'Best Reached Horizons' - Angra (5/10)

When a band reaches a certain milestone, it’s traditional for something to be released in celebration. Therion, for example, released a collection of French pop covers for their 25th anniversary. In similar fashion, Angra’s “Best Reached Horizons” commemorates the band’s 20th year as a band. Consisting of two discs representing the band’s career up to this point, the compilation is a strong reflection of Angra’s material as a whole. However, with only a single song (a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”) as material exclusive to this release, “Best Reached Horizons” doesn’t offer much to interest the band’s fans.

When reviewing a compilation, I’m left in a tough position; is it better to review the music showcased, or the release in itself? I’ve been a fan of Angra for some time now, and regard them as one of the most technically impressive and accomplished bands in power metal. However, even if the quality of songs here is generally high, there’s little reason to recommend it over one of the original albums. As a two disc, two hour ordeal, it’s not exactly something that welcomes newcomers to the band. While I can appreciate the use of a ‘best-of’ compilation as an effective summary of a band’s career, for the sake of listening itself, there’s far greater satisfaction to be had in one of their full-lengths; might I suggest “Angel Cry” or “Temple of Shadows”?

Onto the music itself, there’s a fine selection of choice cuts throughout the band’s career. The two discs split material from the two vocalists represented (Andre Matos and his replacement, Edu Falaschi), and while the two are fairly similar in style, it was a cool idea to divide the two so that the band’s chronology might be better navigated. “Carry On”, “Angel’s Cry”, “The Course of Nature” and “Arising Thunder” are all highlights for me. On the low end, their cover of Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights” seems like a poor choice, largely due to a contrived vocal performance that tries too hard to reflect the original vocalist’s floaty delivery. The only thing here that should spark the interest of existing Angra fans is their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”. Itself one of my favourite Zep tracks, Angra do a good job of reinvigorating it with their own style.

“Best Reached Horizons” makes for a fine afternoon of high-quality power metal. As a compilation however, the whole thing feels rather unnecessary. I mean, what newcomer is going to go into a band by picking up a two hour compilation, and what fans- sparing the hardcore completionists- are going to buy something consisting almost entirely of music they’ve already heard. It’s possible that I’m missing the point altogether, but as it stands, there are much better places to start with Angra than this.

Warthur
On Temple of Shadows, Angra present a skilled combination of Iron Maiden-influenced power metal and Queensryche-influenced progressive metal. If forced to assign it to one particular category I'd say it's more like prog-influenced power metal than powered-up prog metal, though even this doesn't tell the whole of the story, with some traditional Brazilian music from their homeland working its way into the mix here and there.

Eduardo Falaschi embodies the band's fusion style, reminiscent as he is of the best of Bruce Dickinson or Operation: Mindcrime-era Geoff Tate, and he's joined by a small cast of guest vocalists who are used tastefully to heighten the drama of the album. The band as a whole show expert judgement in playing to the strengths of both power and progressive metal whilst avoiding the pitfalls of both genres; the power metal side to them stops the prog side getting excessively pompous and technical for technicality's sake, whilst their prog side means that where some power metal bands would just cheese out Angra always manage to pull off a surprise which keeps the listener guessing. In short, it's the best of both worlds with the worst of neither.

Best Reached Horizons is the first compilation album to be released by Brazilian power metal act Angra. The release covers the band’s whole discography and perhaps comes at an opportune time given that the band’s vocalist Edu Falaschi departed the band earlier in 2012 and having been with the band for over ten years and made four studio albums with them, it’s like the end of an era for the band. Best Reached Horizons contains two discs of material. The first covers the era of the band where André Matos was the vocalist, and the second Edu Falaschi’s era.

Now, personally speaking, being a compilation Best Reached Horizons naturally suffers from the same issue any compilation release faces, namely value for the artist’s existing fans. Big fans of the band will already have most of the material on offer on such a compilation, and may see such releases as a cash-in without considering that there is a very legitimate way that best of releases like Best Reached Horizons are very helpful to some people. People that somehow haven’t yet heard such a prolific act like Angra and want a good introduction to the band’s music need look no further than Best Reached Horizons to get that introduction.

And I was very much in the camp of lacking a proper introduction to the music of Angra when a promo for Best Reached Horizons came my way and after just one listen, made me both wish I’d paid more attention to these guys years ago and want to prioritise looking into their back catalogue properly. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly what a good best of release should do.

It helps of course that a pretty killer sample of said catalogue has been compiled for the album. But since it’s guitarist Kiko Loureiro who handled picking the tracks it shouldn’t be in doubt that he’d do the catalogue justice as one of only two members who have played on every album by the band, the other being fellow guitarist Rafael Bittencourt, who provides liner notes for the release of Best Reached Horizons. I can’t say I enjoyed every song presented to the same level, in fact this release suggested to me personally that the Angra full-lengths to start with would be Temple of Shadows (2004), Holy Land (1996) and Angels Cry (1993).

There’s also a cover version of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir presented right at the end of the album. This is the only new offering within the package. I think it’s a decent cover, but it alone doesn’t really make the package worth it for existing fans unless of course they are collectors, in which case the presence of the song is neither here nor there. That’s the problem any best of release faces once again though and of course, as with any best of the album could be rated very differently depending on the perspective taken, but I’ve always upheld the rule that any rating given be based on the music alone, and on that count Best Reached Horizons is a more than satisfactory package.

8.0/10

Angra is not only one of the icons of Power Metal, but they are also one of those bands that tread the lines between Power and Prog, enough that they have been accepted as Progressive Metal in some circles. And if I were to pick one album from their collection to say "this is why", Temple of Shadows would be the one I'd pick as evidence. This is a very well rounded album, with a very good dynamic range between acoustic and electric, loud moments and quiet moments, time given to breathe and plenty of "rock out" moments. For myself, I consider this a candidate for Angra's magnum opus - it's a tough choice between this album and "Rebirth", but this is where I feel Angra were at their peak both creatively and as far as showing their musical ability.

"Angel´s Cry" is the debut full-length album by Brazilian power metal act Angra. The album was recorded at Kai Hansen´s (Helloween, Gamma Ray, Iron Saviour) studio in Hamburg, Germany and produced by Charlie Bauerfeind and Sascha Paeth (one part of the prolific producer team Paeth/ Miro who have worked with most of the european power metal elite. Most notably Rhapsody of Fire). It´s noteworthy that the drums on the album are played by Alex Holzwarth (Sieges Even, Rhapsody of Fire) as future drummer Ricardo Confessori was not a member of the band at the time when the band recorded the album even though he is present on the photos in album booklet.

The music is on the album is neo-classical inspired european power metal with a few progressive elements. At least the music is not progressive metal the way I define it. But I guess that´s a matter of definition and it really isn´t important because the high quality of the music overshadows any genre discussion. After listening to "Angel´s Cry" it´s obvious to me that Angra are Helloween worshippers ("Keeper of the Seven Keys part I and II" era). The fast paced double bass drums, the melodic guitars, symphonic keyboards and the memorable, anthemic and melodic vocal lines sung with high pitched voice are all trademarks in the genre. So it´s safe to say that the music on "Angel´s Cry" is not very original. What makes this album stand out from the rest of the pack is the quality of the music though. And it´s very high quality compositions IMO. There´s the fast paced euro power metal tracks like "Carry On", "Time" and "Streets of Tomorrow" but "Angel´s Cry" is actually a rather diverse album which also features tracks like the power ballad "Stand Away" (on a sidenote listen to those extremely high pitched vocal parts. Fantastic IMO), "Never Understand" (the most progressive song on the album) and the symphonic closing track "Lasting Child: I The Parting Words II Renaissance". The Kate Bush track "Wuthering Heights" is also featured in a cover version on the album. The version is true to the original but very well done. The vocal performance by lead vocalist André Matos is nothing short of outstanding on that song. High pitched falsetto. A real treat and a rare treat.

The musicianship on the album is excellent. The guitar playing by Kiko Loureiro is melodic yet powerful but the prize does go to André Matos. He is an outstanding vocalist who masters his style to perfection. He doesn´t invent anything new but he´s got a great voice and a brilliant technique.

The production is very strong allthough the drum sound could have been a bit more powerful at times.

"Angel´s Cry" is one of the few euro power metal albums I´ve listened to in a long time which has impressed me. I´m rather enthusiatic about the album and it fully deserves a 4 star rating. It´s too bad it took me so many years before I finally gave it a try. Very recommendable to fans of euro power metal IMO. It´s as kitch and cheesy as most other albums in the genre but if that doesn´t matter to you this might excite you as much as it excites me.
