This is an absolute masterpiece, it excels as both power metal album, and as an all round good musical experience...
The great thing about Angra is that none of their songs are the same, on this album alone we have Power Metal (Spread the Fire), upbeat and reflective ballad (Wishing Well) and an amazing and relaxed album closer, the the classical masterpiece that is Gate XIII.
Angra are probably one of the best Power Metal bands in the world, and in my opinion this is their best album, even showing up the amazing Rebirth.
It's amazing.

Angra for me are at the top of this genre. Only the prog-metal abilities of dream theatre can touch Angra, and this album, for me, is their best creation.

I have no idea how you would go about writing this album, its so complex, so technical and yet brilliantly fun to listen to. Edu Falaschi (vocalist) records soooo well and Kiko and Rafeal are still the best guitar combo in the genre.

Also, the diversity of the writing is stunning. Listen to the wonderful technicalities of the beggining of "temple of hate" and "angels and deamons", and compare that the the classical guitar of "the shadow hunter" or the brilliance of "wishing well"

If that wasnt enough we get two great guest appearences. One from Kai Hanson (Gamma ray and helloween) and one from the fantastic Hansi Kursch (blind guardian). How good is that?

this album is amazing. if you like this genre you must buy it.

You always hear a lot of people saying they only like the old versions of bands.

That is because if you hear the old, classic stuff, and the new stuff, the new stuff tends to sound more commercial, mainstream and cheesy (i.e. metallica), even if they do say they have gone back to their roots (a somewhat fashion in thrash metal), and they still sound as commercial as the previous album.

Angra is always changing. Not progressing, but exploring different techniques and blending in Brazilian culture. I suppose it can be argued that this album is an acquired taste, as it took me a while to actually like tracks 7 - 13 (where it slows down and Brazilian rhythms are much more influential). This is now my favorite part of the album, despite I having gone off metal, listening to it only occasionally (now for instance, The Shadow Hunter).

It is definitely a unique album, with elements of power, thrash, melodic, speed and traditional heavy metal, as well as Bossa Nova, MPB, and a somewhat Samba start to The Shadow Hunter.

Unlike any other Angra album, although I haven't yet heard Aurora Consurgeons (It'll be my first acquisition when I go back to Sao Paulo in two weeks), and Edu's voice finally moves away from a technical Andre Matos voice, to a harmonious and melodic voice. A voice which has personality.

Indeed a must have, if you like 'cultural' metal. It definitely brings out the best of Brazil's music, especially with Felipe Matos on the bass, Aquiles Priester on the drums, and Rafael Bittencourt and Kiko Loureiro on the guitars, although I will always be biased when talking about Angra, as they were the ones that got me into metal in the first place (thanks to Acid Rain (Rebirth)). Since I discovered them, I went to all but 3 of their concerts in Sao Paulo. The last was gifted with Kai Hansen playing Temple of Hate. Simply amazing!
