Since they formed in 1993, Finnish orchestral rock band Apocalyptica has released six studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals along with some vocal-based songs. Whatever styles they’ve explored – from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms – their music has been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.
Apocalyptica is proud to announce that Grammy awardee Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Deftones, Mastodon) is producing their new album. Eicca Toppinen: “Nothing better could have happened than Nick being on board for this record. The pre-production time we spent with him in late August gave us so much confidence and input for the new songs. We are all excited and overwhelmed by his energy and creativity.
The band has just arrived at the studio in Nashville to record the material for the upcoming release. Eicca Toppinen: “Having our singer (Franky Perez) with us for the last few months already made a big difference: For the first time we couldn’t get enough from spending time together at our rehearsal place in Finland but being in Nashville with all our instruments, Franky and Nick now makes us feel like little boys on Christmas. Writing and recording is taking a little longer than expected but I’m sure this will be one of the best Apocalyptica albums and we can’t wait to bring it out for you to hear.”
