  • MEDEDELING !!
  • Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3 weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te regelen, maar het blijft lastig...

    OmschrijvingClassic progressive rock by Versus X mastermind Arne Schäfer. On his new Apogee solo album, there are clear influences from Gentle Giant in the form of contrapuntal a capella vocal lines, selected arrangements with odd bars as well as atmospheric parts with acoustic guitars and driving rock songs with solo escapades and orchestral passages. As always, the Apogee songs consist of many themes that have been interwoven into complex, dynamic- symphonic structures. Fans of Jethro Tull and the early Genesis should also check this out. The Blessing and the Curse“ has become a rather non-compromizing prog album, with five tracks in the range between 12 – 16 minutes playing time and stylistically close to the classic progressive rock of the early seventies (comparable to the records of e.g. Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, ELP, UK, Pink Floyd of this period). All songs are rather complex structurally and regarding the harmonic material used, while besides the Apogee-typical orchestrations also many atmospheric elements are contained. This is music for fans of long bows of tension and musical developments, which still offer real surprises. As always I tried to avoid musical „mainstream“ , on the permanent search for unusual elements, harmonies, melodies and rhythmic accentuation. Also production wise I orientate myself towards the transparent sound and instrumentation of the classic prog albums, in which each instrument can be clearly located in the mix. Like on the latest Apogee CD`s Ebi Graef played the drums and I played all other instruments and sang.” Tracks: 1. Out of Control 15:09 2. Congealing Ground 13:39 3. Hard to see 12:24 4. The Blessing and the Curse 16:03 5. The inspiring Tune 15:23
