Brazilian metallers Almah, led by ex-Angra singer Edu Falaschi are proud to unleash their new album entitled E.V.O., out now as of September 23rd and available in North America (US/MX/CA) via Test Your Metal Records. E.V.O. is also available through Pride & Joy Music (EU) and King Records (Japan).
E.V.O. is the 5th studio album from the band and was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil at IMF Studios by Tito Falaschi then mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud (Fear Factory, Dragonforce, Baby Metal, etc) at Mix Unlimited in Los Angeles, California. The release is a concept album based on the evolution of people’s mind and soul during the so-called Age of Aquarius – the new era that the world is about to live. The author of the concept, Edu Falaschi, touches different subjects connected to the main idea, creating very positive lyrics for the album’s atmosphere.
Musically E.V.O. brings a fresh and powerful sound with the typical modern and heavy Almah touch, but this time one will be able to realize that it also has a direct connection with Angra’s Rebirth (the first Angra album with Edu Falaschi’s vocals). The compositions are a pleasant mix of contemporary rock, modern power and prog metal. The vocal lines on E.V.O. are very powerful, classic in style and the vocals have a higher pitch compared to previous Almah records. It’s very melodic, clean and in the bel canto style.
