Shaaman (previously named Shaman) is a Brazilian power metal band created when Andre Matos (vocal), Luís Mariutti (bass) and Ricardo Confessori (drums) split from Angra. Hugo Mariutti (guitar) was called just to help on the compositions, but the result was so positive that he joined the band definitely. Since 2002, Shaaman released two studio albums: Ritual and Reason, and a live CD/DVD called Ritualive.
Shaaman split up in October 2006 due to personal and musical differences.
Following the break up, the drummer, Ricardo Confessori decided to reform the band under the name "Shaman" with guitarist Leo Mancini, vocalist Thiago Bianchi and bassist Fernando Quesada. Their new album is to be named "Immortal" and is due to be released in 2007.
