Prog/melodic death metal group APOTHEUS are finally all set to release their sophomore album The Far Star. The Portuguese quartet took a completely different approach with their first ever conceptual album, blending melodies with the story and emotion. Out October 31st via Black Lion Records, each track of this opus narrates a different chapter of an epic saga.
As the first sampler of the album, Decibel Magazine offers the premiere of the track “Caves of Steel”, which comes with an enthralling video.
“‘Caves of Steel’ is perhaps the most Isaac Asimov inspired song of this album, and fans will surely notice that,”inform the band. “This song is essentially a preamble of the story we want to convey with the album. We are placing the spectator on these people’s shoes. We wanted to have the horrors and injustices of this world blatantly represented on the screen.
“Technically, it was certainly the most demanding video we have ever made,” the band continue. “We couldn’t do it without such a talented team on our side. There’s still a lot to unveil about this journey. And expect more news before the album release date.”
