Finnish cello rockers APOCALYPTICA performed the "Angry Birds" theme — composed by Ari Pulkkinen and arranged by APOCALYPTICA and Jonne Valtonen — live on November 10 at Slush's Midnight Game Music Concert. Check out the footage below.
APOCALYPTICA wrote and recorded the theme song for the "On Finn Ice" episode of the Angry Birds Seasons puzzle video game in the Angry Birds series, developed by Finnish computer game developer Rovio Entertainment.
Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the first Angry Birds game was released for Apple's iOS in December 2009.
Angry Birds has been praised for its successful combination of addictive gameplay, comical style, and low price. Its popularity led to versions of Angry Birds being created for personal computers and gaming consoles, a market for merchandise featuring its characters, spin-offs and television series based on the franchise, and even long-term plans for a feature film.
APOCALYPTICA's new album, "Shadowmaker", was released on April 21 via Eleven Seven Music Group's Better Noise imprint. The Finnish musicians — accompanied by their American lead singer Franky Perez — recorded the CD with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES, MASTODON).
