Apocalyptica: 20th Anniversary Expanded ‘Plays Metallica By Four Cellos’

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 3 bonus tracks [see the video for ‘Battery’ here] on July 22, 2016.

Added to this new version will be brand new / never-before-released instrumental recordings of “Battery,” “Nothing Else Matters” and “Seek & Destroy.”  The album will be available on vinyl (2 LP set) for the first time in many years.

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 will remain staying on the road supporting their latest album release ‘Shadowmaker’ until the end of 2016 with shows in USA, Europe, Australia and Latin America.

In 2017 the band will return with special anniversary shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PLAYS METALLICA BY FOUR CELLOS.
