The Four Horsemen of Aphrodite’s Child

Imagine the voice of Demis Roussos and the music of Vangelis fused together, and you have just imagined what kind of album ‘666’ must be. In the 1960s, the two Greek geniuses –along with others- formed a band called Aphrofite’s Child. The band played serene progressive rock, but their last album released in 1972 (after they had already split) was more psychedelic than Prog Rock. The album, based on the Revelation of Saint John and titled ‘666’ was a huge hit, and remains to be a reference in the history of Rock.

Here are some of the best tracks:
