To come right to the point: Angra’s latest album, Aurora Consurgens, not only marks the Brazilian power metal act’s fifteenth live anniversary, it’s also a real classic of its genre, a landmark recording, a true masterpiece. With their current line-up consisting of Kiko Loureiro (guitar), Rafael Bittencourt (guitar), Felipe Andreoli (bass), Aquiles Priester (drums) and Edu Falaschi (vocals), their new album sees Angra get down to business more profoundly and tougher than ever before. Inspired by the book of the same name by the globally renowned author, philosopher and theologian, St Thomas Aquinas, about the problem of opposites in alchemy, the album’s lyrics deal with different mental conditions, such as suicidal tendencies, schizophrenia, manic depression, and apathy. The musical direction of the tracks suits the subject matter: varied, deep, expressive, and hauting in terms of their technical translation. The interplay between the two world class guitarists, Loureiro and Bittencourt, and their vocalist, Edu Falaschi, produces creative highlights by the second.

Aurora Consurgens was recorded at the House Of Audio studios in Karlsdorf, Germany, and the Via Musique Estúdios in São Paulo, Brazil. The album was mixed by Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69) again, and the songs were mastered by the renowned Finnish sound magician, Mika Jussila. This diversity of the artists involved is also reflected in the album’s stylistic variety. Although Angra sound tougher and more dynamic than ever before, the band’s typical trademarks, which are based on Brazilian music and expressed in numerous percussion arrangements and orchestra parts, are still present. Another highlight is the cover artwork by the Portuguese artist, Isabel de Amorin. In terms of the marketing of their current album, Angra have proved their innovative spirit: the song, ‘The Course Of Nature’ is available to their fans as an Internet download even before the release of the album, the video clip to support this number having been shot in São Paulo under the direction of Carina Zaratin at the beginning of September.

Only a few days ago, the band concluded their 124-show Temple Of Shadows world tour at the Metal Union Festival in Brazil and are already getting ready for their upcoming tour. Following a number of warm-up shows in their native country, Angra are scheduled to travel Asia, a major highlight being their show at the Loud Park Festival in Tokyo, followed by the European leg. So keep your diaries ready for dates near you!
