    I dig this:



    I used to listen to Flyleaf a lot, so seeing the vocalist from them combined with this band is pretty ok in my book.

    My short answer would be I don’t mind the drums.

    I do prefer the instrumental pieces that focus on the cellos.

    It occurred to me that a way of looking at them, especially the early work is as a very heavy (and amazing!) chamber group!

    The tracks where the cellos don’t seem to have as much of a chance to shine for me are the ones with the guest vocalists. I find vocals to be a distraction when it comes to Apocalyptica ... but then again I do like most of the songs with vocals on Worlds Collide as far a fully fleshed out songs go.

    I think Helden with Till Lindemann is on the awesome side. I don’t know why I didn’t take a closer look at the liner notes first but when I went looking for an English translation of the lyrics I discovered it was David Bowie’s Heroes!

    This is a heavy piece I dig from World's Collide!!

    TBH: I love these guys with or without drums.

    The new album Shadowmaker is pretty good so far.
