“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.” // Apocalypse Orchestra
Standing with one leg in medieval times and the other in modern metal, Apocalypse Orchestra weaves their own special tapestry of music. The tones of the hurdy gurdy and the bagpipe entwines the heavy guitars and music separated by over 800 years meet. On Friday November 24th Apocalypse Orchestra release their debut album “The End Is Nigh” through Despotz Records
Lyrical themes ranges 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. 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 debut album, “The End Is Nigh” features original compositions and lyrics with a heavy medieval flare, but also includes actual melodies hailing back as far as the 12th century. Featuring hurdy gurdy, bagpipe, cittern, lute, mandora and several more traditional instruments the ambience is set from the start.
