    this song kicks all kinds of ass. I could do without solos by all FOUR instruments though in the song.

    I've listened to this album several times through now and I'm really enjoying it. It's the right mix of prog metal elements and just old school hard rock too. Looking forward to seeing these guys live.

    I too will be in ATL, really excited for this show. I think I'm equally pumped to see what else they play besides the Sons of Apollo stuff.

    Just saw them on the cruise. The first show was great but had a few rough patches as it was the first ever. The second Show on the pool deck was spot-on and kick ass. And yes you'll enjoy the extras they throw in. The how band is great but JSS is the man.

    Saw this show last night in ATL at the Variety Playhouse. It was my first time at the venue and they were fantastic. The opening band was the dribbling shits, but Sons of Apollo delivered as expected. I thought JSS sounded better live than on the album, less raspy and more crisp especially where he's supposed to be breathy on vocals. I was really impressed with Bumblefoot too, man that guy can go. If you have a chance to see them close by you, you won't be disappointed.

    saw these guys last night too and DAMN was the band tight as hell. I agree the openers were not that great. I would have preferred the house music for another 40 minutes honestly. Never been to Variety Playhouse before but damn nice venue.

    I didn't see that show, but I've been to the Variety Playhouse a few times before, including last year to see Udo Dirkschneilder to a setlist of accept songs. It's a very nice venue, good for a variety of shows.
