Apocalypse was the main heavy metal clothing to emerge from Switzerland after Celtic Frost. Composed of Carlos R. Sprenger (vocals), Julien Brocher (electric guitar), Pierre Alain Zurcher (electric guitar), Jean Claude Schneider (bass) and Andre Domenjoz (drums), their central impact came from quickness metal bands such as for example Slayer. Produced in 1984, some short-lived line-ups ensued before balance was achieved plus they guaranteed a agreement with Under One Flag. Their debut record was blended by Metallica supremo Flemming Rasmussen and highlighted high-energy power steel, although the audio was eventually flawed by insubstantial vocals. They shouldn’t be baffled with the other pop and rock and roll acts who’ve utilized the name Apocalypse.
