2004 – Time Requiem – The Inner Circle Of Reality

Their second studio album with 50 mins of brilliant flashy progressive rock/metal featuring Swedish keyboardist extraordinaire Richard Andersson, Jonas on bass and Zoltan Csörsz on drums. Andersson’s keyboard has a guitar patch like Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater and he emulates high speed guitar solos.

The pace of the music is breathless and the intensity and the relentlessly driving rhythms leave you exhausted. Apollo sounds like Russell Allen (Symphony X), strong, flexible, and a good range. Really astonishing is the tight interplay between guitars and keys (like Rudess/Petrucci), and Jonas and Zoltan simply sound great.
