Saturday Spotlight…Vol. III

on September 15, 2012

Before I begin, my hiatus has been put on hiatus!  It seems that, through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl (my daughter, Erin), I am some sort of genius.  Not that I’m egocentric enough to admit it, but I seem to have struck a chord in her ever-growing psyche, which has made me the happiest man on the planet.

Because my little angel just happened to start her own blog (and gave ME a shout-out), my viewership increased threefold IN ONE DAY.  Exasperated by that particular piece of data, the only choice that I find myself with is that I better get moving on this while it’s hot.  [trinitythehedgehog.wordpress.com]

That having been said, this week’s Saturday Spotlight is about a group that I just recently fell in love with…Apocalyptica.  Now, before you get all nihilistic on me, let me explain.  The group’s name, although not a proper choice given it is 2012 LOL, is nothing compared to the style of music they play.  A band that got its’ roots playing Metallica covers…on cello!

This unique combination of cellos, four professional and well-respected musicians in their own right, together with the beat measured with a drummer (obviously) is nothing short of spectacular!  Picture Metallica again…on cellos…and you’ll know what you’re up against.  They have also had guest vocalists on original tracks that are simply phenomenal.

Songs like “I Don’t Care” (featuring Three Days Grace leadman, Adam Gontier), “I’m Not Jesus” (Corey Taylor of Slipnot/Stone Sour), “S.O.S. {Anything But Love}” with Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil, and “Helden” (featuring Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann), which is sung entirely in German are just a few of their stellar tracks.

Well, it seems like this is a good time to sign off.  I have taken up a little too much of your time but I thank you from the bottom of my heart…as I would not be here if not for you!  And, God willing, I will be around for a while to come.

      By the way, a friend of mine LOVES Rammstein and even has a picture on his phone of the album AND has a poster of the drummer. Which, in my opinion, is downright creepy looking. Possibly creepier than Lala Loopsies o.e (curls up in fetal position and sucks thumb) (Don’t judge! Those things are the DEVIL’S CHILDREN) 0.e
