Prior to the release of ANGRA’s brand new album Ømni (Feb 16/SPV), the official video for “War Horns” has been unleashed. Check it out below:
SPV was established in 1984 and is one of the largest independent record companies in the world. With distribution all over the world, SPV has an unparalleled reputation for audio quality, archive research and visual presentation. Steamhammer, Synthetic Symphony, Oblivion and Red hold a massive back catalogue from artists like Motörhead, Saxon, Kreator, Kamelot, Iced Earth, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Type O Negative, Dio, The Mission, Fields Of The Nephilim, Bad English, Suicidal Tendencies, Prong and many others.
Like the mythical Goddess of Fire from which they take their name, Angra is a band that balances grace and beauty with devastating power. Burning with passionate aggression but also elegant craftsmanship, Angra’s classically influenced songs combine heaviness with melodic accessibility, comparable at times to Dream Theater and/or Fates Warning. As evidenced by the success of the band’s 1993 debut, Angels Cry, and the 1996 follow-up, Holy Land (as well as three EPs; 1994’s Evil Warning, ’96’s Freedom Call and Holy Live from 1997) fans of progressive power metal all over the world have been enlightened by Angra, and are anxiously awaiting to hear more from the five-piece from Brazil.
