Apotheus is a progressive metal band hailing from Portugal, known for their unique blend of melody and experimentation. From the beginning of their career, Apotheus has pushed the boundaries of the metal genre and defied categorization. Drawing from a wide range of influences, their music combines heavy riffs, intricate rhythms, and delicate melodies.
“The Far Star” conceptual album garnered critical acclaim and cemented the band’s place as a story-telling metal act. “Ergo Atlas” is a direct sequel, and has continued to evolve their sound, experimenting with new musical techniques and incorporating a variety of influences. Their sound roars with passion and dedication, enveloped with a thick mantle of epic sci-fi story as a solid background.
