About this album

The band began to record 666 late in : a musical adaptation of the biblical Book of Revelation. Koulouris, having finished his Greek army duty rejoined the band. However, relations between all the band members weren’t good at the time, and continued to worsen during the album’s creation. Essentially, 666 was Vangelis’ concept, created with an outside lyricist Costas Ferris. The music that Vangelis was creating for 666 was much more and oriented than anything the band had done before. This did not sit well with the other band members, who wished to continue in the pop direction that had brought them success. Furthermore, Demis Roussos was being groomed for a solo career, and recorded his first solo single We Shall Dance (with Sideras on drums), and his first solo album On The Greek Side Of My Mind, whereas Vangelis recorded the score for L’Apocalypse Des Animaux and worked on a single with his girlfriend Vilma Ladopoulou, performing with Koulouris using the pseudonym Alpha Beta.
