Apologoethia was spawned way back in 2012/13 as a side project from J.B. in order to develop some ideas that didn't fit both musical and stylistically with his main band. After an intense composing period, the style that now exists as Apologoethia was born. Sometime in 2014, J.B. asked J.F. to lay down some drum patterns that would fit with the riffs, the tempos and compliment the overall feel, atmosphere and vibe that the songs needed and demanded. With all the material already prepared, shaped and sharpened, it was time to develop the conceptual side of the band, creating some lyrics that would fit with Apologoethia's atmosphere and dark & macabre approach. After a meticulous search, L.O. was brought into the band knowing that his writing and conceptual skills would work perfectly with the band's aesthetics and purposes. Apologoethia's debut explores the dark side of human knowledge, an introspection through different cultural, ascetic and religious approaches mankind explored throughout centuries past.
very interesting black metal, dark and mean but also groovy, it has texture and stays interesting by inventive rhythms, nightmarish vocals and nicely inspired guitar solos. Evocative ... makes a nice listen to make you daydream. SEBASTIEN COTE
