Angra and the band Rosa Vocal

MS Metal Press / Angra official note :

"Angra has recently registered the last participation on its seventh studio album. It is the female group Rosa Vocal created on 2005 in São Paulo at CLAM - Centro Livre de Aprendizagem Musical, under the supervision of Fernanda Gianesella. “We knew them at Norcal where we have been working on the record. They are also finishing their one and every day some of them bring cake to studio. As I am constantly hungry and not shy, I always took a piece of that. So we became friends and afterwards I knew that the acoustic guitar player, Italo Peron, had been my Harmony teacher. After that it was easy to get in contact with all of them” said the guitarist Rafael Bittencourt.

Rosa Vocal is a project which intends to vocalize the Brazilian popular songs through the Harmony. The line-up was formed in 2007 by Fernanda Gianesella, Ana Bacana, Gisela Freire, Isa Elizabetsky, Katya Delfino, Maria Zuma and Paula Duarte. “After my gastronomic experience, Brendan (owner of Norcal Studios and co-producer of our record) had the idea to invite them to take part on the album. They agreed, I made the arrangements for one of the tracks and the result was great. It is a song like 'The Shadow Hunter', I guess the fans will enjoy it” said the artist.

Angra continues to work on its seventh studio album at Norcal Studios in São Paulo and it is planned to be released in Brazil and worldwide in August this year."

Angra talks about Ronnie James Dio

MS Metal Press / Angra official note :

"Last Sunday morning, May 16th, the Heavy Metal lost one of its main icons: the vocalist Ronnie James Dio (Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, DIO, Heaven & Hell). A thousand fans and musicians around the world, from different generations, were completely touched in that day when one of the most symbolic voices of Metal has stopped to sing due to a complicated health treatment of stomach cancer.

The greatest Brazilian Heavy Metal band, ANGRA, has published the statements from Rafael Bittencourt (guitars), Kiko Loureiro (guitars) and Edu Falaschi (vocals) sending the condolences to the Ronnie’s family.

Kiko Loureiro : “Nobody understood better than him how to sing this music style. Dio was definitely an example to all of us showing that we can perform on the stages for many years with the same energy and attitude.

I remember perfectly the t-shirt that I loved to wear when I was 13 – it had 'The Last In Line' stamp, one of his solo records. The most inspirer is that I saw it for the first time when my guitar instructor showed me that the music was exactly what I wanted to do for all my life.

Dio was short with a giant voice always saying that Metal bands could not play ballads but at the same time the introduction of their songs became immortal for the style.

'Live Evil', from Black Sabbath, is one of the records that I heard most in my life. All the tracks are exactly the way they should be sung.

I would rather “Look Out” to “We Love You All”. The best Heavy Metal voice will be forever with us.

I send all my thoughts and condolences to the Ronnie’s family. Now I am going to play 'Don’t Talk To Strangers' to make me feel better.”

Rafael Bittencourt : “We lost Ronnie James Dio! He was a rare example of an ethical person who loved his work. He was really dedicated to his fans in a fascinating way. His sword and strength actually represented his noble and good heart that he always showed completely when was on stage. He was a little giant while singing, a singular artist and an inspirer person. Rest in peace, master”

Edu Falaschi : “Last Sunday night, May 16th, I was returning from Manaus after having an unforgettable weekend with my band Angra when received one of the saddest notices in my life: Ronnie Dio has left us.

The world has lost the Best Heavy Metal singer of all time but, above all of that, we lost one of the most brilliant souls that already existed! An artist who loved his fans and did what really liked: to sing Heavy Metal!

Dio was my great master, a person who inspired me as an artist and a human being! My only idol has gone! It will be very hard to get over this sad feeling in my heart!

I would like to send my deepest condolences to Dio’s family. That God be with them!

Anyway, his art, music and especially his unique voice will always be in our hearts!

Dio, we will love you forever! Thank you for having been with us! May 16th the saddest day of Rock and Heavy Metal!”

Edu Falaschi talks about special guests on new Angra's album

MS Metal Press / Angra official note :

"The musicians continue to work at Norcal Studios to finish the production of their seventh studio album which already has a title that will be announced soonest. “Now it is almost done indeed! We are finishing the keyboards, improving some parts and mainly listening carefully everything that we have done until now”, said the vocalist Edu Falaschi.

During the production, the group invited some artists that added such a great quality to the record. “We counted on Zeca - Kiko’s brother, and my beloved brother Tito Falaschi to take part in some tracks. They recorded the backing vocals that touched all of us at the studio, since this album has been created in a very positive atmosphere. We have been working like a family again and we are extremely happy for this”, said the vocalist. “Anna Flavia, from the band Izi, was another guest that took part in the CD. She has her own style for singing which is different from the others Heavy Metal vocalists, and that was exactly what we were looking for. We didn’t want an obvious thing. We tried to reach a unique result. And we did it, you may be sure of that!” said the artist.

The new record is planned to be released in August this year and then the band will announce a world tour. "
