St. James and the apostles by leslie snyder

“Baphomet”
By Leslie Snyder
A rollercoaster of emotion roars out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from an unsigned psychedelic rock/acid rock trio called St. James & the Apostles. This fun loving trio sings songs about love, hope, and fast living while sounding similar to The Doors and The Cowsills. St. James & the Apostles have a cool retro sound with “sharp” modern rock melodies which brings out the honesty heard in their third CD “Baphomet.” “Baphomet” was released on September 7, 2012 featuring seven heart wrenching tracks that will surely tug at one’s “heart strings.”
The soul searching journey begins with a romance brewing in the first track “Kiss & Tell.” This track features soulful vocals and “rough” acid rock melodies. This track is a “bubbly” tale about a man becoming a little bit embarrassed about his girlfriend “spilling” secrets about their relationship to all of her friends. Meanwhile, a lost soul is looking for some hope in the fourth track “12 Steps with Jesus.” This track features soulful vocals and slow, light psychedelic rock melodies. This track is a hopeful tale about a man wanting to walk with Jesus because he is tired of sin following him. The man wants to live in peace and not under a cloud of darkness.
Finally, hope turns into carelessness in the sixth track “Down the Way.” This track features “snarling” vocals and “gritty” acid rock melodies. This track is a raucous tale about a man who is living a “hard charging” lifestyle and wondering why all of his money is starting to dwindle away. The man is struggling with trying to change his reckless behavior.
St. James & the Apostles is a raucous unsigned psychedelic rock/acid rock trio that mixes “old school” rock and modern rock with a “brash” style. The trio’s third CD “Baphomet” tells life like it is with no apologies.
