"The first ever official vinyl reissue of these greek legends. Originally released in 1982 by Vertigo this is a very rare album nowadays. Progressive, space rock, psychedelic, byzantine and mid-eastern elements create the ultimate greek "rock" album, as many prog-minds around the world declare. The lyrics based on the "Apocalypse of John" and the "Prophecies of Ezekiel". No more comments as this is a well-known masterpiece. But the surprise is the "GASPAR", which accompanies this album. It was a privately pressed 7" EP, released in 1979 as a limited edition of 1000 copies and it had been distributed by the band through their gigs. Nowadays, it's an ultra rarity and almost impossible to find a copy. It contains 4 tracks, all self-penned and sung in English and it's closer to the late 60's - early 70's psychedelic music than to the "Armageddon's" space progressivism. It has never been rereleased in any format." (Anazitisi)
"The album "Armageddon" by the formation PLJ Band is often considered as the most acclaimed Greek progrock music ... The sound is very unique: a captivating progressive blend of acoustic - and electric folk and (space) rock with a strong psychedelic undertone ... One of the most original progrock albums ever made."
