Album Review

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.

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.
