Apocalyptica绝对是个非常特殊的组合，1993年由4位毕业于芬兰西贝流士音乐学院(Sibelius Academy)的四位大提琴手，突发奇想之下组成了这个团体，并开始以四把大提琴改编翻奏一些曾为Thrash Metal龙头乐团Metallica的经典作品。
1995年底，Apocalyptica受邀至赫尔辛基的一间重金属俱乐部Teatro做演出，这也是Apocalyptica首次正式地完整演出Metallica的作品，包括Master of Puppets和Creeping Death，而Apocalyptica的演出不但引起轰动，也立即吸引到芬兰当地厂牌Zen Garden Records的注意，并很快地为Apocalyptica带来一纸唱片合约！
辗转几年间，Apocalyptica已经发行了他们的第七张专辑《7th Symphony》。7th Symphony is the seventh studio album by the Finnish cello metal band Apocalyptica. It will be released on August 23, 2010 in Europe (August 20, 2010 in Germany), and August 24, 2010 in the U.S. Released three years after their previous album Worlds Collide, Apocalyptica has stayed with the tradition of having 4 tracks with featured vocalists, the remaining tracks will all be instrumental. Dave Lombardo of Slayer will once again be featuring on drums, on the track entitled "2010". The first single "End of Me" with Gavin Rossdale of Bush on vocals, was premiered on Finnish Radio Ylex on June 7, 2010. It will receive radio playback from June 28th, 2010, and its release date is set on August 6, 2010 in Germany. The track "Bring Them to Light" was originally written for Worlds Collide, but both Duplantier and Apocalyptica were unhappy with the original, and so they decided to re-work the track, and re-record it for their next studio album.
The album is available for presale on their official website in two versions. The original album contains 10 songs as opposed to the limited edition which includes 12 songs (additional tracks being "Through Paris In A Sportscar" and "The Shadow Of Venus"). The limited edition also includes a bonus DVD with filmed acoustic recordings from a session at the Sibelius Academy in Finland, recorded on June 4, 2010.
