The Finnish group is up for Metal Album of the Year at Emma Gaala, the Finnish Grammy's.

The Finnish metal group already had quite the following but gained massive success this year with their album 7th Symphony. It all paid off because now they are up for Metal Album of the Year in their home country.

They gained a lot of radio attention with their hit "End of Me" featuring Gavin Rossdale of Bush.  They are also up for Music Video of the year.  Hopefully the guys can walk away with at least one.

Apocalyptica first caught my attention when I was in college and heard them do a cover of Metallica's "One" and it blew my mind.  These guys are finally getting the praise and recognition they deserve.  They will be hitting the Capital Region March 12, 2011 at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, $18 in advance and $20 day of show.
