New supergroup Sons Of Apollo have revealed that they’ll release their debut album later this year.

The band sees former Dream Theater members Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian reunited – and they’re joined in the lineup by Mr Big and The Winery Dogs bassist Billy Sheehan, ex Journey frontman Jeff Scott Soto and former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal.

They’ll release the album Psychotic Symphony on October 20 via InsideOut Music/Sony Music which was produced by The Del Fuvio Brothers – aka Portnoy and Sherinian.

While I like the individual members and their various projects, this one may have too much technical wankery for me. I'd like to hear a few more tracks though.

That song sounds better than the first one I heard. This could be cool. Maybe. That's a neat guitar Bumblebee uses.

Double necks everywhere. Maybe they need double mics.

Wankery? What I've heard so far seems far less reserved than what I expected.

Yeah, I've been a little disappointed from what I've heard (the two singles) because they were pretty straightforward and a little underwhelming.

Pretty good stuff. I'd pick it up at some point, although I'm not gonna break a leg hunting it down.

I finally (reluctantly) listened to 3 SOA songs on YT...I have to say it's way better than anything Dream Theater has done in years and years.

It's a great album. Some of the...I don't know, more "grungy" kind of riffs seem to clash with the proggy stuff at times, but that's sort of a nitpicky complaint. Otherwise it's fantastic.

I've put the album in my cart a few times on Amazon, but ended up getting something else. I'll pick it up at some point I'm sure.

I think they have potential. Every player is great, but they need more time to find a sound and write some hooks.
