APOCALYPTICA: Pro-Shot Footage From Portugal's ROCK IN RIO Festival Available

Professionally filmed video footage of the Finnish cello quartet APOCALYPTICA's June 5, 2008 performance at the Rock in Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal can be viewed below.

APOCALYPTICA recently cancelled its appearance at the M'era Luna festival set to take place August 8-9 in Hildesheim, Germany in order to play this year's one-day Ozzfest in Dallas, Texas on August 9.

APOCALYPTICA recruited FUEL frontman Toryn Green to handle lead vocals on the quartet's recent North American tour, which began on April 11 and concluded on May 19. The group initially enlisted Johnny Andrews, who co-wrote the band's current single, "I'm Not Jesus", to sing on the trek, but Andrews was replaced after just a handful of shows. In addition to "I'm Not Jesus", Andrews also co-wrote another track called "S.O.S. (Anything But Love)". Both tunes are from APOCALYPTICA's new album, "Worlds Collide", which arrived in stores in the U.S. on April 15.

Other guests on "Worlds Collide" include SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor, LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia, drummer Dave Lombardo from SLAYER and vocalist Till Lindemann of RAMMSTEIN.

Cristina Scabbia performed with APOCALYPTICA at this year's Download festival which was held June 13-15 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, UK.
