* {{Instrumentals}}: Apocalyptica does almost entirely instrumentals. It helps that they don't actually have a vocalist in their lineup and all of their songs with lyrics are sung by guest vocalists.

* MrFanservice:The band actively plays to this trope, most often playing on stage shirtless just to please the fangirls. This was particularly evident with Eicca in the early days, though he's put his shirt back on and Perttu Kivilaakso has taken the role.

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 Music/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''.
