Prog infused melodeath band APOTHEUS have released their second album The Far Star today via Black Lion Records. The Portuguese quartet took a completely different approach with their first ever conceptual album, blending melodies with the story and emotion. The opus unfolds the untold story of our ancestry — a painful journey of survival in the majesty of the cosmos, but also a delicate introspective about the human nature. The Isaac Asimov inspired album reveals how the collisionof two worlds resulted something new: a hope, a mission and a destination.
“‘The Far Star’ tells the story of a mission of extreme importance for the entire species,”Apotheus inform. “It is a quest for survival and a very painful one.
“We created a concept and iterated on it countless times. We placed ourselves on the feet of these people and recreated the story with sound. It is our most challenging work to date and we can’t wait to release this for the whole world to see.”
“With its cinematically emotional scope and relentlessly captivating melodies and music, it’s worth taking the trip ASAP, which is precisely what you can do below,” writes Metal Injection with the premiere of the album.
