Apostolica releases “Rasputin” video

Apostolica has released a video for “Rasputin”, first single taken from the new album “Animae Haeretica” to be released on September 22nd through Scarlet Records.

The sophomore record for the mystical project featuring veterans of the international heavy metal scene (a concept-album revolving around the Apostolics, an ancient religious movement with unorthodox beliefs), “Animae Haeretica” will be released in the following formats:

– jewel case CD

– digital

Heavy metal heretics Apostolica have founded a new cult based on a mysterious, intriguing image, a bombastic and pristine sound, ultra-catchy riffs and plenty of unforgettable hooks.

The prominent style of the new album is a dark Teutonic power metal, enriched with church choirs and thunderous organs and featuring epic orchestrations and majestic, powerful vocal lines.

Drawing inspiration from the obscure history of the Apostolics (a Christian sect founded in Northern Italy during the late 13th century by Gherardo Segarelli), “Animae Haeretica” delves deep into the sinister tale of this enigmatic movement.
