Apocalypse Live in Rio = DVD = (DVD)
APOCALYPSE has been the first Brazilian band signed by Musea for a new record. Released at the end of the Eighties, "Lendas Encantadas" (1989) revealed an exceptional band playing Progressive rock music full of energy, obviously inspired by MARILLION. The reissue includes four bonus-tracks recorded in 1996. The second album "Perto Do Amanhecer" (1995) proves to be in the same vein, but even better ! These twelve concise pieces mix peaceful acoustic moments with more agressive and nearly hard-rock passages. And the Portuguese singing gives the music an exotic and very nice touch. Discover the warmth of this sunny music, when admiring the superb pictures included in the booklet. "Aurora Dos Sonhos" (1996) displays a luxurious Progressive rock music, halfway between influences from the Italian school from the Seventies (BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI, QUELLA VECCHIA LOCANDA) and the recent neo Progressive efficiency. A successful and subtle mixing. "Refugio" (2003) includes ten tracks (Plus two bonus tracks) and a fantastic booklet with photos, lyrics and information about the band. More than the usual quality Progressive rock with symphonic influences, it delivers us those forgotten feelings like peace, love and compassion. It is, undoubtly, an album worth listening to ! Available on both CD and DVD formats, "Live In Rio" features the band performing in the Rio ArtRock Festival 2005. That's the occasion to discover a new repertoire, as well as old tracks sung by the newcomer Gustavo DEMARCHI. His particularity is to sing in English, unlike his predecessor. Thanks to this, the music sounds more neo Progresive than ever ! One hour and a quarter of music you cannot afford to miss ! "The Bridge Of Light" has been captured live in front of an enthusiastic brazilian audience in november 2006. You just need to listen to the two opening songs to realize how good this band is: the first one gets closer to the best of DEEP PURPLE, whereas the second one strongly evokes FISH's MARILLION. And what about the remaining tracks ? They just sound like... APOCALYPSE !
