APOPHIS (Ger): “Heliopolis” Cd 1998 Morbid


By the cover alone, this band looked like a z level copy of NILE, as ther’s some badly drawn Egyptian design on it, even though… hey, isn’t “Heliopoli”s a

Greek word? Whatever, trying to evade the horrible reminiscences of the cover artwork, and focusing on the music, the things doesn’t get much better, there

are some slow, dreamy interminably long solos which have something of MY DYING BRIDE, while the music itself is yet some sort of low battery Death Metal slow

to mid tempo… sometimes overly melodic and repetitive with this fair attempt at epicitry which fails without a chance. Not the worst band of earth, but a

long way to be considered deserving of a plastic disc.
