" Awaken "
( Self - released ) 2010.
Metal/hard rock/gothic/psychedelic

Apollos is a unusual act with strange history behind. They started out firstly in 1987 year, and in those times band has released an album, entitled " Rising" A group has received a criticall acclaim from prestige British " Kerrang" magazine, and received a cult following.
After years of inactivities, a band turned a new chapter and during the November of previous 2010 year , announced its second arrival with album " Awaken". Apollos are definitelly original act with interesting authors ideas. Musically they are on therithory of classic 70's and 80's metal, fullfield with evident gothic and even psychedelic tendencies as well. They combines older and newer variants, and as a result, we have a quite unique releasing approach. A songs are intense, also mostly different among them, with many uptempo changes, and unexpecting arrangments includings. A 14 tracks are present on " Awaken" album without unnecessery technical includings, but with also specofic present atmosphere, evident on each place of album. " Awaken" is interesting product, worth listeners attention. ....
