By the time the double album finally was released almost two years later in June 1972, and despite having sold over 20 million albums, the band had already split. Both Vangelis and Roussos pursued successful solo careers: Roussos had a thriving solo career as a pop singer, and Vangelis was now scoring – using strictly electronic music – movie soundtracks. This film score composer career brought him much success for the next three decades, including such titles as 1982's Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and 2004's Oliver Stone's Alexander, and an Oscar for the soundtrack of Chariots of Fire..
Koulouris worked with both on occasion, and Sideras pursued a less successful solo career, releasing an album and the single "Rising Sun" after the break-up. As of 2013, he still lives in Greece and still playing live with his band.
Despite their short existence and lack of hit singles outside of Europe, the band is respected as a cult band, and their album 666 is often considered their masterwork in addition to being one of rock music's first concept albums. The album caught the attention of many in the progressive rock field, including Yes frontman Jon Anderson, who would later collaborate with Vangelis. Contemporary progressive rock acts such as Astra have also cited the band as an influence.»
