Bass-Head Happiness Entry: Hall of the Mountain King

23 Mar

NOTE: Poopy-head powers-that-be-at-youtube pulled the vid for watching here. You can follow the link if you so choose. Or just go to youtube and search for Apocalyptica, Hall of the Mountain King.

Okay, cellos are not basses, but they are amazing. Plus, cellos are on the lower end of the musical scale. Shirtless men, not hard on the eyes, playing incredible classical music with a metal edge— Double win! And…Hall of the Mountain King is one of my favorite classical pieces.

The band in this video is Apocalyptica. Their sound is created by three cellists and a drummer. Can they play or what?

They’ve been around awhile (~1993). Their debut album centered on Metallica covers. During the years, Apocalyptica has worked with a variety of guest artists, including Corey Taylor (Slipknot and Stone Sour), Till Lindemann (Rammstein), Gavin Rossdale (Bush) and Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace).

If you are a bass-head, listen to more Apocalyptica. You won’t be disappointed.
