Description

Sorrows of Young Apollo on CD

To meet Beauty once in a dull gray life and never before and never again is to live in hell. A virulent, hard-edged rock odyssey through the myth cycles of Apollo and Dionysus. Shattered gods, fallen heroes, and music that rocks with tension between reason and passion. Point of Ares continues to explode on the hard side of the progressive rock genre. This hard, beautiful, and uncompromising album contains rock paeans to the sun god who watched his lover buried alive because he couldn't bear loving a woman more beautiful than himself, to Dionysus the eternally unrecognized dark in the spaces of Carnival, to Hypatia the last Pagan philosopher who was violently destroyed for her great learning, and to many other figures out of Greek myth and legend. An extended Homeric rock meditation on the loss of heroes and the meaning of the ancient myths to an age of disbelief. Outstanding!
