18/11/2014 - VERY SPECIAL GUEST STARS ON THE NEW ANGRA RECORD

Brazilian/Italian metallers ANGRA will release their new album, "Secret Garden", on January 16, 2015 via earMUSIC. The CD was pre-produced by Roy Z (JUDAS PRIESTBRUCE DICKINSONHALFORD) and recorded and produced in Sweden by Jens Bogren (KREATORARCH ENEMYOPETHDRAGONFORCE). One of the great strengths of the album is the variety of great guest musicians: Simone Simons from the Dutch band EPICA divinely interprets the song "Secret Garden" while the great metal diva Doro Pesch sings an exciting vocal duet with Rafael Bittencourt on "Crushing Room". Actually, the various appearances of Rafael's lead vocals make for some of the strongest moments on this album, causing a contrast in tone and interpretation in comparison to Fabio. This also becomes evident in the cover that the band chose to record, "Synchronicity II" by THE POLICE.
