Test Your Metal Records
Release: 23 September 2016
Almah is an adult contemporary metal band from Brazil. The sound goes from fast rockers to uptempo tracks and midtempo songs and also ballads. There is quite bit of variety, but melody and big choruses is a main characteristic of the band's style and this, their fifth studio album.
OFFICIAL: Brazilian metallers ALMAH led by ex-Angra singer Edu Falaschi are proud to announce they will be releasing their new album entitled 'E.V.O' on September 23rd worldwide via Pride & Joy Music (EU), Test Your Metal (US/MX/CA) and King Records (Japan).
'E.V.O' is the 5th studio album from ALMAH and was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil at IMF studios by Tito Falaschi plus mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud (Fear Factory, Dragonforce, Baby Metal, etc) at Mix Unlimited in Los Angeles, California. The release is a concept album based on the evolution of people’s mind and soul during the so-called AGE OF AQUARIUS - the new era that the world is about to live. The author of the concept, Edu Falaschi, touches different subjects connected to the main idea, creating very positive lyrics for the album’s atmosphere.
Musically 'E.V.O' brings a fresh and powerful sound with the typical modern and heavy ALMAH touch, but this time one will be able to realize that it also has a direct connection with the Angra’s “Rebirth” (the first Angra album with Edu Falaschi's voice). The compositions are a pleasant travel between contemporary rock, modern power and prog metal. The vocal lines on 'E.V.O' are very powerful, classic and the vocals have a higher pitch compared to previous ALMAH’s records. It’s very melodic, clean and into the bel canto style.
