"666" by Aphrodite's Child
Aphrodite's Child "666" 1972 (Greece)
Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou, better known as Vangelis, scored and arranged this double-album prog rock masterpiece with his band Aphrodite's Child in 1970, but the record company sat on it until 1972. And even then, this album was still years ahead of its time! Easily the best of the "religious" concept album / rock operas of the era, "666" is a faithful musical adaptation of the Book of Revelations, depicting the end times and the rise of "The Beast." This album makes a thrilling and sometimes frightening movie for the mind . . . and according to the liner notes, it was recorded "under the influence of SAHLEP" . . . whatever that means!
