Two months ago I came across this amazing brazillian band that plays a power metal quite similar to Angra and Glory Opera. Amazing South American power metal, their first album is just amazing, and they will be releasing their second studio album anytime soon (if they didnt already.)

Anyways, this band is a most have to any power metal fan.

Have just been listening to the songs at their MySpace and they're not bad at all...I think I prefer 'Heart Of The Gods' of the four songs availible, but 'And Let The Show Begin' is quite good as well

The first Album is much better than the second one as far as production goes, but they have only one song from this album avaliable in their myspace

An amazing band, very progressive, their sound is like jazzy, very latin and for much very symphonic, this guys are awesome. The vocalist is froma a band called Eterna, and i have the cd The Gate, and i must say it's amazing too, vary power/progressive.

I wouldnt say they are original, but they are indeed a really good band. Its pretty much south american power metal (which is similar to euro power, but happier XD)

In Shambala there are lots of folk/tribal elements that make this band really original (similar to Angra. its true, but more original than others..) The first album wasnt that big deal, just normal.. Shambala shows a really good improvment, a band that is creating its own carachteristic.
The name of the band on the demos was ''Uirapuru''.. its better than Aquaria, they should have keep it.

First post here, heh. I can't get enough of this band. Came across them right after Shambala was officially released, and I've been in love with the band ever since. Hadn't heard a breath fresh of air, so to speak, from power metal in a long time, but when I first heard Luxaeterna, I was floored by how good it was.

I think Shambala is slightly better simply because there is more experimentation on it and a very ethnic vibe throughout. Skies of Amazonia is my favorite track by far, there's something about it that really speaks to me.

Absolutely phenomenal band, I just really wish they'd get their albums officially released in the US. They just recently got Shambala released in Brazil, I believe. It's a shame and should be a sin that they're so overlooked. I'm dying for news about a third album, hopefully we'll get some this year.

I can't even choose a favorite song of theirs, as a whole. I was going to say Skies of Amazonia but I listened to Judgement Day again today and wow, I'm back on a listening spree of these guys.

Just bought both special editions of their albums, too. Should have them in a few days - can't wait!
