As Portnoy exclaims, “I can’t believe it’s finally here. The Sons Of Apollo debut album is finally OUT TODAY. This album has a little bit of something for everybody…Classic Rock, Metal, Prog…it’s a musical feast for the ears! To prime everybody for the release, we’re excited to debut the video for Lost In Oblivion. This song is full-on energy, excitement and shred! From that crazy double bass drum pattern that took me forever to perfect, to the insane bass and guitar unisons throughout the song, to Jeff’s always-hooky chorus…this song is another great example of what this band is about.”
Stay tuned for news about Sons Of Apollo first worldwide tour in 2018.

This may be my most favorite project of Portnoy’s since leaving Dream Theater. I miss his virtuoso musicianship since leaving DT, a band I wish he was still playing with. But from the couple of songs I’ve heard, this has a similarity to DT, only with a better vocalist.
Completely agree, Rattlehead! I have definitely been looking forward to this album coming out! The songs I’ve heard so far are fantastic! I love Dream Theater, but Jeff Scott Soto has always been one of my favorite vocalists.
