Apocalyptica Release Cover Of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight Of The Bumblebees”

Apocalyptica have released a cover of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight Of The Bumblebees.” This song is the final track from the band’s newly released EP “Metal Classic, Classic Metal.” That effort features a collection of “cello-metal reinterpretations of classical bangers.” Apocalyptica’s Perttu Kivilaakso commented:

“‘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!”
