Brazilian vocalist, pianist and composer Andre Matos died on June 8th following a heart attack. Having become an international name through his time fronting Angra, Matos was also associated with Viper, Shaaman, Symfonia and Avantasia. Since 2006, Matos had been dedicating his time primarily to his solo band.
“We all had a metal/hard rock/prog backgrounds, but we felt that our playing style was changing towards a more direct and concise approach,” says Lucio Grilli. “And our way to conceive the songs was influenced as well. In addition to that, we were also looking for something more suitable for Aurelio’s powerful voice, something closer to rock/metal to fully let his voice be heard. It’s more natural for us to talk about MK simply as a melodic metal band than a prog metal one.”
Swedish symphonic power metal band Majestica recently signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast and will release their debut album “Above The Sky”, on June 7, 2019. Now the band has revealed the album’s tracklist as well as the cover artwork. And as if that wasn’t enough, the group has also presented the first single, “Rising Tide”, from their new offering.
