A gimmick band turned out to suck? What a shock.

I saw Apocalyptica earlier this year, and I went because I wanted to hear the classical style, but with a metal twist on it. Sure, it's not metal at all.... But it's got that classical style, with a harder edge to it. It's an acquired taste, honestly. Not everyone will like it, but those who do, really love it. But if you went to an Apocalyptica show, expecting to hear metal.... You obviously haven't listened to them much, and that's just... kinda your fault. Not really anything wrong with that, you just went to a show thinking they were one style of music, but they were another.

Apocalyptica is way more than a Metallica cover band now. People don't go to their shows for the Metallica covers. Their fans are more into their original pieces, and the general sound they have. The covers they do now are mostly for their own fun, since that's how they started off.

While you may be right about me not checking out their catalog enough before going, by no means did I not expect classical pieces. I just wasn't expecting SO MUCH of it to be classical.

I spent five years in a music conservatory, so I do like what they're playing when they aren't covering Master of Puppets, but that said, I was hoping for a bit more of metal rather than classical music.

Apocalyptica is a classical style band. And apparently, it works for them. Metalheads expecting a metal show buy tickets, without looking into their discography. Same can be said for their album with all the guest singers... They get these rock radio fans to buy tickets based on these few songs they heard on the radio. I can't blame them for it, gotta pay the bills somehow. And classical doesn't cut it these days lol....
