    Looks like the new Angra album will be out in early/mid-Fall. There is plenty of news about it on their website, but check out the latest journal entry from Edu and Rafael. Oh, and it seems a world tour is in the works too! :hotjump:

    I kinda like Angra, they're so much more "special" than most Melodic/Power Metal bands today... if the new records if going to sophisticated as they say, maybe I should check it out.

    I agree that they are more "special". I don't consider them Power Metal though - I think they are a mix of Prog and Power, with some tribal influences thrown in. At any rate, this next album should be great based on all the indications thus far...

    Well I can't wait for their next release. They are an awesome band with the current singer. I thought the old singer was too whiney for me but the new one has a cool voice.
    The only thing is, when they say world tour nearly every band misses out on Australia damn it.

    I love "Rebirth"... but this album frightens me because it features appearances from people like Kai Hansen. I hope this album doesn't turn into goofball power metal.

    Indeed, Angra doesn't need guest appearances by other people.

    Very true, Edu Falischi is an amazing vocalist, one of my favororite. Kiko's playing is also freakin' incredible, if you've seen his instructional video you probably know this. He is a very versatile guitar player too.

    Personally I can't wait to hear the amazing Hansi Kursch trade vocal duties with Edu. \m/

    IT might be cool if they use it in the right context. Did'nt Edguy use him on "Vain Glory Opera"?

    I love Angra, and the thought of them putting out a concept album is definitely very beautiful. I hope this album is on par, or better than Rebirth. That album was truly amazing.

    >it features appearances from people like Kai Hansen.

    All the more reason to get it! Kai (and others) have made guest appearances on Angra albums in the past, and they'll probably do it again.

    >I hope this album doesn't turn into goofball power metal.

    It won't. It'll just be cool power metal.

    If the new album's anything like "Rebirth", it'll be totally totally awesome.

    The best thing that ever happened to Angra was the switch from Andre to Edu.

    I love this board - everyone here has great taste. It's nice to see so many Angra fans and enthusiasts here.

    At any rate, it should be out soon. I think around September or so. We'll see...
