The cello metal band Apocalyptica is teaming up with Elize Ryd from Amaranthe for their latest project "What We're Up Against". The collaboration between these Nordic artists results in a dynamic musical fusion. Eicca Toppinen of Apocalyptica expresses her excitement about the collaboration: "We've been wanting to do a song with Elize since we toured together in early 2020. This song felt perfect for this collaboration and Elize delivers a fantastic performance. The song is about staying true to your values and how important it is to consciously formulate opinions and take action in today's world."

"What We're Up Against" is a powerful anthem that combines Apocalyptica's characteristic cello-driven metal with Elize Ryd's unique vocals.

Elize Ryd is not the first front woman that Apocalyptica have brought on board for a collaboration. In the run-up to the joint co-headlining tour of Epica and Apocalyptica, a song was released together with Simone Simons from Epica – "Rise Again".
