    I've seen him live with Angra 4 times (1 on the holy land tour, 3 on the Fireworks tour).. but the last time was in 99, so It's been a while for me as well...

    This will be the first time that I see him perform live. I loved the stuff that he did with Angra and his solo album is kick ass. I have been working on getting the Shaman that he is on and from what I have heard, that stuff is the shit as well. Should be a kick ass headliner!!!

    I'm psyched for his performance, just on the strength of Holy Land alone. :worship:


    Andre is just about the only high-pitched/falsetto singer I can stand for longer than 5 minutes...maybe because he never sounded forced or 'thin' in that register to me. (I.e., maybe I'm saying he's not singing in falsetto? Dunno... :) )

    Matos has released four great albums as a part of four different bands, all quite different from each other:

    Viper - Theatre of Fate
    Angra - Holy Land
    Virgo - s/t
    Shaman - Reason

    I can't think of anyone else who has had so much success in so many different configurations, so there must be something magic about the man.

    It's because he's not ashamed of his wussiness. He says "If I'm gonna sing like a girl, I'm gonna be a full-on girly-girl, and be soft and tender and lilting, not like the rest of these weirdos who try to sing like screaming angry manly-girls. Cuz who wants to listen to that unnatural combination of a girl with a penis?"

    That because save for a few songs, that album is not as good compared to the first album. I liken it to Angra's Fireworks which wasn't received well either.

    Basically they dropped all of the native sounds from those two albums and just did straight ahead Metal albums. Some fans hated it and some fans liked it. I'm in the former group.

    A little update on Andre:

    "Matos and band are currently in the final stages of mixing their new album. He is currently in Germany with producer Sascha Paeth, taking care of the final details of the album, which should be released in August in Japan and Europe, and subsequently in Brazil. After two long European tours this year, the band is scheduled to play a few select shows in the Americas, to finish off the Time To Be Free World Tour, including a headlining slot at ProgPower USA. Additionally, in 2009, the band plans to go back to Europe and Japan for the new album release and a few very special surprises for the fans."

    Cool news indeed, I will look forward for the new album. Chances are that they may play a new song during PPX presentation :headbang:

    Hey Glenn,

    I know you've done this before with a few bands. Did you make any specific personal requests as far as Andre's setlist?

    What does it matter? You're going to spend the whole set squealing like a little girl anyway, so you won't even hear the actual music.

    Dude, Matos was it for me man. To me it's as big as Angra, Edguy, Gamma Ray, or any of the other bad ass headliners of the past. Dude, I know he's been doing a Viper material in his set. It's cool he knows what his fans want to hear. I'm glad he's not like many artists who seem ashamed of their past and if it's over five years old, peace out cos you ain't hearing em live.

    Well, if it's a special request and something Matos usually wouldn't do live, it's got to be ZITO.
