One of the most interesting things I’ve seen on the live stage since beginning this little media journey of mine would have to be the band Apocalyptica. I mean who ever would have imagined a Heavy Metal band made up of mostly cellists and a drummer? Not me that’s for sure and I am happy to say that I’ve been a fan since I first heard them covering Metallica so many years so. Now the band has announced a brand-new US tour and their bringing along Lacuna Coil so check out the scoop down below. I’ll be back at the close.
