Slovakian metal band Signum Regis checked in with the following:

Here’s our Christmas gift for you. It is also a humble tribute to the amazing André Matos, who left us recently. We want to thank all of you for the fantastic support you’ve been giving us. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

André Coelho Matos was a Brazilian vocalist, producer, pianist and composer. He was involved in the heavy metal bands Viper, Angra, Shaman and Symfonia and sold million of copies worldwide. Since October 2006, Matos had been dedicating his time to his solo career. In 2012, he was ranked #77 at the list of 100 Greatest Voices of Brazilian Music by Rolling Stone Brasil. André Matos passed away on June 8th after suffereing a heart attack at the age of 47.

Signum Regis have released their new album “The Seal Of A New World” on Nov 22nd 2019 worldwide through Beyond The Storm Productions. It’s the first album with the new singer Jota Fortinho. Check out the music video for ‘Fly Away’ below.

There are 12 new tracks on the album. Among those 12 songs, there are all sonic trademarks of the band. Fans can enjoy fast, melodic, heavy, mid tempo, rocking songs and also an epic ballad.

The album was mixed by Ronnie König and mastered by the famous Jacob Hansen. One of the interesting aspects of the production is, that there are no triggers and drum samples on drums. The sound is 100% acoustic, which is quite rare for a band of this genre and therefore, it helps this album to stand out of the crowd.

Backing vocals on the album were done by David Åkesson. You can also hear 2 solos from Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Allen/Lande, Kiske/Somerville) and a guest appearance by Eli Prinsen (The Sacrificed, Sacred Warrior).
