Apocalypse Orchestra Theatre of War

APOCALYPSE ORCHESTRA - Theatre of War
Video release -

BIOGRAPHY
Mixing medieval instruments and melodies with modern metal, Apocalypse Orchestra weaves a faceted tapestry of music. The tones of ancient drone instruments entwine with heavy guitars and music separated by over 800 years meet. 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 band was formed in 2014, and already with one album out the band are live veterans, having performed at clubs, festivals and at concert halls, even giving a performance live with a symphonic orchestra. With a live show that features theatrical performances (sometimes utilizing actors and dancers), fire and projected animation, the band has become one of the most talked about acts currently playing out.

 
The quintet’s debut album, ‘The End Is Nigh’ was released early 2017 (mixed by Per Nilsson of Scar Symmetry) and have been given great reviews from a number of critics. Video #1 the band unleashed prior to the release (The Garden of Earthly Delights -

QUOTE VIDEO #2 - Theatre of War
War. The ultimate madness of the human race. Few things have shaped history as much. Imagine the horror of the peasant soldier, forced by a callous sovereign to march into battle. Bodies and limbs of those fallen strewn on the ground, a veritable feast for the carrion birds circling above . The survivors forever mentally scarred. A rain starts to fall. There is no glory in war.

“War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it.”
– Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1466 – 1536)
