Band: Angra

Home Page:

There is really no metal band quite like Angra. A metal band from Brazil that incorporates Euro-style power metal with their native tribal insturmentations. The band formed in the early 90's and statred out with former Viper vocalist Andre Matos. Angra expoled onto the metal scene with the release of "Angels Cry" and followed up with the classic "Holy Land" album. In five short years, Angra became one of the pillars of the flurishing power/progressive metal scene overseas, which in turn soon landed them a deal with Century Media to release their albums for the first time in the states. in late 99' vocalist Andre Matos, Bassist Luis Mariutti and drummer Ricardo Confessori broke away from Angra voicing personal/musical diffrences and formed their own band under the name 'Shaman', leaving founders and guitarists Rafael Bittencourt and Kiko Loureiro to carry on the Angra name alone. No more than a year later, the two guitarist regrouped with an entierly new line-up, and a fresh new sound. The year 2001 saw the release of their strongest effort to date "Rebirth" debuting new vocalist Edu Falaschi, Bassist Felipe Andreoli and drummer Anquiles Priester. The title of their latest album was most definalty a fitting label, fueling a stronger more flexable Angra.
