Angra is a progressive power metal formation from São Paulo, Brazil. Formed in 1991, with Andre Matos (vocals), Luís Mariutti (bass), Marcos Antunes (drums), André Linhares (guitar) and Rafael Bittencourt (guitar). In 1992, Linhares was replaced by André Hernandes, later replaced by Kiko Loureiro. They underwent a big line-up change in 2000, when the vocalist Andre Matos, the bassist Luis Mariutti and the drummer Ricardo Confessori, that have entered after Marcos Antunes (now with Sunsarah), left the band and founded Shaman (later renamed to Shaaman and back to Shaman again) together with Luis' brother Hugo Mariutti.

They were then replaced by Edu Falaschi on vocals, Aquiles Priester on drums and Felipe Andreoli on bass.

After being on hiatus for almost two years due to management issues, Angra's website announced their come back with a slight change in it's line-up: Ricardo Confessori returns, replacing Aquiles Priester, who decided to dedicate full-time

ANGRA Temple of Shadows

Album · 2004 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
One of the reasons TEMPLE OF SHADOWS is such a highlight in the discography of Brazilian power metal band ANGRA is because this is the album where they seriously began to incorporate progressive influences into their already powerful take on highly energetic melodic metal. They also create a behemoth of a concept album tackling the issue of a saga of a crusader knight known as The Shadow Hunter who fights against the ideals of the Catholic Church in the 11th century. The album is as energetic as any Dragonforce album but incorporates a gazillion influences like an early Dream Theater release would. The result is a diverse sounding album that takes progressive rock ideas and marries them with power metal and adds native Brazilians sounds and lots more.

Diverse influences can be found in tracks like “Wishing Well” which has a neo-prog feel to it especially in the intro reminding me a bit of Marillion. “Shadow Hunter” has flamenco and a strong Spanish feel to it. Symphonic intros and interludes are plentiful beginning with the very first track but it takes little time at all for the powerful crunch of the melodic march of thundering guitars to signify the triumph of the tasty tunes taking full form. This is an album that I like quite a bit but not to the extent that many others seem to. I find this an exciting ride up to about the last few tracks when I feel the album should have ended. The intensity of the album seems to fizzle out around then and a bunch mellow ballads are not a great way to end this album. In comparison to other successful concept albums this one does not blend the songs together as brilliantly as I think they should considering the subject matter. Nitpickiness aside, this is a great progressive power metal ride.

'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.
