Apogee - The Blessing and The Curse (CD)
This is a Progressive Promotion Records release.

“The Blessing and The Curse has become a rather non-compromising Prog Album, with 5 long tracks, all in the range between 12 – 16 minutes playing time and stylistically close to the classic Progressive Rock of the early seventies (comparable to the records of e.g. Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, ELP, UK, Pink Floyd of this period). All Songs are rather complex structurally and regarding the harmonic material used, while besides the Apogee-typical orchestrations, there are also many atmospheric elements contained. This is music for fans of long bows of tension and musical developments, which still offer real surprises. As always I tried to avoid musical “mainstream“, on the permanent search for unusual elements, harmonies, melodies and rhythmic  accentuation. Also production wise I orientate myself towards the transparent sound and instrumentation of the classic Prog albums, in which each Instrument can be clearly located in the mix. Like on the latest Apogee CDs Ebi Graef played the drums any I played all other instruments and sang.” – Arne Schafer
