    Angra's guitarist, Kiko Loureiro, has two amazing solo instrumental albums, one in a metal/fusion style, the other jazz. If you are into good guitar playing, check them out.

    Also, if you like Angra, check out Shaman/Shaaman, the band formed by the ex-members after the split back in 2000-ish. It is now defunct, but they put out two cool albums and a nice DVD. A bit more simple and heavy than Angra, but an interesting blend of power metal and Brazilian influences.



    (^ Disregard the anime video obviously...)



    Brazilian crowds look wild.
