Apocalyptica’s new video for Sacra looks, at first glance, a lot like one of the other million time-lapse tribute videos Youtube is famous for, but it’s not. Well... it actually sort of is, but it’s still pretty cool. I enjoy the occasional time- lapse film (like this one of a guy driving cross country in four minutes, which is actually also a music video) and what else could Apocalyptica really have done? Four cellos in a white/black warehouse and some aggressive angles? Four cellos in the forest with some unseen evil lurking in the shadows? Four cellos in a bar with beer bottles flying everywhere and some girl sexy dancing around them?
No, I think not. I like this just fine.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Apocalyptica’s latest record 7th Symphony, where you’ll find Sacra and nine other tracks of cello-y goodness, out now on Jive/Sony Music.
