Metallica’s music. Does it sound like it’ll end up cheesy? Yes. Is it? Definitely not.From the opening track, “Enter Sandman,” to the closing, “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” is an excellent album. The best song on the album is “The Unforgiven,” which sounds so good on the cello, it’s hard to believe. These guys seem to have a guitarish quality while playing their cellos. The cellos actually do sound like guitars at some points. No matter what the critics say, “Master of Puppets” will also be another one of my favorites on this album, just because it sounded so close to the original and because the ending is so damn cool, you can’t help but say this, “These guys rock.”Apocalyptica is a group of four very talented cello players. One listen and you’ll become hooked. This sounds even darker than Metallica’s own music with the absence of percussion on some of the songs. This is an amazing album that’s quite worth the money.
