APOCALYPTICA will enter the studio next winter to begin recording the long-awaited follow-up to its 2015 album, "Shadowmaker".
The Finnish cello rockers have spent most of the last two years touring behind the re-release of their epic debut, "Plays Metallica By Four Cellos". The remastered version of the instrumental cello-driven rock opus contains never-before-released instrumental recordings of "Battery", "Nothing Else Matters" and "Seek & Destroy".
In a brand new interview with NorthJersey.com, APOCALYPTICA's Eicca Toppinen said that the band is "super hungry to get into writing new music in the studio next winter."
"Shadowmaker" was APOCALYPTICA's first album to feature just one singer — former SCARS ON BROADWAY guitarist Franky Perez — instead of guest collaborators. The disc was recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES, MASTODON).
Prior to enlisting Perez, APOCALYPTICA released eight albums that melded the classically trained cello mastery of the three core bandmembers with the harder elements of the rock world, including drums and guest vocalists, such as Gavin Rossdale from BUSH and Corey Taylor of SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR fame.
