APOCALYPTICA RELEASE NEW EP “METAL CLASSIC, CLASSIC METAL” AND SINGLE “FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLEBEES”


The Finnish four piece Apocalyptica have dropped their very own Cello-Metal reinterpretation 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.
 
On the EP’s focus track, 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 it’s eye!”
