Apocalyptica are true explorers, always seeking new frontiers and uncharted territories in which to express themselves. With Cell-0, their 9th studio album, the ambitious and electric quartet have not simply returned to their non-vocal roots, they have traveled deeper and further into the universe of instrumental music than ever before. That first love and passion which fueled Apocalyptica to form during 1993 in Helsinki now carries richer layers of knowledge and experience, which in turn have led to the band to a fundamental realization and creative path.
On May 5th 2022 Prima Sonoro met with Apocalyptica.
We had the honour of presenting Eicca Toppinen with our custom built carbon fiber cello, designed and manufactured at our Prima Sonoro facility in London, Ontario, Canada.
Prima Sonoro manufactures high-performance carbon fibre string instruments. Combining technology, proven form, and sound excellence, Prima Sonoro has taken traditional instrument making into the 21st century and produced nothing less than works of art. The instruments deliver enhanced resonance, and are built to stand the test of time.
Now, both instrument creator and musician come together to raise the bar, and set a new standard for the future of string instruments.
A more reliable platform allowing the musician to effortlessly experience the soul of the instrument and bring music to life.
