Overview

Mythos' first LP starts with a rock-meets-classic interpretation of Georg-Friedrich Händel's "Feuerwerksmusik" with Stephan Kaske playing the melody on the flute. "Oriental Journey-Hero's Death" presents Middle Eastern percussion, acoustic guitar, and flute. Sitar and Mellotron sounds add a psychedelic mood to the song. Like the following track, it paints a dark and pessimistic picture of the past and the future of the world. "Encyclopedia Terrae" is the highlight of the album and mixes quiet parts with power drumming, hard guitar riffs with sounds of war like marching soldiers, sirens, and bomb detonations. The text on the final sequence is inspired by H.G. Wells' novel The Time Machine. A man travels 3,300 years into the future to find a better world, only to discover a dead and destroyed planet at the end. Stephan Kaske sings in a proclaiming style, the voice treated with excessive use of reverb and phasing effects. By the way, this is an early production of Dieter Dierks, who later worked for bands like the Scorpions.
