PostSubject: Angra latest album Omni   Wed Feb 28, 2018 8:46 am

Before I get into the main topic I need to say that I have hardly listened to any prog metal or any of the modern power metal bands in the past 2 years ( Power metal had gotten a new bizarre definition in the 90s- Helloween and Gamma Ray derivatives-  which is completely different from the one we, old metal heads, used in the 80s thus my comment ) except Fates Warning and Queensyrche. In the past I was a big fan of Angra but I stopped listening to them in 2007/2008. I had seen on the internet some news that addressed the participation of the "soap pop country" singer Sandy at their latest recently released album Omni so when I went to check its results I supposed to be no less than awful,  I  then found myself listening to the album and and next to their previous ones  ( post Andre Mattos era, because I am not a big fan of the first 3 albums ) and enjoying them a lot.

Has anyone heard their latest album "Omni" or had a similar experience like I had ?

I still need to get into this band properly. I did purchase their 5 in 1 original albums box a while ago, but i have yet to give them a good listen. This said, i will probably check their other releases.

I think this boxset contains all records with former singer André Mattos. I am not a big fan of his vocals or his songwriting and playing ( he was the main composer ) because he likes to have orchestrations and keyboards high in the mix and sometimes I find them too stagy for my tastes. He left the band in 1999 and Angra started a new phase with heavier songs, a better singer, more guitar oriented songs and more rhythmic variations. I could say that the Mattos era can be described as symphonic power metal unlike the era without him which I think to be more progressive power metal oriented, with a lot of shredding in an old Symphony X way.

Anyway, a lot of people loves the Mattos era. I had the chance to see one oft he last Mattos concerts in 1999 and it was pretty good.

Angra never stood out to me. Too many similar sounding bands.

The only one I own is Temple of Shadows. I got it for the interesting guests.

I used to like early Angra too. I played "Holy Land" Cd gazillion of times, the point is I cannot stand Andre Matos anymore, except in the first Viper "Soldiers Of Sunrise". I am certain you know that Angra was a band made up by a local metal magazine called Rock brigade which gathered a team of high skilled musicians and created Angra.

I got Omni a few days ago but haven't listened to it yet. Their last album I liked a lot. I was skeptical with Fabio Leone doing the vocals but he works. I like his vocals for the other bands he has done but Angra has a specific sound so I wasn't sure what it was going to be but I actually enjoy this Era of Angra the best maybe. We'll see what happens when I listen to the new album.

I haven't listened to much Angra at all. Just an occasional song here and there. But I'll be seeing them in Sept. when I go to ProgPower.
