Akropolis - Half a Million Hours Symphony (1979)


The one and only album from this band from Denmark.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

This band and album is even today pretty unknown and very obscure. I have yet to find a review of this album anywhere else. Hence...... I am reviewing it.

The music is as obscure as the album. I think there is a recurring theme here.....

This thirty-five minutes long album is divided into an Overture and five Movements. Yes, as in a classic music album.

The music is not symphonic prog or classic music. It is..... Gosh....... A bit of various elements.

Take a bit classic rock, some classic music, eclectic prog and symphonic prog. 

The result is eccentric and weird. 

The quality is decent throughout and this album deserve a bit more attention than the zero attention it has got. Check it out and make up your own mind.
