“Trace Of Trait”, the new video from the Brazilian progressive power metal band ALMAH — the side project of ANGRA members Edu Falaschi (vocals) and Felipe Andreoli (bass) — can be seen below. The clip was filmed in Caxias do Sul, a city in the south of Brazil, at the end of August under the direction of producer and photographer Alex Milesi.
Commented Falaschi: “We had an idea to prepare something special for our fans, [and] that’s why we decided to release not simply some audio single but a full-fledged video clip! We have chosen ‘Trace Of Trait’ for the first presentation of [the third ALMAH album] ‘Motion’ because this song is very strong in many ways… and I’m totally sure that it represents well the language and identity of ALMAH! We worked with this director, Alex Milesi, for the first time. He is a very nice man and he had various good ideas for us. Everything during the shooting went on very well and we are very happy with the result.”
“Motion” will be released on the following dates:
Europe (via AFM Records): October 14
Brazil (Laser Company): September 16
Rest Of Latin America (Icarus Records): October 14
Japan (Victor JVC): October 19
The CD was recorded in May-June 2011 at Norcal Studios in São Paulo, Brazil and was mixed and mastered in July at Split Second Sound Studios in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Jochem Jacobs (TEXTURES). A brand new digital single will be made available online in the beginning of September.
Commented Falaschi: “I’m very excited to present our new work soon. We are absolutely dedicated. Each bandmember contributed to the basic parts, arrangements and songwriting. I’m really proud that this album will show the real language and personality of ALMAH! ‘Motion’ is heavy, modern and up-to-date (maybe, the heaviest stuff I’ve ever recorded in my life). It’s powerful! Full of good energy! The instrumental parts are very solid and heavy. The vocal lines present my natural range and style, heavy and aggressive. It’s a kind of album to bang your head non-stop! And I have a feeling that in the end it will be the best CD in my whole discography. At least the one I like the most…”
ALMAH‘s sophomore album, “Fragile Equality”, was released in October 2008 via AFM Records.
