Sons Of Apollo, the band featuring vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, etc.), guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Art Of Anarchy, ex-Guns N’ Roses), bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, The Winery Dogs), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, etc.), and drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs), have premiered a new video for their song “Lost In Oblivion.” This track is from the band’s debut album “Psychotic Symphony,” which was released today (October 20).
“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.”
Like Moths To Flames are streaming a new song titled “Shallow Truths For Shallow Minds,” via tattoo.com. This track is from their new album “Dark Divine,“ which will be released on November 3.
Chris Roetter commented:
“Shallow Truths for Shallow Minds is definitely an odd ball for the record but I think people who appreciate the more aggressive side of the band will gravitate towards it. Mixing melody and heavy is sometimes easier said than done but I think this is a great representation of the different things the band can do.”

Evanescence have premiered a new video for their song “Imperfection,” via NME. This is one of two new songs featured on their new album “Synthesis,” which is set to be released on November 10. That effort will mainly be composed of old songs that have been rebuilt and re-recorded using an orchestra and elements of electronica.
Amy Lee previously said the following about the song:
“For me, this is the most important song on the album. I struggled with the lyrics for a long time because there was a lifetime of work to live up to and I wasn’t sure what to say or how to be good enough. When it finally started pouring out of me, it was undeniable. I had no choice. It’s for all the people we’ve lost, all the people who we could lose, to suicide and depression.
I’m singing from the perspective of the person left behind, the person in the waiting room. It’s a plea to fight for your life, to stay. Don’t give into the fear- I have to tell myself that every day. Nobody is perfect. We are all imperfect, and it’s precisely those imperfections that make us who we are, and we have to embrace them because there’s so much beauty in those differences. Life is worth fighting for. You are worth fighting for.”
