Reviews

That was ace. Really, really ace. Really, really good, like ear lightning. Produced by Romesh
Dodangoda, who’s done everyone from Funeral For A Friend, Bullet For My Valentine, it appears there’s something else coming out of South Wales now, something for the future. Really ace.

Calling Apollo, the name itself already teases you with the expectation of something special, something that’s not quite the norm. Suffice to say this is exactly what you get, 25 minutes of heavy hitting guitar riffs with underlying almost futuristic melodies. A mixture of “screamo” vocals and a progressive rock sound gives for a whole new feel to what you expect from five boys from South Wales.

Hunter | Gatherer starts as it means to go on with an unrelenting pace of heavy guitar driven riffs underlying Christian Neale’s unique voice that leaves an imprint on the mind. The first track Hunter, begins with an intro so powerful that Black Sabbath would be proud of it. Leading through the verse it heads to an anthemic chorus where the band showcases their song writing talent with one of the highlights on the EP.

Fantastic fast paced prog rock band. Very unique indeed with a superb ability to change tempo but yet keep that melodic prog style with hints of modern metal mixed in, there is no stopping their talent shining through. I must say I am digging these guys big time, very pleasant to listen to indeed. Vocally superb, lyrically supreme and the music is just pure awesomeness.
