The Statement
All the different pathological fears are humane conditions that everyone has to deal with in life eventually. The obsession and preoccupation with these dreadful feelings was already thematized by the ancient Greeks and found its personified place in mythology. Phobos and Deimos represent fear and terror and are the sons of Ares, the god of war. Both assist their father devotedly and help him by putting horses in front of his chariot before each campaign.

This ancient scenery has not only influenced the design of the album cover but also the video for the title track ‚The Laurels of Serenity‘! The female protagonist is engrossed by profound anxiety and only finds relief when finally dominating and leading one of Ares’ fear-bringing horses


The Biography

RED APOLLO will release their third album „The Laurels Of Serenity" in April 2018. Again, the band has further developed their sound and combines their post-metal with progressive and black metal elements. CD/LP/LP-Box/Digital will again be released via MOMENT OF COLLAPSE RECORDS.

The modern world increasingly lacks of steadiness and becomes an epitome of movement and change. Music as an art is already affected by these recent trends resulting in a growing number of artists that embrace a ! eeting lifespan and play by the rules of a volatile industry. RED APOLLO are different in this aspect. Seeing the seventh year of existence after several physical releases and almost 150 lives shows including touring with BLACK TUSK and HEAVEN IN HER ARMS, the members do not have any plans to slow down. Instead, RED APOLLO are set to release their third full-length ‘The Laurels of Serenity’ on the 27th of April 2018 via MOMENT OF COLLAPSE RECORDS. The album merges eight songs that were created and recorded throughout the past two years thematising the band’s confrontation with the full spectrum of pathological fears. Music-wise, RED APOLLO once again wander with diligence and aspiration in the realms of atmospheric Post-Metal that draws on influences ranging from Metal to Hardcore and Crust. With such a rich background, ‘The Laurels of Serenity’ sounds thick and massive with a precision and rawness that serves as glue between the soundscapes that every single song evokes. The songs were recorded by Falk Andreas at Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg and Dominic Paraskevopoulos at Level3Entertainment Studios in Essen. Mix and Master were also done by Dominic Paraskevopoulos.
