Angra was a powermetal band with progressive and neo-classical elements, from Brazil

They had their peak and were very successful in the 1990ies and released quite a number of discs. Though the sound may seem dated on some of the songs the music still has a lot to say for

It is a classic band you should check out, I have made a playlist for your exploration, my fav albums are Fireworks and Rebirth, the latest, Aqua (2010)  I do not like so much

Latest news: Singer Edu Falaschi declared he’s leaving Angra for good taking bass player Felipe Andreoli with him to pursue a former side project that has ripened into the band Almah full time


Guitar player Kiko Loureiro has already released some solo albums


Angels Cry – 1993
Holy Land – 1996
Fireworks – 1998
Rebirth – 2001
Temple of Shadows – 2004
Aurora Consurgens – 2006
