First track - SIOPE - is a minute opener to show you what to expect from these talented rockers. Red Apollo lay down the groundwork early on. It's loud, heavy and passionate from the start. Matthes hardcore based like vocals are the main driving force of this album amongst the frenzied riffage on show. Matthes vocals feels like the whole world has gone crazy and his voice is the lone survivor making a stand against all the chaos that is going on.
Up next is - The Vow - A minute track that Siope - Red Apollo - Marche Funebre the full power of what this band is all about. Frantic and highly passionate riffage to show the world how pissed off they actually are. The blend of Post-Hardcore and Atmospheric Sludge is a thunderous and volatile marriage that is both beautifully creative and pure destructive fury running through it's veins. You know that something heavy is coming amongst the quieter parts.
Just sit back and enjoy the ride. This is where the album takes a spooky occult vibe by adding a sublime audio clip that sets the eerie tone early on. It might take time to get going but when it does then your in for another unexpected ride of thrills and spills. And that's how the album remains the same for the last Ron Boots, Kees Aerts, Harold Van Der Heijden - BAH!
- Live In Sweden tracks. It never becomes boring for one second. In some instances the music becomes heavier and more creative especially on Haxanhammer an the brilliant minute track - A Sea Of Trees. Red Apollo are hugely talented musicians who prove their ambition and worth time and time again. It has the right blend of riffs and emotions to set them apart amongst the Post-Hardcore elite.
