ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Technical riffage, super speedy playing, soaring vocals, and progressive song structure permeate this amazing 9 song CD. Seven Angels hails from Brazil and serves up a tasty feast of melodic power metal that approaches speed and thrash at times, featuring soaring female vocals and the occasional harsh male vocal along with progressive tendencies for a unique sound that is as fresh as it is furious. Faceless Man is the follow up to their very successful debut The Second Floor, but it eclipses it in every way, with pristine production, better song writing, and more technical musicianship. Fans of power, speed, thrash, or bands like Sonata Arctica and Sinergy should take note, as you will not be disappointed.

WOW!
This album surprised me big time. This reminds me of a mix of Helloween, Metallica, with the vocals of Saraya. I will definitely buy other albums from this band.

Power/Progressive Metal
Seven Angels came out of Brazil in 2002 with the blend of power and progressive metal found on its full length debut "The Second Floor". Moving in the same musical direction on its 2006 sophomore release "Faceless Man", Seven Angels mixes in an occasional thrash and speed element to put together a much more well rounded effort that does a better job of holding up under repeated play. Of course, a measure of the bands improvement can be traced directly to the steps and strides made by lead vocalist Debora Serri. "Faceless Man" finds Debora putting forth a stronger effort that, when compared to "The Second Floor", comes across in the more controlled and confident sounding manner. And while there is still room for improvement here and she still exhibits some shaky and unsettled moments (such as on “Beyond The Dark Side Of The Moon”), I can honestly say that her abilities now enhance and no longer detract from the bands sound. It does not hurt, at the same time, that the band chose to complement Debora – and help round out the project in the process – with guest appearances by several male lead vocalists who bring styles ranging from extreme (“Walking Over All The Seas”) to the clean (“Unseen Truth”). Guitarist Karim Serri continues to impress, his playing best showcased throughout the numerous lengthy instrumental passages adorning the project from front to back. Drummer Eliezer Leite is a terrific talent who puts in nothing less than a tight as a nail performance. Finally, it is worth pointing out that since the release of The Second Floor both bassist Ricardo Bagatelli and keyboardist Rafel Friesen departed the group only to be replaced by Regis Lafayette and Gustavo Martins.

Great cd !!
I just got this cd about a week ago, and it happens to be the best album I've heard from last year. Yeah last year had it's share of good albums by none really can touch this one, I mean nobody that I know of is familar with this band. What a shame because I believe fans of Sinergy would probably love this band to death. They are really in the same league only that Seven Angels aren't as fast but pretty close.

The cd starts off with "Handful Of Sand" which is pretty basic speed metal for the most part, but the one thing that sticks out is the solo. This band really knows how to write a great solo. Debora has great voice but she doesn't have the range of Kimberly Goss, they are quite different in approach but Debora can sing just fine. "Beyond The Dark Side of The Moon" is a Pink Floyd tribute, well not really but it would be funny. This song has real catchy riffs, well layered guitar tone with pretty unique chorus. I mean the chorus kinda glides along but it sounds very good.

It's one the best songs on the album. This band does have Christian themes but that doesn't bother me at all, but if spiritual messages isn't your thing you need to avoid this. The title track is another highlight, it's about someone who has lost their identity as a human being and asking God who they are. And who God wants them to be, Debora vocals shine here and really carries the song . "Nobody Wants To Live Alone" is ballad like number, the song is about the lonely people and what it feels like being alone. It's a standard message but it really comes through with the lyrics, very well written.

"From Now To Eternity" is amazing closer, it's probably my favorite song on the album. It's contains the best solo on the album, This is also probably Debora's best vocal performance. It's always important to finish an album strong and Seven Angels do save their best for last. Like I mentioned this is overlooked band that many people would probably enjoy them if they would give them a chance. I haven't heard this band's debut but it's defiantley on my want list. So if your looking for a sleeper from last year here it is!

When I was approached by Seven Angels I had never heard of them, but now I've had their sophomore album for a good week, and must say I am highly impressed with this album. Seven Angels hails from Brazil.

Seven Angels is basically a power metal band with a female vocalist, but they are never limited within the boundaries of power metal. And their influences range from melodic metal, thru thrash and progressive metal.

This is in your face fast and furious power metal with a strong focus on a very strong guitar section, which is what impresses me the most on this cool album. The duo of Karím Serri and Régis Lafayette delivers one stunning riff after another throughout the album, and the leads are all excellent.

The rhythm section of Eliézer Leite on the drums and Gustavo Martins on the bass makes an equally impressive impression, which brings me to my main objection to this album - the vocals from Debora Serri. Not that she is an awful singer; I do just feel some of her vocals could have been better. I do feel she too often is holding back and I wish she would let it rip and scream her lungs out, because she does have the ability and range to bring this album up the next level...

If you are into power metal with female vocals, then there's no way around this album. I know I am a sucker for this kind of metal. However that is not why I do recommend this album to all power metal fans, it's because this is an album packed with great and powerful metal songs and the guitar work alone makes this album great and worth checking out.

Check out their very professional website for more info, you can buy the disc directly there and from various well assorted record stores around the World.
