On May 10, 1996 the Finnish rockers released their epic debut Plays Metallica By Four Cellos. The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for years to come.

Upon its release, Plays Metallica By Four Cellos was a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen.
