WORLD-FAMOUS CELLO REBELS ANNOUNCE NEW LIVE ALBUM:
“APOCALYPTICA PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS - A LIVE PERFORMANCE”
OUT DECEMBER 7th, 2018
Two decades ago, Apocalyptica’s career-defining album “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” was released, selling over 1,5 million copies to date. In celebration of the 20th anniversary, the band is honoring the release with the current “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” world tour. Featuring four cellos and a drum set and Metallica covers only, show stopping highlights are hits such as “Enter Sandman” and “Master of Puppets” as well as emotional encores like “Nothing Else Matters”.
Just in time for the tour break, Apocalyptica are announcing the much-anticipated live recordings “Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos – a Live Performance” to be released as a 1DVD+2CD Digipak as well as a digital album version in December 2018. The DVD delivers the band’s full two-hour concert at the renowned Finnish Savonlinna Opera Festival in the breathtaking scenery of Olavinlinna Castle, featuring previously unreleased Metallica covers. The accompanying CD/digital (and later vinyl) formats present the band’s slightly heavier rock flavor, displayed at one of the band’s three sold-out shows at the iconic Tavastia Club in Helsinki in September. This year’s release will be followed by a lavish 1DVD + 3LP + download code package dropping in 2019.
