Apocalyptica One Year On

Last  April  I went to see Apocalyptica in what was one of the weirdest gigs ever but also one of the highlights of the year last year.

This month their tour supporting Sixx A.M. kicks off with string of gigs around the U.S. and Canada.

Sixx A.M.’s Modern Vintage was one of my top albums of last year and Shadowmaker, released in Europe tomorrow, sounds classic already.

Apocalyptica release their new album, Shadowmaker, tomorrow and from the tracks available on Spotify so far they sound to have nailed it with their sound. Funnily enough their album cover is pretty similar to Modern Vintage.


Loved their show last year and really hope bring the whole package to Europe, especially Finland, very soon. They have performed recently on Voice of Finland TV show.

Check out tracks from their latest album here. I don’t know whether their sound is developing at all over the past few albums but they have a tightness and very high level of professionalism that you can hear in their sound. They are undoubtedly good at what they do.

And they have certainly come a long way from the days of being a Metallica cover band.

Here is their video for Cold Blood. I look forward to more.


Are you going to see this tour in states?
