After blowing away crowds with their dynamic and heart stopping shows on Soundwave 2015, Finnish classical-metal maestros Apocalyptica will be returning for a Headline tour this September! If there is one abiding truism that pervades art of every creed and style, it is that those with a unique vision are invariably the most likely to prevail. And as far as the fine craft of hard rock is concerned, few bands have captured a spirit of defiant individuality better over the last two decades than Finnish titans Apocalyptica.
Since their inception in 1993, the cello wielding quartet have redefined the boundaries between rock, metal and classical music in a truly unprecedented way: they’ve not so much rewritten the rulebook as penned a brand new tome all of their own. Prepare yourself for a night at the opera like no other. From windmills & riffage to tear jerking pin-drop moments and incredible feats of musicianship that will leave you speechless. You will be absolutely in awe of the sheer power emanating from the stage.
Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with APOCALYPTICA cello player Mikko Siren. He discusses upcoming Australian tour, playing at Soundwave Festival in 2015, European festivals recently released new album “Shadowmaker”. He also talks about interesting string of correlation between Metal and Classical music, playing the debut album in its entirety for upcoming European tour, plans for next album and much more.
