1994. When one first get in touch with the bases of Metal, some country names clearly emerge such as Germany, Sweden and the USA. But very soon, these list expands to other lands and if Brazil doesn't come to one's mind at first , bands like Sepultura back then in the 90s made themselves a worldwide fame and soon after another Brazilian phenomenon known as Angra broke through the European Heavy/Power Metal scene with their acclaimed debut release, "Angels Cry".

If we look in the Metal world, we won't find a lot of well-known Brazilian bands... but there are two bands that almost every Metal fan knows: Sepultura and Angra. Angra is probably lesser-known than Sepultura, but in my opinion they're definitely better.

There are two types of Power Metal: the one which is powerful, thrashy and the one which is melodic and beautiful. Obviously, Angra plays the second type of Power Metal. They have really great melodic songs along all their discography, but here I will talk only about "Angels Cry". Angels Cry is a good album, there's no doubt about it. The best things in this album are probably the rhythm changes and the great melodies. They are playing a beautiful and slow ballad but...surprise!! They suddenly turn up the intensity of the song and you can hear a completely different song in the time of 30 seconds, it's great!! I love these rhythm changes, specially in "Stand Away", which is probably the best song of this album. It has an awesome and really progressive and melodic interlude.

That's THE ALBUM.

Great intro, excellent ending, André voice is awesome and this album is filled with catchy riffs and cheesy lyrics everywhere. Also that album has one of the best cover songs I've ever heard. A must have album for any power metal fan.

I hated this cover they made, it sounds so gay! I hope nobody gets irritated with what I said... Andre Matos is the best brazilian singer ever, although I prefer Edu's voice.

You couldn't expect more than what André did As the original sound is extremely weird...

An excellent Power Metal album and even better as a debut, this certainly showed Angra's musical ambition. The guitar solos are clean and unique, the tempo fits each song perfectly, and although the vocals can at times get on your nerves (which is one thing that drives some away from the genre itself), they really add to the atmosphere generated by the sound.

Proves André was as good as then as he still is now. The track with Kai Hansen & Sascha Paeth guesting was a metal-free letdown, but "Carry On" and "Streets of Tomorrow" more than compensate.
