Apocalpytica – “Wagner Reloaded – Live In Leipzig”
APOCALYPTICA – the ground-breaking Finnish orchestral rock group—have released (November 19) WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG (BMG), an epic live collaboration with the acclaimed MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra. The album’s release is perfectly timed since 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of iconic German composer Richard Wagner.
For WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG, APOCALYPTICA created new compositions based on Wagner’s body of work and his life, teaming with award-winning choreographer and dancer Gregor Seyffert to stage a brilliant and magical, cross-genre event featuring a live concert and theatrical production.
Since its inception, the Finnish cello-based heavy rock group APOCALYPTICA has been mining the classical form and structure creating compositions that are both unpredictable and unforgettable. From the Metallica covers that turned the music scene on its ear to 2007’s Worlds Collide–which saw the group collaborate with everyone from Slipknot’s Corey Taylor to Rammstein’s Till Lindemann and Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia—APOCALYPTICA have released seven studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals and vocal-based songs. They’ve explored styles from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms–their music has always been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.
