"Perto do Amanhecer" is the second album of Apocalypse which was released in France in 1995. The compositions are in the symphonic prog rock way with strong influences of progressive British bands such as Yes, Marillion, IQ, Genesis and ELP. Keyboardist Eloy Fritsch''s Minimoog solos and synthesizers are present on all tracks of this CD. Some classical moments and even hard rock passages contribute to the diversity of the album -- the biggest characteristic of this work. The vibrance illustrated by the constant changes in rhythm, hard guitar chords, and a duel between the acoustic guitar and Minimoog makes this album a truly creative work. The lyrics are in Portuguese and deal with several themes, such as existentialism, nature, science fiction, and mysticism. The good reviews from abroad soon started to arrive, which led to a rise in the band’s popularity and another invitation from Musea, this time for the compilation "Le Melleur du Progressif Instrumental". This CD was edited in the end of 1995 with several European bands and APOCALYPSE representing Brazil. With its baroque influences and a beautiful interplay of minimoog and guitar solos, the chosen song was “Notre Dame”. Recommended to all GENESIS/ MARILLION/ IQ/etc fans and Symphonic/Neo Prog devotees.
