 As Portnoy exclaims, “The reception to has been OFF THE CHARTS incredible…well, now actually I guess even ON the charts incredible as well!! Seriously, the reaction from both the fans and the media has been great and we really appreciate all of the love and support so far! 

 “Launching a new band is never easy (take it from the man who has launched about 87 of them!), but when you have such an incredibly strong launching point as SOA does, the sky’s the limit! We look forward to getting this band on the road and playing all over the world throughout 2018…tour dates are coming very soon!”

  1. Portnoys WORST debut showing on Billboard in 20 years The Sons of Apollo came in at 147 who is he kidding massive promo and videos for a “new” band they have 100 years plus collectively in music this album is a super group failure heat seeker bands are Real New and hungry with no promo his narcissism is obvious and this flop shows it!

  2. The album is old hash trash. Someone try to find the SOA sales for Psychotic Symphony and post it because I can not find it. Anything less than certified Gold is a failure.
