On May 10, 1996, Finnish Rockers, APOCALYPTICA, released their epic debut PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS. The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for the long time to come. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album, the group re-released it remastered with 3 bonus tracks on July 22, 2016.

Appended to this new version was brand new / never-before-released instrumental recordings of “Battery,” “Nothing Else Matters” and “Seek & Destroy.” The album is available on vinyl (2 LP set) for the inaugural time in many years.

PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS was a novel approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. Even more, APOCALYPTICA created their very own genre and set the foundation for a career that has lasted for 20 years so far with millions of records sold and sold out shows around the world.

APOCALYPTICA is returning to tour North America in major markets to do ‘a night with’ dates in support of the 20th-anniversary release of Plays Metallica By Four Cellos this spring.
