The return of Apocalyptica

FINNISH hard-rock string quartet Apocalyptica has recently started a European tour with its fourth album entitled Reflections. The band will perform in Bratislava PKO park on February 25 at 20:00.

The four Finnish cellists - Eicca Toppinen, Max Lilja, Antero Manninen, and Paavo Lotjonen - say there isn't a sound that they can't create on their cellos.

They founded the band during their student years and started by playing Metallica songs. Their repertoire has been broadened by performing and arranging compositions by Sepultura, Pantera, and Faith No More, as well as works composed by band member Toppinen. This will be the third time the long-haired rockers visit Slovakia.
