APOCALYPTICA: New Album Track Listing Revealed

Finnish cello-rockers APOCALYPTICA have set a January 24 European release date through Universal for their new self-titled album. The complete track listing for the effort is as follows:

01. Life Burns
02. Quutamo
03. Distraction
04. Bittersweet
05. Misconstruction
06. Fisheye
07. Farewell
08. Fatal Error
09. Betrayal/Forgiveness
10. Ruska
11. Deathzone

A limited-edition version of the CD will contain three bonus tracks as well as the video for "Bittersweet" and "making of" footage.

As previously reported, APOCALYPTICA travelled to Tallinn, Estonia last November to shoot the second video off the new CD, "Life Burns". The track features lead vocals and lyrics by THE RASMUS singer Lauri Ylönen, who also appears in the clip.

SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo will be guesting on "Apocalyptica" on a song called "Betrayal/Forgiveness". The track, which is described by APOCALYPTICA's Perttu Kivilaakso as a "really fast, thrash metal-influenced song," will mark the second time Lombardo has played on an APOCALYPTICA CD, having previously performed on 2003's "Reflections".

Lombardo recorded the drum tracks for "Betrayal/Forgiveness" at Finnvox studios in Helsinki when SLAYER's "Unholy Alliance" tour hit Finland in October.

APOCALYPTICA will support German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN on a European tour in February. The group's first-ever North American tour will kick off March 15 in New York City. A complete listing of the currently confirmed tour dates can be found at this location.
