8 p.m., the Village. $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.

Apocalyptica's latest album, “Worlds Collide,” has generated high and heavy praise for encompassing the band's evolution while forging headfirst into uncharted realms. The four-piece from Helsinki, Finland, consists of three classically trained cellists and a drummer who deliver a rare flavor of metal, cello rock and classical. Other suggested genres include chamber, neo-classical and symphonic metal. Recent co-collaborators include Stone Sour/Slipknot front man Corey Taylor, Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia and longtime friend and collaborator Dave Lombardo, known far and wide for his Machine Gun Kelly footwork as Slayer's drummer. Nine albums and 11 years later, their lengthy tour brings them to Little Rock. With no scheduled opener (local DJ extraordinaire g-force is doing an all rock set to open up the show; apparently the band requires a DJ to open all of its concerts), attendees may be treated to a range of covers of the likes of Slayer, Pantera, Metallica, Rammstein and David Bowie, whose heartfelt classic “Heroes” is recorded on “Worlds Collide.” —Paul Peterson.
