Biography

Angra was formed in 1991, picking right up where Viper had still left off performing neo-classical progressive metallic. Vocalist Andre Matos remaining Viper following the Theater of Fate recording due to innovative differences. Andre quickly installed with guitarist Kiko Loureiro to create Angra; these were became a member of by bassist Luis Mariutti, guitarist Rafael Bittencourt, and drummer Marco Antunes. Following a demonstration entitled Achieving Horizons, Antunes was changed on drums by Ricardo Confessori. This finished the lineup because of their first full-length record, Angels Cry, which fulfilled with vital and commercial achievement in Brazil and European countries. It was mainly a hard intensifying metal set, slowing limited to a remake of Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights.” 2 yrs afterwards, in 1995, Angra documented their second record, entitled Holy Property. While maintaining exactly the same primary audio as Angels Cry, Angra demonstrated subtle Brazilian affects a lot more on Holy Property within the rhythms and support vocals. Two EPs, Holy Live and Independence Call, made an appearance between 1996 and 1997. Another record, Fireworks, released in 1998, is normally a more self-explanatory hard rock record. The classical affects from Angels Cry as well as the Brazilian affects from Holy Property are both eliminated, being changed by self-explanatory steel. In 2001 longtime vocalist Andre Matos still left the group and was changed by Edu Falaschi. The ensuing record, the prog/neo-classical steel Rebirth, was a go back to type for the group. They implemented that record’s achievement with Temple of Shadows in 2005.

#Quote
1 Take more deep breaths, wake up earlier, and don't live and die by what happens every day. Much like a film, life is not about singular moments but the culmination of all these moments strewn together.
2 I am constantly editing in my head. For me, editing is a very emotionally exhausting process because the work doesn't stop after I clock out.
