Apollo 3 – the album

 

apollo 3The Apollo 3 mania is spreading around the world. When I introduced them at theSkyKid.com I was not even able to imagine that they would become that famous in such a short time.  Currently the postI wrote about them has been seen by more than 1400 people – 53 people left comments – most of them fan girls who would do everything to get more information about their favorite band.  The Apollo 3 single made most of their fans – me including – excited and impatient for the release of their first album – and now it became available at Amazon.comand variety of other retailers . The management of Apollo 3 is doing miracles in promoting the band – and even you can show their support by voting for their song at Viva.tv or by buying the single or / and the album. One thing they lack – is enough information about them – being available in English – which is a must for every band nowadays especially if the word about it spreads so fast.  That gap is being  filed by me ( the post is available in Russian as well ) .  Of course I could not ignore the huge interest to Apollo 3 and would try to give you some insights of what you can expect from the album.

Starting with the basics – the album has 14 songs :

1. Countdown – a cool space intro of the album. It is just that – not a song – but I tend to like it.  Gil Ofarim used to have similar intros to his albums

2. Startschuss – the song was familiar with me – probably because it was included in the single as Time Machine Mix-  which also included the songs Adrenalin,Warum and Keine Angst vor euch. Its a great song and the lyrics can be picked up easily – which makes singing along a great experience ( :

3.Superhelden – I have written all about the single ” Superhelden ” in my previous post about Apollo – there you can also watch its video clip. I would just confirm once again that listening to it while cycling or hanging out by the skate ramps totally rocks .

4. Wir sind– a ballad like song , perfect for the nights by the beach .

5. Brich mein Herz – I liked the rhythm in that song . It also had some great digital sound effects

6. Adrenalin – my favorite song of the album. So full with energy that I can`t believe that someone could listen to it calmly – perfect for all kinds of extreme sports . My little cousin adores is as well ( he is into Parkour)

7. Warum – now ” Warum ” is my favorite word in German. In the courses I took before someone said it in one of those audio recordings you have to listen and I immediately picked it. The song is good – and their voices sound really cool – I imagine that the girls must be going crazy while listening to ” Warum ” – it`s just this kind of song .

8. Boese – for the rap fans – so they are into rap music in addition to rockers . Boese is one of those songs that tends to stick to your mind – and they even sing a bit in English ( talk rather ) .

9. Wie ein Komet – after all the band members of Apollo 3 are just boys – and this is the most boyish song of the album.

10. Verliebt – a special song for all the girls in love with Apollo 3 – you know who you are .

11 . Kein Ding – I can`t recall the style of this song – but it had a totally different sounding than the rest of the songs in the album.  It is something like Hip- Hop I guess – in fact reminded me of Othenic O – typical German rap vibe.

12.  Keine Angst vor Euch – rock and roll baby . Super coool song .

13.Fuer Dich– yet another ballad . Loved it !

14. Licht aus – rap song …a bit weird …

So that`s my first impressions – I would love if you share yours in the comments . At the same time please avoid comments which look like ” Henry du bist soooooooooooooooooooooooo cooooll ” – this has been said and I am sure that the band would like to read something more constructive – in order to see how their album is being accepted . The boys gave it all  – Henry performed the song from heart and would amaze you with his incredible voice .  Marvin, who is MC, gives the tracks with his tremendous stylistic rap coolness. And Dario, with his razor-sharp and tons heavy guitar riffs for the rock Adrenalin factor.

Apollo 3 – Three guys, one mission.

  1. Hey ihr drei! Ich liebe eure Band. Ihr macht echt hammer Musik!!! Könnte ich eure E-Mail haben :D !!! Für immer euer Fan cix!

  2. 400 hours and German from scratch? That's impressive.

    Back as per Skykid's invitation.

    I can't name a favourite song. I love so many of them. There are a couple that I don't think are as good as the rest, but the majority are excellent.
    Startschluss is generally awesome, and the video clip rocked.
    Superhelden rocked, and the video clip was just generally awesome.
    Wir Sind 1 was an excellent reminder of the petty nature of differences.
    Brich Mein Herz has a sweet chorus.
    Adrenalin has some excellent vocal work.
    Warum moved me almost to tears, and the lead's voice is amazing.
    Boese was interesting, but I didn't connect with it significantly.
    Wie Ein Komet was excellent, and is so filled with hope and meaning.
    Verliebt is a rarity – a love song I liked.
    Kein Ding didn't work for me – I'm not such a rap fan.
    Keine Angst vor Euch has amazing music behind it.
    Fuer Dich is such a well-told story.
    Licht Aus… I don't get it.

    Such an amazing album.

  3. How could I summarize 400 hours of my life in 10 seconds?

    I loved this album so much I decided to learn German from scratch just so I could understand it and sing along.

    There you go.

  4. Yeah …well I am always around the place ( this blog ) and usually no comment is left without response. That`s why the comment`s exists in first place – to facilitate dialogue – and when they result in improvement of the articles – its even better ! So no need for apologies ( – :

    when you get the album – feel free to come back and us ( me and the other people who will read this article ) know what you think of it , which is your fav . song…etc

  5. Wow, that was quick. I didn't expect a response at all, let alone so soon. Apologies if I sounded overly critical. I didn't mean to be.

    I'd only just found the band on YouTube when I got to your article, and it was great to see some information about them in English, as you say (My German is pretty terrible). I guess that it's a testament to you that, despite writing this 7 months ago, people are still reading it.

    Again, good work, and thanks on behalf of English-Speaking fans everywhere :).

  6. Great article, Skykid, and a fantastic introduction to their work for someone who has little experience with German music.

    I will point out a couple of things, though, which you may or may not have noticed.

    In your sentence about Marvin, in the last paragraph, you describes his coolness as 'rape style' which should probably be 'rap' and there's a redundant 'with' in the same sentence.

    Also, with “they even sing a bit in English a bit”, you've got two “a bit”s, which sounds odd.

    There are a couple more minor errors and misspellings present, but they're the only ones that really stand out.

    Again, thanks for a great introduction. I'll be buying their album as soon as I can find a copy off-line.

    Oh, and just for your information, with the inro song on the track? They've mentioned in interviews that one of their musical influences is Linkin Park, and Linkin Park start off all their albums with instrumental-only intro tracks.

  9. Hello Rowan,

    I am glad that you liked my article about Apollo 3. Quite some time passed since their album was released – yet their song seem to be ever present on my player. Thank you for the correction you suggested – all of them are already incorporated in the text and in addition I have fixed quite a few “minor errors and misspellings ” as you call them. Don`t know why they were not picked up by the initial spell check – in any case the article should be much cleaner now – thanks to you.

  10. Hello Natalia,

    I am glad that you liked my article on Apollo 3. You are right that for whatever reason finding information about them in any other language than German is a hard task. And they do have fans from all over the world as they said in the interview published on their youtube account. I would like to invite you and Sandra to share your opinion on Spanish about the album when you get it – similar to what I have done above.

    Thank you for commenting at theskykid.com. I hope that you will be checking the site often.

    Hasta luego ,

    SkyKid

  11. I really liked this article! ^^ It's difficult to find information about them in a language that is not german xD

    Well, I'm from Spain and I'm trying to promote the band with a friend called Sandra in this country, and they are many girls interested on them, which is a very good thing as they had recently started *-*
    We think they do a great music for their age, and we are anxious to know how are they gonna be in two or three years more, they'll do amazing songs and they'll success completely (I hope! <3)
    So Sandra and I have just order the album and we are very excited, as it's logical. Can't wait to hear it!

    Thaaaank you for writing it! :)
