I think two of you above seem to misunderstand. I said myself that at a classical sense, I enjoyed their performance. But I came to the show to hear METAL. Not pseudo-classical music.

The band is 4 Cellos and a drummer. What did you expect? Distortion, Growls, and Blast beats?

Maybe blast beats

No, but most of it wasn't even symphonic metal, just "look at me I know music theory" pieces. The covers and two of their own songs later on in the set were the only songs that sounded metal whatsoever.

Haha.

I knew them originally only for their Metallica covers, then their original stuff, so I guess I knew what to expect from these guys. I kinda dig it. It gets old after a while, but good in small doses.

Small doses shouldn't cost the price of entry they had last night.

Apocalyptica come to Russia every year, and they play different venues every time. Last year they played at a fairly large club, and last night they played at some huge concert hall that's usually used for classical concerts. Needless to say, the price went up by a lot.

They come here almost every year too. Just never made an effort to see them. Your review is a big reason why.

You call that a review? Just a brief complaint/rant.

Trying to give you some positive energy is all.
