We are seeking a Vocalist

After a long association with Apparition, Keith has decided to call it a day so we are on the hunt for a vocalist. We are a traditional Classic Metal band playing primarily our own material. Our influences are Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Led Zep, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, Accept, etc. Our base camp is at Lara but we will mainly be looking to work in Melbourne with occasional shows in the Geelong area. We're a very easy going bunch of guys who like to have a bit a laugh, but because we've been together forever, our music is tight and heavy \m/

If you're in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, or anywhere in the Geelong Area, drop us a line if you are interested.

Welcome back Dave!

Apparition warmly welcomes Dave West back as our bass player. Dave was formerly with us in 1996 and since then has gone on to become well respected in the local band scene. We are very privileged to have him back in the Apparition family.

666 fans ;) \m/

Overnight we welcomed our 666th fan hehe ;) "Revolution X" from North Carolina! ( http://www.reverbnation.com/revolutionxband )

New album work is progressing

We've just reached 2000 views on our Reverbnation site. We are working on recording some songs for our album which will include some of the songs released here at Reverbnation, and a bunch of other songs that have not yet been released.

600 Fans!

We've just gained our 600th fan on Reverbnation! The very cool M.A.I.M. from Belluno Italy was our 600th fan. Check them out, they play a mix of Italian Folk and Metal -_- http://www.reverbnation.com/maimbelluno

Latest news

We have finally started work on our album. A long road ahead but it will be worth the wait. We're also at 598 Reverbnation fans. Spread the word and help us get to 600!

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year to all our fans. Thanks for following us. This year we will be putting together an album (which has been a long time coming!). We will start work on it very soon so stay tuned for more news.

Shadows re-released

We have re-recorded our song Shadows and released it to you all today. We felt that the version we recorded earlier in the year didn't reflect the way the song was meant to sound when we wrote it all those years ago. Please enjoy Shadows - MkII ;-) \m/ -_-

Apparition - new song release - "Change of Scene"

We are very proud to release our new recording "Change of Scene" today. We wrote this song back in the mid 1990s, but this is the first time we have ever recorded it. Hope you all like it as much as we do :) \m/

24 weeks at #1

Our local ranking on Reverbnation has just dropped from #1 to #2 - but that's fine by us coz we were honoured to be at number 1 for over 24 weeks! Thanks for supporting us this past six months as we slowly re-emerge after our 17yr break. We have plenty of music yet to share with you all. :-)
