Apocalyptica Premiere “Rise” Video

Apocalyptica have premiered a new video for their new song “Rise.” This track is from the band’s new instrumental album “Cell-0,” which will be released on January 10.

Director/writer Lisa Mann worked on the clip with cinematographer Jason George and had the following to say about it:

“The idea was to make a video that was whimsical and captivating, that would transport the viewer into an alternate dimension that mirrors our society and today’s importance of compassion and empathy. Characters in this world fall and rise again, and ultimately come together to help each other rise.”

“Apocalyptica’s music is timeless, very emotional and cinematic, and we wanted the ‘Rise’ video to reflect that.”

Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen added the following about the song:

“‘Rise’ is a statement of hope, there is always a brighter side, no matter how dark or hopeless things seem to be. To believe in good and beauty, staying true to yourself and not giving up on that.”

Apocalyptica Premiere “Ashes Of The Modern World” Video

Apocalyptica have premiered a new video for their new song “Ashes Of The Modern World.” This track is from the band’s new instrumental album “Cell-0,” which will be released on January 10.

The group said the following about the new record:

“It is tough to express without lyrics, but in ‘Cell-0’, we found particles of our universe previously unknown to us. Millions of notes combine to create music just as millions of cells combine to create life, and when you visualize the whole thing, similar patterns appear.”

Eicca Toppinen added:

“These new songs have so many layers and are so complex, and it’s not always easy to point exactly what they are about. But I think that’s also the beauty of instrumental music, that the listener always can feel free to experience the same songs in very, very different ways. It’s also one reason why we don’t want to explain the songs before they’re experienced.”

Apocalyptica Sign With Silver Lining Music

Apocalyptica have signed a new deal with Silver Lining Music and are planning to release their new instrumental album through the label in early 2020. The band commented:

“We are excited to learn how a slim record company structure plus all the marketing instruments of perhaps the biggest metal music powerhouse (with festivals, touring business, merchandise, etc) are set up for 2020. This feels like the absolute right company for the times we are in. We are very excited about our new album and we have the strongest belief that Silver Lining is the right partner for our music.”

Apocalyptica Cover Sabaton’s New Song “Fields Of Verdun”

Sabaton have shared Apocalyptica’s cover of their new song “Fields Of Verdun.” The track will appear on Sabaton’s new album “The Great War,” which will be released on July 19. Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström commented:

“I watched Apocalyptica’s show in Madrid last year and I was blown away by the magic atmosphere they created. This made me excited to see what these fantastic musicians could do with a Sabaton song! And what would be more fun than to let them record their version of a song not yet released?”
