Edu Falaschi Announces “Rebirth of Shadows Tour” – Performing Angra Classics Across Brazil

Five years after leaving Angra in 2012, internationally renowned Brazilian power vocalist Edu Falaschi will be embarking on his “Rebirth of The Shadows Tour” across Brazil where he will be performing songs from albums he has appeared on such as “Rebirth”, “Hunters and Prey”, “Temple of Shadows”, “Aurora Consurgens” and “Aqua”. Joining Falaschi on the tour will be ex-Angra members drummer Aquilles Priester and keyboardist Fabio Laguna. The tour originally began in July of this summer with 7 packed shows that totaled over 10,000 in attendance. Now it returns for 23 dates in December and January (dates listed below).

“I’ve had many requests for concerts singing Angra! It’s natural since I was Angra’s lead singer for 12 years. Now Angra fans around the globe can have the chance to hear the Angra anthems performed by the original singer in an emotional and nostalgic experience that will bring back the good feelings from the golden years! I plan to perform first in South America and from there reach fans across USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.” says Falaschi.

In 2016, Falaschi released both his solo album “Moonlight” and “E.V.O”, the 5th studio album from ALMAH via Test Your Metal Records. Throughout his career, Edu Falaschi has sold over 1 million albums, recorded 15 albums, along with several world tours that have included Japan, Europe, UAE and South America plus many important festivals like Wacken, Sweden Rock, Monsters of Rock, Rock in Rio, Progpower, Rock Machina, Gods of Metal, etc.

New Album “The Magickal Presence of Occult Forces” Streaming In Full From Necromante

Today, Brazilian black metal cult Necromante streams the entirety of the highly anticipated debut album “The Magickal Presence of Occult Forces” over at Necromance at this location, or just simply check it out in the player at the bottom. The band drops the album internationally today (October 6th) via Iron Bonehead Productions.

Formed in 2007, Necromante has patiently stirred its cauldron of sound over the course of a couple demos, a mini-album, and a live album. Hailing from Brazil, within that cauldron, of course, can be found ancient ingredients like Sarcofago, Vulcano, Sextrash, Mystifier, and Impurity, but the power-trio finesse forth a sound that’s less focused on tempting the corners of chaos as it is conjuring an arcane, otherworldly aura – in that sense, not dissimilar to Impurity’s classic “Into the Ritual Chamber.” However, on evidence of :The Magickal Presence of Occult Forces,” Necromante is truly a unique entity unto itself, and masterfully so.

Witness “The Magickal Presence of Occult Forces” and hail the new gods of Necromante right here:

Daydream XI Premieres New Song “A Cup Of Agony”

Brazilian outfit Daydream XI recently signed to Sensory Records and is gearing up to release “The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn” on six-panel digipak CD with a 28 page booklet and via digital formats on September 22nd.

This high octane mixture of full force metal with power and prog sounds is highly recommended for fans of Dream Theater, Symphony X, and Pain Of Salvation.

Ahead of next month’s release, today we’re excited to exclusively premiere new song “A Cup Of Agony.” Think you can drink all the way through to the last drop? Find out below!

Vocalist / guitarist Tiago Masseti comments: “We are very excited that our first live appearance in the U.S. will be at ProgPower USA. The festival’s audience and crew have been supporting us since we released our first album and it couldn’t be more appropriate to bring this new material to them first hand.

“In the song ‘A Cup Of Agony’ we join the Stuntman, one of the attractions of the Circus, as he reflects about the concept of pain. He draws a parallel between physical and psychological pain and how either affects us and get us addicted.

“Doing his stunts, he deals with physical pain on a daily basis, turning it into entertainment. And as a performer and someone who takes such an aggressive element of human life and turns it into art he deals with a great deal of psychological pain. And he drinks from this cup, feeding his pain in the quest for attention and recognition. And he nurtures it, endlessly.”

The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn by Daydream XI

For new album “The Circus Of The Tattered And Torn,” Daydream XI embraces the progressive side of music in a dark concept album. The concept is a metaphor to express that we are drawn to each other more by our weaknesses and our flaws than our strengths and virtues.

It’s portrayed through a journey, where Phillip, the Circus master, takes his new apprentice, Circe, across the various acts of this Circus. Like what you hear? Pre-orders are online here.

1. Ticket 000011
2. Open The Curtains
3. Trust-Forged Knife
