Über das Konzept:

The album title »Dodekathlon« is referring to the Greek myth of the twelve labours of Hercules, the greatest of the ancient Greek heroes.´Driven mad by Hera (queen of the gods), Hercules slew his son, daughter and wife Megara. After recovering his sanity, Hercules deeply regretted his actions. He was purified by king Thespius, then traveled to Delphi to inquire how he could atone for his actions. Pythia, the oracle of Delphi, advised him to go to Tiryns and to serve his cousin king Eurystheus for twelve years, performing whatever labors Eurystheus might set him. In return, he would be rewarded with immortality. During these twelve years, Hercules is sent to perform twelve difficult labors, which has resulted in twelve album tracks: Every labor is a track, so the complete album tells the whole ancient story.

Mythen und Sagen von Metal-Geschichtenerzählern aufbereitet? Klingt episch, wenn ihr mich fragt.
