Musical Notes: Path (Apocalyptica)

I had the privilege of seeing Finnish band Apocalyptica in 2008 at The House of Blues in Las Vegas. And oh, what a superb concert it was. A perfect size venue with a huge amount of musical atmosphere. Brilliant! For me, it is always so inspiring to see other classically trained musicians (the three cellists are all graduates of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki) make it in the rock and/or pop (or whatever derivative genre) music world.

I’ve always enjoyed their works and this one is no different. But what I quite enjoy here is the visual “mood”…their engagement with each other (or lack thereof) until finally, so it appears, Eicca Toppinen (front right) cracks a smile. Just watch the faces. Oh…the playing is great too!
