Apogee - Conspiracy Of Fools (2018)

 

The ninth album from this one-man German band.

Arne Schafer does the programming, guitars, keyboards and vocals himself.

He is helped by Eberhard Graef on drums.

Arne Schafer has carved out an own niche for Apogee in the German neo-prog scene. 

All the previous eight albums has been pretty good too. Arne is a good composer and there is no doubts about that.

We get seventy minutes here and all song/compositions is more than ten minutes each. There is one short song here and that is all.

The music is pretty epic too. Epic but still very melodic and very much in the neo-prog genre.

The sound is a bit thin this time and not all the songs are good. But a couple of very good details and melodies saves this album's bacon.

It is not his best album but it is still well worth checking out.
