Max Lilja – I Sound My Sound

As a founding member of Apocalyptica, Max Lilja shook the heavy metal world playing Metallica covers with a string quartet at Sibelius Academy and then selling millions internationally with the album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. Since quitting Apocalyptica in 2001, Lilja’s cello has served metal artists like Hevein and Tarja Turunen. Now Max Lilja goes solo and changes the headbanging for the dance floor with the album Plays Electronica By One Cello. As the title clearly explains, it includes ten songs of instrumental electronica performed by Max Lilja on electrified and acoustic cellos. I Sound My Sound is the first single of an album that will hit the stores in April.
