The four cellists have since become three, while a singer and a drummer have been added to the lineup, and the band's eight studio albums have sold more than four million copies. At SRF 2017 Apocalyptica go back to their...

In Sweden, where hair metal is alive and well and doesn't need to make fun of itself, Steel Panther are popular regardless. The reason is, obviously, that parody or not, Steel...
