The album will feature eight instrumentals plus four tracks with guest vocals including the first single “End Of Me” featuring lead vocals by Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale. In addition, producer Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, Creed, My Chemical Romance) returns for production duties on two tracks on the forthcoming album.
The conservatory-trained musicians of Apocalyptica(three of whom are graduates of the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki) started playing Metallica covers in 1993 and in 1996 they released their critically acclaimed debut Apocalyptica Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. But it was 2007′s Worlds Collidethat broke the band into an international phenomenon. The disc featured numerous guest stars. Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor appeared on “I’m Not Jesus,” Lacuna Coil‘s Cristina Scabbia sang on “S.O.S. (Anything But Love),” Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann performed on a cover of David Bowie and Brian Eno‘s “Helden” and Three Days Grace Singer Adam Gontier sang his heart out on “I Don’t Care.” “I Don’t Care” blasted Apocalyptica through the stratosphere, and peaked at number one on the Billboard rock chart. Apocalyptica promoted Worlds Collide with a world tour that included numerous stops in North America.
