After a long period of mystery, ANGRA has announced the official title of its seventh fulllength: “Aqua”. It will be the first material released in the last four years and after the return ofthe drummer Ricardo Confessori to the band.

“Aqua” is a Latin word and means “water” in English. It represents the unique style that presented ANGRA to the world. Its incredible ability in mixing various music genres, transcending from Classical to Metal, Folklore to Modern, Pop to Experimental, has an unquestionable relevance nowadays and it is described in each detail of the new work.

The experience of great musicians like Eduardo Falaschi (singer), Rafael Bittencourt and Kiko Loureiro (guitar players), Felipe Andreoli (bassist) and Ricardo Confessori (drummer) is one of the characteristics easily heard after an initial audition of “Aqua”. Artists who reached a higher level in an important moment of their careers and united the perfect way of playing, good sounds, conscious experimentalism joined to attractive themes.

The concept and the musical atmospheres of this new record, as well as the main classics of ANGRA discography are based on a rich and involving history. The whole composition of the album was directly inspired by “The Tempest” – the last play written by William Shakespeare and shown here through an epic vision compared to its dark side. “We really dedicated ourselves to the last work of Shakespeare to create “Aqua”. Besides all the qualities of the text, we founded out that the element “water” is one of the main characters of the history. It transforms itself during the cycles and changes the things around. It represents the rage of high tides and tempests, and then the forgiveness and wisdom in calm. Everything happens after a violent storm that occurs in the sea, in an island hill. While the wild waters come from up and down, a ship and the entire crew are fighting for surviving. As from this point, we developed one very interesting narrative that will get the attention of the listeners”, said the guitarist Rafael Bittencourt.

“Aqua” was produced by a new team that confirms the actual renovation purpose of the band. The album was entirely arranged by the musicians, co-produced and mixed by Brendan Duffey and Adriano Daga, from Norcal Studios, and mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering Studios, in California (EUA).

The art concept was created by the renowned Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes supervised by Rafael Bittencourt and Kiko Loureiro. “We have been worked with Isabel de Amorim since the “Fireworks” album so we wanted to change the artistic style in this new CD and the work made by Gustavo Sazes was exactly what we were looking for. Actually he is already our website designer and it was a natural choice”, said Kiko Loureiro.

“Aqua” will be released in Japan on July 31st by JVC/Victor and will be distributed in Europe by SPV/Steamhammer afterwards. In Brazil it will be self-financed and released on August 17th. “We need to have a support for the international market and the SPV and JVC have always been done an excellent work related to the promotion of our last records. But in Brazil we will make it different this time. It will be self-financed so that we can control everything referred to the CD”, said the vocalist Edu Falaschi.
