Sons of Apollo might be a new band, but the guys in the band are certainly no neophytes. The members are Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Billy Sheehan, and Jeff Scott Soto. You can read more about how the band came together on the band’s Facebook page:
….former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), Billy Sheehan (The Winery Dogs, Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force)—have just released the video for “Coming Home” from their highly anticipated debut album, PSYCHOTIC SYMPHONY. —
The band incorporates the progressive style and individual technical prowess that Portnoy & Sherinian shared together in Dream Theater combined with the swagger and groove of Van Halen, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.
‘Coming Home’ is taken from the band’s debut release ‘Psychotic Symphony’, set for release in October. I really love this kick-ass tune from the band, and will be checking out the album when it is released.
