3 reviews for Mythos – Edgar Allan Poe

  1. Lothar Lubitz

    After 1.5 years of work Stefan Kaske aka Mythos finished his new concept album.
    On 2 discs Mythos presents his musical version of more stories of drama and fantasy by Edgar Allen Poe.Like Alan Parsons 28! years ago with ‘The Fall Of The Hous Of Usher’ Mythos tells us with every track another story.
    You really have to listen carefully to imagine the mystery behind the tales.
    A great concept album that should be enjoyed while reading Edgar Allen Poe.

    Over the years, the dyed-in-the-wool EM performer Stephan Kaske, a.k.a. Mythos, has been known to release very interesting music. He started his career as a keyboard player in a symphonic rock group (also named Mythos, in 1969!) and became an adept performer versed in many different styles of EM. As the years passed he made a name for himself as one of the most versatile musicians on the EM landscape. In his private studio he has produced some fifteen albums. Now, following a break of a few years, Kaske makes a most convincing return with a double CD dedicated to the works (CD 1) and life (CD 2) of the famous Anglo-American writer, Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849).
    Kaske became very intrigued by the literary style of Poe, who, being an orphan, had to endure much hardship during his life of 40 years. Not surprisingly, these feelings found their expression in Poes mysterious, gloomy, and sometimes outright frightening stories.
    For one and a half years, Kaske locked himself in his studio in Berlin and conceived these works. The results are highly original and melodic pieces of music.

    The first CD contains eight tracks, which vary in length from 4:30 to 10+ minutes. To depict the drama in Poes stories, Kaske uses numerous distinctive samples (e.g., flutes, obscure brass sounds, vocoder like timbres).
    In particular, the last track, The Island of the Fay”

  3. Ronald Boortman / Holland

    De Amerikaanse dichter en schrijver Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is vooral bekend geworden door zijn griezel- en detectiveverhalen, waarvan er verschillende zijn verfilmd. Zijn meest beroemde gedicht is zonder twijfel The Raven” (1845)
