New York, NY (Top40 Charts) APOCALYPTICA -the ground-breaking Finnish orchestral rock group -will release WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG , an epic live collaboration with the acclaimed MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra , November 19 on BMG . The album's release is perfectly timed since 2013 marks the 200 th anniversary of the birth of iconic German composer Richard Wagner.

For WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG , APOCALYPTICA created new compositions based on Wagner's body of work and his life, teaming with award-winning choreographer and dancer Gregor Seyffert to stage a brilliant and magical, cross-genre event featuring a live concert and theatrical production. "We've been asked many times to do this type of project, but this is the first one we got excited about," explains APOCALYPTICA's EICCA TOPPINEN. "The mission was to celebrate Wagner, we took elements of his life and used his original music and rearranged it," TOPPINEN adds. "It was like writing a score for a movie, I had a list of themes and I had to think about the length of scenes and write the music while envisioning Apocalyptica performing on a massive stage with the symphony, choir and one-hundred dancers."

Since its inception, the Finnish cello-based heavy rock group APOCALYPTICA has been mining the classical form and structure creating compositions that are both unpredictable and unforgettable. From the Metallica covers that turned the music scene on its ear to 2007's Worlds Collide -which saw the group collaborate with everyone from Slipknot's Corey Taylor to Rammstein's Till Lindemann and Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia - APOCALYPTICA have released seven studio albums featuring numerous cello-based instrumentals and vocal-based songs. They've explored styles from atmospheric interludes to fast, battering rhythms-their music has always been gripping, dynamic and full of melody.
