APOCALYPSE ORCHESTRA (SWE)


Territory: World Wide


MEDIEVAL FOLK METAL
Lodged between medieval times and modern metal, Apocalypse Orchestra weaves a faceted tapestry of music. The tones of ancient drone instruments entwines with heavy guitars and music separated by over 800 years meet.

With a foundation of original music and lyrics but also incorporating melodies from as far back as the 11th century the goal was to create a musical homage to a bygone musical era. The songs tell of flagellants, plague doctors, tales of hell, the meaninglessness of war and of suffering; they are all chapters in the bands grimoire. To balance it out they also shine a light on medieval art, science and enlightenment.

The quintet’s debut album, The End Is Nigh, was recorded throughout the latter half of 2016. The drums were recorded at Studio Overlook by William Blackmon (Gadget, Beardfish, Isole) and the rest at Studio Bordun by the band. Per Nilsson ( Scar Symmetry , Zierler, Kaipa) mixed the record at Studio Kabyss.

'The Garden Of Eartly Delights' music video has gained over 17 million views on Youtube and over 3 million streams on Spotify.

Currently the band is working on some new material and together with HMH planning the next steps for the future - which will difinitely be bright.. or should we say it better - as dark as one great medieval path can be!
