Angra (feat. Lenine) - 'Vida Seca' (official music video)

Angra - 'Cycles of Pain'
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή ουσιαστικά μετά από μία πενταετία για τους Angra (αν δεν συνυπολογίσουμε ep, singles, live albums, συλλογές κλπ). Ο διάδοχος του album "Ømni" και δέκατος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Βραζιλιάνων power metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "Cycles of Pain" και κυκλοφόρησε προ μηνός...

Δελτίο τύπου: «It's been five long years since iconic Brazilian power metal kings Angra released their latest album, "Ømni". Finally the band is back now with new music, proving once again to be one of the most unique bands of the genre.

Angra's signature sound - merging classic virtuosic power metal with progressive elements and rhythms - is on full display here and makes "Cycles Of Pain" a highlight for every fan of sophisticated first-class metal.

The band's long-running line-up (founded in 1991) is joined by former Rhapsody of Fire vocalist Fabio Lione since 2013, who once again delivers an incredible performance.

Guest appearances by multiple Latin Grammy winner Lenine (on the partly Portuguese song "Vida Seca") as well as Amanda Somerville (Avantasia, Kiske / Somerville) and Vanessa Moreno round off Angra's new masterpiece perfectly. "Cycles Of Pain" was mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward (Helloween, Magnum, Firewind).»

Παρακολουθούμε το μουσικό βίντεο του τραγουδιού "Vida Seca", για το οποίο ο κιθαρίστας Rafael Bittencourt και ο μπασίστας Felipe Andreoli μας λένε:

Rafael Bittencourt: «Vida Seca' means a lot to us in ANGRA because it expresses what we are: a metal band from Brazil. So the song is a combination of prog elements with Brazilian vibes.

It is tough to create something meaningful and deep for the people without going deep into ourselves, and going deep also means reaching and accepting my background.

I know it sounds odd for many traditional metal fans, but it wouldn't be honest from my side if I wasn't making music inspired by my surroundings, the people, the habits, the sounds.

The song and the video 'Vida Seca' both have a little bit of all of that in a poetic yet truthful way, disclosing the discrepancy of Brazilian social dystopia. It's certainly one of my favourites of the album.»

Felipe Andreoli: «Vida Seca' is my favourite track on »Cycles Of Pain« and one of the songs I'm most proud of. It starts with a strong Brazilian accent that develops into a more progressive sound.

The dynamics within the song help tell the story of the lyrics, taking you through the character's journey of vulnerability, growth, self-doubt and acceptance. We are extremely privileged to have the amazing, multi Latin Grammy winning LENINE singing the first part in Portuguese.

As someone born in the Northeast of Brazil, a region where poverty and underdevelopment is rampant, he brings authenticity to the song, giving the character a legitimate voice.

Lyrically, 'Vida Seca' talks about a child who's born in poverty, a situation all too common in Brazil and many other countries. Despite the hardship of his childhood, throughout his life he ends up having opportunities and ultimately reaches a better condition.

It's a view on meritocracy and how unfair it is to expect the same level of achievement from people with very different starting conditions.»
