Finnish cello-based heavy rockers Apocalyptica want to be remembered as the band that brought balls back to heavy metal and the band that did so in a unique way. Since its inception, the band has been mining the classical form and structure, coming up with something totally unpredictable and utterly unforgettable. Twenty years into an inimitable and formidable career, they are still reinventing themselves and finding new sources of inspiration. That's not easy to do! "As a musician, I can't think about Grammys or selling this or that amount of records. That can't be the goal of this job. We are focused on the main thing, which is making music," Apocalyptica's Eicca Toppinen said. "I can't say we are the only ones doing that, but at least we do it our way." That's the mission statement and the infallible goal of Apocalyptica – to do the music they want to do without rules or regulations or parameters.
