As anyone who follows metal knows, Brazil has produced some great bands and has an active metal scene.  After an extended hiatus since 2012, Prelúdio X from Recife, Brazil have released Triunfo da Vida which is actually re-recorded tracks from a 2009 project Origem with their new lineup.

I do question by bands feel the need for intro tracks that are not full on band instrumentals, especially on an ep, but  Triunfo Da Vida opens up with Gênesis, a moody atmospheric keyboard piece that has some waves crashing or thunder in the background.  The full band portion of the ep starts with “Origem” and from the opening riff and keyboards establishes this as being within power metal.  From a production standpoint, everything is clear but the Portuguese vocals a bit muted.  Within power metal, guitars and vocals are really the components of the sound that stand out and in this case, the guitars are more prominent due to the quieter mix on the vocals.  Musically, “Origem” has a nice flow as one would expect in a power metal song and there are some brief guitar flourishes that add interesting elements,  but they do seem a bit abrupt and short.

The Brazilian Thrash/Groove metal band band Legacy Of Kain is in the process of recording “Paralelo XI”, album that will succeed the praised debut “I.N.V.E.R.S.O.” (2017) and invited Fernanda Lira from the band Nervosa to make a guest vocal participation.

On February 25 Karim Serri, guitarist and the producer from Legacy Of Kain went to the city of São Paulo and accompanied Fernanda‘s recordings at Sputnik Home Studio with the assistance of Michel Oliveira. According to the musician “Fernanda is extremely talented. We needed a voice with presence and melodic dynamism for a cover song that we wanted to record and our press manager gave us the idea to call her. When we make the conversations, they flowed well and she liked a lot the idea that we ended up planning to participate in a song of their own too, this time making use of their characteristic vociferations (laughs). “ Continue reading »
