APOCALYPTICA’s New Video For Cover Of METALLICA’s “Battery”

On May 10, 1996 Finnish rockers APOCALYPTICA released their epic debut, “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos“. The instrumental cello-driven rock opus changed the landscape of heavy music for years to come.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album, the group is re-releasing it remastered with three bonus tracks. Added to this new version will be never-before-released instrumental recordings of “Battery“, “Nothing Else Matters” and “Seek & Destroy“. The album will be available on July 22 on vinyl (2 LP set) for the first time in many years.

APOCALYPTICA‘s brand new video for “Battery” can be seen above.

Upon its release, “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos” was a new approach to the hits of the biggest metal band the world has seen. Even more, APOCALYPTICA created their very own genre and laid the foundation to a career that has lasted for 20 years so far with millions of records sold and sold-out shows around the world.

APOCALYPTICA‘s latest album, “Shadowmaker“, was released in April 2015 via Eleven Seven Music Group‘s Better Noise imprint.

The Finnish musicians — accompanied by their American lead singer Franky Perez — recorded the CD with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES, MASTODON).

APOCALYPTICA will remain staying on the road supporting its latest album, “Shadowmaker“, until the end of 2016, with shows in USA, Europe, Australia and Latin America.

In 2017, the band will return with special shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Plays Metallica By Four Cellos“.
