Apocalyptic, Epic, Finnish
Apocaplytica - Crazy Creativity
One of the most exciting creative Scandinavian bands is Apocalyptica from Finland. The combination of classical music instruments with hard rock and heavy metal music art is not everyone's cup of tea I reckon but you got to admit that it looks and sounds pretty awesome.
I like the Fins, having been there many times and having worked with them quite intensely over my years in Competitive Intelligence I grew on their many special ways of creative life style and crazy arts. Maybe it's the dark during the cold polar nights or the great outdoors they enjoy to the extend during the White Nights there.
Anyway, Apocalyptica seems to manifest what I cherish in the Fins when spending my time with my Scandinavian friends: sincerity, creativity and fun mixed with a tad weirdness and craziness.
