09:27 - Lokaeda Check the album "morbid fascination of death" by Carpathian Forest, there's a song with some sax on this one.
08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
The name "Apothys" was made up by the band in December 2004. Many people get it confused with the villain named Apophis on the hit serious "Stargate SG-1" on the sci-fi network. Apophis is also an Egyptian god of death - the uncreator. There is an asteroid that may potentially hit the Earth in 2029 also name Apophis or Apothis. However, the name "Apothys" has nothing to do with gods of death or destruction. Apothys is simple a noun. Apothys is and will always be the band created in 2004 by a few metal heads looking to contribute to something great.
