Apocalyptica have dropped their take on Metallica‘s “The Unforgiven II“. Their rendition of that 1997 track is headed for a June 07th release as part of the latest tribute to the aforementioned thrash metal titans from the Finnish string-laden outfit. Specifically, Apocalyptica will be issuing “Apocalyptica Plays Metallica Vol. 2“, a spiritual follow-up to their 1996 debut, “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos“,  on that date.

Lead cellist Perttu Kivilaaks commented:

“We wanted to balance what we were doing between old and new. ‘The Unforgiven II‘ has such beautiful melodies and the lyrics are great, too! I loved the fact that we’ve been able to bind this record and our first record together in this way.”

The group previously released their take on “The Four Horsemen, complete with a guest spot from Metallica‘s own Robert Trujillo, as the first single from this new album.
