APOTHEUS: “Caves of Steel” Video from “The Far Star” Album by the Portuguese prog infused melodeath act and Live Dates!

Emerging from the city of Paços de Ferreira, APOTHEUS place their exquisite sonic territory in the middle of  melodeath and prog metal. The Portuguese group started to record some demos soon after their formation in 2008 and released the EP “A Quest to Remain” in 2011. However, they did not perfect their desired sound until the creation of their 2013’s debut full-length, titled When Hope and Despair Collide.

Fast-forward to 2019, after many national tours and other original works, Apotheus made an international breakthrough signing with Black Lion Records (Sweden) for the sophomore album The Far Star. The quartet took a completely different approach with their first ever conceptual album, blending melodies with the story and emotion. The opus unfolds the untold story of our ancestry — a painful journey of survival in the majesty of the cosmos, but also a delicate introspective about the human nature. The Isaac Asimov inspired album reveals how the collision of two worlds resulted something new: a hope, a mission and a destination.

“‘Caves of Steel’ is perhaps the most Isaac Asimov inspired song of this album, and fans will surely notice that,”inform the band. “This song is essentially a preamble of the story we want to convey with the album. We are placing the spectator on these people’s shoes. We wanted to have the horrors and injustices of this world blatantly represented on the screen.

“Technically, it was certainly the most demanding video we have ever made,” the band continue. “We couldn’t do it without such a talented team on our side. There’s still a lot to unveil about this journey. And expect more news before the album release date.”

Out November 01st via Black Lion Records, each track of this opus narrates a different chapter of this epic saga.
