Edu Falaschi about Almah in Universo Do Rock interview

Edu Falaschi talks about Almah in a recent interview for Universo Do Rock website :

Universo do Rock : - You have another band Almah, how are you going to manage both things now, when Angra is back for 100 per cent?

Edu Falaschi : It's clear that now Angra is a priority, but if some opportunity for Almah appears, we will use it. We played in Belo Horizonte and Brasilia this year. When Angra was back, I talked about it with the guys, explaining that we had to take a break and they understood. Moreover, we have already done a lot of things, so it's time to stop for a while and to compose songs for the new album. I'm going to perform with Angra, but I'm already writing new songs for the new Almah.

Universo do Rock : - And how much time will it take to launch the CD?

Edu Falaschi : I don't know yet. We are collecting ideas, we are composing, and then we'll decide when the right moment comes.

Felipe Andreoli tells about Almah

Dear friends! We have a direct message from Felipe Andreoli to you. The bassist tells about Almah and the current moment of his career in general. Please, check it out and stay tuned! Thanks a lot for all the support!

“Hi there, folks! It's been a busy year so far! Now it's time to release 'Aqua' and hit the road again. But that doesn't mean that we'll forget you, Almah fans. We've been working on compositions and ideas all this time, and we're pretty excited about many of them. We were also able to do some shows in Brazil. which was cool not only to be on the road, but also because we really miss each other in this band. Maybe we'll have some other dates coming this second semester, too.

Apart form that I'm again doing some shows with Kiko Loureiro in his solo project, and I'm always playing with Rafael Bittencourt in his solo project as well. There are also two instrumental projects I'm playing with lately, one with Brazilian guitarist Silas Fernandes and other called 'Tao Caos & Cronus', with drummer Renato Bon. Last but not least, a totally remodeled will be available in a very near future, courtesy of designer Gustavo Sazes. Cheers!»

Felipe Andreoli.

Still Alive / Edu Falaschi / Marcelo Moreira : drum sessions part 1

Here is a video of Edu Falaschi and Marcelo Moreira (Almah) talking about the drum sessions of Still Alive debut album. New Still Alive album, produced by Edu Falaschi and featured Marcelo Moreira, is expected to be launched in the second half of this year in Brazil.

Here are Edu Falaschi and Marcelo Moreira comments :

Edu Falaschi : "Hey guys, what'sup ? I'm Edu Falaschi. I'm at Norcal Studios, producing the band Still Alive. We're at the beginning of the production, recording the drums. We have Marcelo Moreira as special guest on the album. We're at the beginning of the production, although we're finishing the drum recording. Moreira is very fast. He recorded yesterday and today he must finish the 9 songs with drums. Next week I will start another production and soon we'll produce the guitars of Still Alive. In this case, the songs were almost ready. They were very well produced. We spend a lot of months working together in the songs. And now It's just record. We have a good team here, with Brendan (Duffey) and Adriana Daga, here at Norcal. They're both producers and great technicians, and I believe this studio is the best to record rock and heavy metal. That's why we're here, the same studio that Angra's new album is being recorded, where Almah's latest album were recorded, Kiko Loureiro's among others. Well, the album is being done with much effort. We hope to finish it before latin America's Expomusic. And I believe that in this event you will have the pleasure to listen this new Brazilian band, called Still Alive. Soon we'll have more news. And that's all."

Marcelo Moreira : "Hey guys. I'm recording Still Alive's album, at Norcal Studio in São Paulo, the same studio that I recorded Almah's album. It's being very nice, because it's a very different sound that what I usually play. There are a lot of heavy metal elements, but, there are some different things, from what I am used to play. So it's being very nice to try out some new stuff. I'm using my cymbals Orion Kit, that is working very well at studio and I believe that the album will have a great sound. The drums are very good and I think that this will be a great heay metal album, with these guys from Rio De Janiero. I hope that they have a brillant future ahead. I will always watching and helping in what I can. And that's all guys !"
