Cello masters Apocalyptica have premiered today a new live performance video for "Ludwig Wonderland". The track is from the band's upcoming release Wagner Reloaded - Live In Leipzig. The album is a live collaboration with the MDR Leipzig Symphony Orchestra and will be released on November 19th via BMG. It was recorded in July 2013 in Leipzig. The song "Ludwig Wonderland" is the first in a chronological set of 3 clips to be published in shorter intervals towards the release. Enjoy the show.
Wagner Reloaded is a work consisting of ballet, play, dance and cello rock — at the same time, all paying tribute to the life and work of composer Richard Wagner.
Ehh, they should stop fooling around with percussions and get back to Inquisition Simphony & Cult sound - that was something new, dark, in a way serious. I still consider Cult the best instrumental metal release around. Well, it had some percussions, but in unobtrusive way, just to compliment the beauty cello & metal music.
Yeah, this is the same old "they are too much commercial" thing.
Ok, but I must listen to whole new live album to judge. And, anyway, that is my opinion. They have potential for serious music, but lately they have become too "mainstream" (maybe this is not appropriate term, I don't know. They are unique, but they could do much better... That is my wish.
