is back, possibly better the ever. "Rebirth" is a fitting
title since three of the five members left the band. They sound quite
a bit like Dream Theater these days, with maybe a touch of a Stratovarius
or Blind Guardian sound. The new singer is named Edu Falaschi, he
was one of the hottest contenders for the vacant spot in Iron Maiden
after Bruce Dickinson left them. This proves that he is a great singer
and fits in well with the styles of Angra. There are two songs on
this disk that I think are excellent and they are "Nova Era"
and "Heros Of Sand." A few others that I thought that were
striking include "Acid Rain" and "Unholy Wars, Parts
One and Two," and "Running Alone." There were some
good parts in other songs as well, but they didn't pull them together
as well. The ten tracks last for almost fifty-three minutes of progressive
power metal. "Rebirth" was a nice surprise to me, after
what happened a few years ago.
