Heroes – Apocalyptica @ Circus

I last saw Apocalytica about a year and a half ago, performing with a chamber orchestra. Jump forward to 2015 and they have a new album and a full time singer on board. How would they fair in a rock venue?


Support by The Blanko, another Finnish band, this gig was a real rocker. It was chockablock downstairs but we ventured upstairs for the first time.

The Blanko

There were good views, no queues for the bar or toilets so it was definitely a good vantage point.

They rattled through their set with great aplomb, the only real stand out was for a bad reason: They played the Angry Birds theme.


They did make up for this though with 3 Metallica covers..

  1. Master of Puppets
  2. Seek & Destroy
  3. One

They played a lot, unsurprisingly, from their latest album: Shadowmaker.

A good gig, enjoyed a lot – sponsored by Bombay Sapphire Gin 🙂


You can see their set list here: on setlist.fm & their support’s set list too.

What was your highlight?
