You have to respect artists that purely make music for the love of music. Iapetus are a wonderful, highly talented two man band hailing from none other than Long Island, New York. They write large scale, beautiful music that could be cast as a cross between Melodic Death Metal and Progressive Metal with no shortage of twists between. They also don’t shy away from elaboration with their latest album “The Long Road Home” clocking in at over an hour and fifteen minutes! Between it’s 9 tracks, it’s not uncommon to see numbers above ten minutes per. In a word – epic.

Speaking of the latest album, the effort is available for a damn near unbelievable FREE DOWNLOAD over on Bandcamp! Go take advantage of that while you still can! These guys deserve all the love they get and some!

That being the case, we opted to join forces with Iapetus and bring the music directly to you! The ten minute epic of a track “Lachrymae Rerum” is now live and streaming over on our YouTube channel. You can give the goods a go but hitting that “play” button just below! And, once again, if you enjoy the music, it’s available for streaming in full and a free download over on Bandcamp!
