{mosimage}André Matos, ex vocalist of Angra, introduce us his first solo album. 

B

razilian singer Andre Matos has undoubtedly one of the most privileged voices in the international heavy metal scene. Due to him was the great success around the world of his previous band, Angra, and the marvelous albums Holy Land and Angels Cry.Seems by the title that Matos was missing more freedom for creating the music he really wants, so nothing better like making his first solo album to show the world that he has reached the maturity as musician to take care of a whole project.

Together with him, the Mariutti brothers (ex members of Shaman where Matos also belonged) and produced by the legendary Roy Z and Sascha Paeth. We are talking about big names in the metal scene here, so that can give an idea of the ambition poured into this project. A great piano intro in Menuett that leads to a varied amount of great metal songs: from the exuberance of Rio to the balanced calm in Face the End, every song matches perfectly in a puzzle that finally gets transformed in a little piece of art of the heavy metal genre.

If you liked previous Matos ´work, surely you are going to love Time to Be Free.

Rate 4/5.
