The release of WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG is perfectly timed since 2013 marks the 200 th anniversary of the birth of iconic German composer Richard Wagner . For the live album, 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 ."

Watch the APOCALYPTICA interview about the making of WAGNER RELOADED-LIVE IN LEIPZIG :

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.
