APOCALYPTICA Releases Video For “Stormy Wagner”

Monday, 16th December 2013

Finnish orchestral rock group APOCALYPTICA have premiered the new video for “Stormy Wagner,” featured on the band’s just-released live album, Wagner Reloaded – Live in Leipzig, for which the band teamed with the acclaimed MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra. The album’s release is perfectly timed since 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of iconic German composer Richard Wagner.

It’s complex to record a live album with an orchestra, because there are so many lines, microphones and there’s one stupid drummer, who beats the shit out of the drums and creates so much noise that everything is spoiled afterwards,” laughs cellist Eicca Toppinen while nodding to drummer Mikko Siren. “It’s a challenge, we prepared well in advance, and Sven Helbig, the orchestrator, did a great job in making it run together, it works.”
