Apotheus release audiobook with digital experience26th March 2021 0 By John Deaux
After the release of their latest album “The Far Star”, portuguese melodic death metal titans APOTHEUS release today, their first science fiction audiobook “The Far Star Mission”.
“The Far Star” was released in 2009, highly inspired by the work of the American scientific and biochemical writer Isaac Asimov. “The Far Star” was released worldwide through Black Lion Records which helped to spread the band’s name all over the globe, especially within fans of space rock, melodic heavy metal and of course, science fiction fans.
With its own universe, the whole concept of “The Far Star” was translated to music by using sound layers that bring us back to science fiction movies with soundtracks worthy of “Passengers”, “Interstellar”, among others. There are also suggestive videos with production allusive to the concept, directed by the renowned Guilherme Henriques and now also in audiobook format, innovating with a digital reading interface accompanied by the narration of the vocalist (Miguel Andrade) and a whole sonoplastic plot that will surely immerse the reader (and listener) in the 45-minute narrative of the culmination of the entire original universe created by the band.
With the release of the audiobook, Apotheus seek to break stereotypes, showcasing their artistic values that go beyond musical composition, and bringing an original concept written in a “short-story” format.
