Apocalypse - The Castle vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 05-OSR 089LP
“70s Chicago-area based band Apocalypse used their double-neck guitars to create chamber prog suites about faraway castles. Their lost 1976 LP (used as a demo), with male/female harmonies, violin, mellotron, and fuzzed-out guitars/keys has been unearthed by Steve "Plastic Crimewave" Krakow.
With their lengthy and tuneful musical odysseys, Apocalypse conjures the golden mid-70s progressive period of Renaissance, Soft Machine, ELP, Gentle Giant, and Genesis. Travel back in time with the Salvatori family. Way back to 1976, when he was in high school, Tom Salvatori teamed up with older brother Michael Salvatori, Michael's wife Gail Salvatori and Tom's classmate Scott Magnesen.
As Apocalypse they recorded an album of pure progressive rock magic called The Castle. Although the five-song, 38-minute demo was an amazing showcase for their collective progressive rock leanings, The Castle remained an unreleased artifact until 2021 when the reel-to-reel master tape of the presumably long-lost relic was rediscovered by Michael in a dusty old basement storage bin.
Music fans can be thankful that Michael's rediscovery of the Apocalypse master tape has now led to a vinyl-only first time issue of The Castle. Sourced from the original masters. Insert with photos and liner notes by Plastic Crimewave.”
