Bristling with an epically baroque life and energy, Cell-0, the ninth studio album by Finland’s multi-Platinum cello-rockers Apocalyptica, will be released on January 10, 2020 via Silver Lining Music.
To celebrate this huge news and off the back of their current Australian tour, Apocalyptica have delivered a brand new single and video titled “Ashes Of The Modern World”. This powerful video was directed by the award-winning Finnish photographer/videographer Ville Juurikkala who has worked with a wide variety of prominent artists from Guns N’ Roses and Aerosmith to opera singer Andrea Bocelli.
“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.” – Cell-0
The recording of Cell-0 followed a four-year break between albums that gave the band – Eicca Toppinen, Perttu Kivilaakso, Paavo Lötjönen, and Mikko Sirén, all of whom are classically-trained musicians – a fresh perspective and affected the way they approached the new music. Cell-0 is the quartet’s first instrumental album in 17 years and found the musicians challenging themselves to discover new flavours and colours in their respective instruments.
