Finnish cello rockers APOCALYPTICA have dropped their very own cello-metal reinterpretations of classical bangers with the new EP “Metal Classic, Classic Metal”. Release day also sees the band unleash the focus track “Flight Of The Bumblebees”, originally by Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow.

APOCALYPTICA‘s Perttu Kivilaakso states: “‘Flight Of The Bumblebee’ is one of the most well-known virtuosic pieces. I have played it during my classical years many times, always aiming for faster and faster performances. This time I thought it would be the coolest thing to make a rough and heavy ‘Bee’ for our band, basically creating the slowest and most doomy ‘Bumblebee’ ever! It’s fascinating how musical structures can work out in many various ways! This ‘Bee’ is heavy and angry, but surely flies out with a smile on her face and a blink in its eye!”

“Metal Classic, Classic Metal” also includes a new version of Beethoven‘s “5th Symphony” as well as a remake of Maurice Ravel‘s “Bolero”.

APOCALYPTICA will tour the U.S. extensively in 2022, as well as play multiple summer festivals, among other dates, before hitting Europe with the aptly named “Epic Apocalypse Tour” alongside EPICA and WHEEL.
