    Tinha parado de ouvir Angra faz tempo, sou fã do álbum Angels Cry e Holy Land, e achei legal o Rebirth, mas esse novo tá muito foda... esse Fabio Lione canta pra caralho, faz um trampo enjoativo no Rhapsody, mas caiu como uma luva no Angra...

    Rafael me surpreendeu nesse cd. As minhas faixas preferidas são as que ele canta.

    Posso estar errado, mas quem ja ouvia Doom Metal, tragou esse album muito mais facilmente, realmente uma bela obra.
