jesus christ, this is the awesomest thing ever.

 

apacoliptica

 

WOW! Who says an orchestra doesn’t have fun. This was a blast.

 

One word….AMAZING!

It’s not often (or ever) that you get to see three Cello players thrashing heads like a speed metal band!

I’m not very impressed. They are good but it’s just “different” for they instrument style, nothing ground breaking in technique or execution…and a crappy 80s song to boot!

Other then some young dudes trashing their hang and trying to do justice to a silly pop song, I seen nothing worth watching here.

Make not how dorky they look at times and the adult contemporary musicians in the back snickering at their antics at times!

A song doesn’t have to be a technical showpiece to be good. It’s a fun song played in an interesting arrangement by a bunch of guys who are having a genuinely good time playing it. That should be enough. Take your elitistism elsewhere.

 

Go get a life shawn while u at it change the nappy, the song is a classic so doesent justify your worthless comments only shows how ignorant you are about music!

 

uh, just to tell you (jackass) they just happen to be famous, apocolyptica, the ban who made Im not jesus, a very famous song indeed, so dont just say they are some “young dudes” they are more sucessful than you will ever be

Shawn, that 80’s song is actually really cool! Apocalyptica is famous! I play the cello and I’m an ardent supporter of the instrument. I’m sorry, is ardent to big of a word for you to understand?

 
 

I disagree with you Shawn, Final Countdown is a great song and this is a unique take on it.

 

i loved it because it reminded me of GOB from arrested development

 

As much as I wanted to think was awesome (being a big arrested development fan, and professional musician), Shawn is right, it’s just not very impressive. Moderately funny, maybe, but not really anything special. Their solo sections were not bad, but not in time with the rest of the orchestra.

 

loved the guy’s facials.

 

If anyone wants to hear more metal cello check out Apocolyptica

QFT 😀

 

For the search engine users among us, it’s “Apocalyptica”, although the misspelling “Apocolyptica” will be recognized as such by most search engines.
I’m afraid “apacoliptica” is a little too far off to work, though.

 

That’s not live

if you liked this, also check out “Vitamin String Quartet” – they do tons of string covers.

 

Some of you guys hate on this way too much. I thought it was pretty damn good. Not mind blowing by any means, but not total trash either. I watched it all the way to the end and was entertained, what more can you ask for???

 

omg!!! wtf?!?!?!
headbanging w/ a cello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Luv it, Luv it, Luv it!!!

This is not the band Apocalyptica (which is one of the greatest metal cello band existing) but the band Melo-M (not bad at all but not oriented to metal)

 
 

I enjoyed that. I’ve always loved the tune of that “silly pop song”.
Seriously, it’s entertainment, You guys need to chill and just enjoy it for christ sakes. It’s not gonna kill you to think something is entertaining save the technical bull plop.

Hey! I love this arrangement of the Final Countdown…
This year, our cello section is the strongest one of our orchestra, does anyone know where I could find this arrangement or and orchestral one of Final Countdown similar to it?? We could do it this year, its just a matter of finding the music! 🙂

 

I was compeletly surprised, wasnt been in my country so long, even didnt know they exist there. That band called Melo-M actually.
They are class.Super guys.

 

That is REALLY not fair!!
I’ve been playing for roughly 7 years and am NOWHERE near as good as them!
EXCELLENT JOB!!

 

Obviously not Apocalyptica… These guys don’t deserve to even be mistaken as them.

 

Everyone is busier than you are. Did that catch you off guard? When I interact with someone I do my best (and it doesn’t always happen) to think this (changing “you” to “I”). It helps to keep me from saying, “I’m so busy…”

oh my goodness me! That was as amazing as when I first saw it 3 years ago! I think my head would explode if I even thought of simultaneously playing cello and swinging my hair around like that; either one of those alone would take up almost all my concentration.
