Apocalyptica is a metal band from Helsinki, Finland formed in 1993. Originally formed as a Music/{{Metallica}} tribute band, they recorded their first album, ''Plays Metallica By Four Cellos''. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The title is not a joke]]. For their first three albums (their second being a tribute album to other heavy metal bands such as Music/{{Pantera}}, the third an album of original songs,) their line-up consisted of four cellists. They then played at a festival of which Music/{{Slayer}} was headlining. Dave Lombardo, a fan of the string quartet, asked them if they knew any Slayer and, upon finding that they do know how to play Slayer, asked them to join him for a short set, telling them to give him a call if they ever needed a drummer. When one of the members quit in 2002, they called up Lombardo for their fourth album, ''Reflections,'' though he did not remain as their main drummer, he contributed to their next two albums before officially leaving in 2007. Lombardo is not the only member of another band they have worked with and have collaborated with various vocalists, most notably Music/{{Rammstein}}'s Till Lindemann, HIM's Ville Valo, Music/TheRasmus's Lauri Ylönen, Stone Sour/Slipknot's Corey Taylor, [[Music/{{Gojira}} Joe Dupalantier]] and [[Music/DirEnGrey Tooru "Kyo" Nishimura]]. They were also featured on melodic death metal band AmonAmarth's album ''Twilight of the Thunder God'' for the song "Live for the Kill" and have played sets with Rammstein and Kivilaakso appeared on four tracks from Music/SonataArctica's album ''The Days Of Grays''.

* AntiLoveSOng: Lyrically, "Anything But Love" details a female character talking to the man who is going to rape her. She essentially tells him to be as cruel and evil as he wants ("Go on infect me, go on and scare me to death.") and make sure she is traumatized and scared. Because she'd rather that than have him love her.
