Just before going up on stage for the "Dia Mundial Do Rock", Edu granted an interview to Whiplah (brazilian metal website). He commented the recording of the second Almah's album and new Angra prospects. The new album recording must be finished next week. Releasing is scheduled for september.
How is going the recording of the new Almah's album ?
Edu : "Almah turn now as a real band more than a solo project. I have invited this time Brazilians to join the band. The idea is to give continuity of work studio to the stage with the same musicians. The work is setting very well with humble and very gifted people. Its a perfect way to make a success of a good work. It will be one of the best albums that I have recorded in my carrer,maybe the best one.
Which is the diffence between the new album and the fist Almah's album ? Edu : The main difference is in fisrt that all the musicians took part in the compositions. The Album has is own style. It's more uniform. The first album was more experimental. Musics are in the Almah style, there is a continuity with the new album, but at the same time they are more successfully completed. The new album 's coating is better.
In the new album there is a contribution of Felipe Andreoli, which is an Angra's member. Which is prints an Angra identity to the new Almah's album ?
Edu : there is an Angra 's influence because I'm the Angra's singer and Felipe the Angra's bass player. But we're searching for the band is own sound, because we wishes to make carrer. Musicians are very good and have their own way of playing, which is contributed to the project.
When will release the new album ?
Edu : CD should be release at the end of september, in Japan, Europe, Brazil and United States. The idea is to keep in work, to move on a tour and albums. We must make our first world tour soon. we appoint it for 2009. We don't have any dates yet, but it's under consideration.
If Almah become a band and either a solo project, what about Angra ? Edu : Actualy Angra is making a break and is seeing to legals issue (...), beeing in peace and quiet. We wait the good time to back in force. Obviously some changes will occur in the band due to all the problems. The most important is that Angra comes back solid and strong to give joyfulness to people and fans.Its our greatest wish.
Do the changes impact the administrative part or the lining-up ?
Edu : I can not anticipate yet what will be decided, but changes will relate artistic and administrative parts.
