AGE OF ARTEMIS - The Waking Hour
POWER PROG is proud to present "The Waking Hour", the second album of Brazilian Melodic Power/Prog Metallers AGE OF ARTEMIS. After our first cooperation with the release of their debut album "Overcoming Limits" in January 2013, POWER PROG has accompanied the band through the entire development flow of this new masterpiece and is now looking forward to bring this stunning work to the world as CD and digital download.
Brazilian Metal band AGE OF ARTEMIS was formed in 2009 from the idealization of drummer Pedro Senna and by involving prominent members such as Alirio Netto (Vocals), Nathan Grego (Guitar), Gabriel Soto (Guitar) and Giovanni Sena (Bass), all already known sizes in the Brazilian Metal scene. Technique and musicality allied to different influences exerted on each and including elements of Progressive and Power Metal were their specifications.
With Edu Falaschi (Angra/Almah) they found the appropriate producer to implement their ideas into reality. The result was the outstanding debut album „Overcoming Limits“, that receives extraordinary reviews until today and is considered as a landmark of Brazilian Metal in the recent decade. Released in Brazil in 2011 via MS Metal Records and 2012 in Japan through King Records, POWER PROG cared about the CD distribution in Europe and North America and a proper and worldwide digital publishing of the album in early 2013. Decisive steps were done ...
Now we are talking about their second strike ...
"The Waking Hour" is an exceptional piece of Metal and much more ... individual, unique and trend-setting for one of the most respected South American bands nowadays. Superb melodies alternate with instrumental refinements, power meets progressive, technical skills are detached from emotional moments and elements of Brazilian folk music refine the whole thing to a musical enjoyment which will not only inspire Metal fans. The protagonists are beyond reproach and deliver a firework of styles and cross-genre excursions ... Without losing their straight Metal roots and the necessary toughness! "The Waking Hour" has already now a secure place on the leaderboards of the year, perhaps even in the current decade. This is an album that many genre greats would like to have made ... Now it's up to AGE OF ARTEMIS to receive these entitled laurels!
"The Waking Hour" will be released in Brazil by MS Metal Records, in Japan via King Records and in all other parts of the world and as digital download through POWER PROG
