Apocalypse Orchestra - The End Is Nigh Vinyl LP
Apocalypse Orchestra The End Is Nigh Vinyl LP
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. The band was formed by musical partners in crime Mikael and Erik based out of Sweden. Inspired by their love for folk music and slow metal they decided to combine the two. Their debut The End Is Nigh features original compositions and lyrics with a heavy medieval flare, but also contains actual melodies hailing back as far as the 12th century.
With the hurdy gurdy, bagpipe, cittern, lute, mandora and several other traditional instruments the ambience is set from the start. Clashing with a modern sound the combination is unique. Lyrical themes range from everyday toils of the common man in the dark ages, onwards to art, science and literature, all the way to otherworldly views of existence. Even though the album is named The End Is Nigh this is only the beginning...
