    I didn't think Fabio fitted when watching videos, but after seeing him live I think he's great! Shame Ricardo left, what's that all about?!

    v Hardly. Angra's early albums are musically good but not as good as subsequent releases and even though Andre Matos is a good singer the dude's voice is way too shrill and tend to be annoying at times. Best era of angra is Rebirth + Temple of shadows.
