Sons of Apollo is a heavy metal supergroup, drawing musical expertise from bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Avenged Sevenfold, and Alice Cooper with the band members having formerly played in such bands. Their musical style consists of harcore, head-smashing metal music which brings out a certain animal in each listener. The talent of the band lies within their members, namely: Jeff Soto, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, and Mark Portnoy. The band was formed in 2017 after Mike Portnoy had proposed the idea to fellow band members and friends who were interested in a full-time project. Their debut album, Psychotic Symphony, was released in October of 2017.
Off of their album, “God of the Sun” is an ode to the metal genre as a whole with its bone-crunching instrumentals and intense vocals, whereas tracks such as “Lost in Oblivion” and “Coming Home” dig into the bands roots and express the foundation of the band’s style. Sons of Apollo is currently playing their debut album on tour and tickets are on sale via their website.
