Angra is a progressive power metal band from São Paulo, Brazil known for its use of symphonic interludes and samba elements in their songs.

Angra features one of the most virtuosic guitar pairings in heavy metal; Kiko Loureiro & Rafael Bettencourt.

The neo-classical, melodic, shredding guitar solos & guitar harmony parts will definately appeal to guitar fans...

Personally, i feel Angra really began to shine when Eduardo Falaschi replaced André Matos as the vocalist...Matos voice was kinda too whiny for me...

Here's "Nova Era" from their 2001 album "Rebirth", the 1st album featuring Eduardo Falaschi
