ANGRA Posts “Stand Away” Clip From “Angel’s Cry: 20th Anniversary Tour” DVDFriday, 15th November 2013
Brazilian power metal heroes ANGRA have posted a performance clip of “Stand Away,” featuring former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen from their Angel’s Cry: 20th Anniversary Tour DVD. The clip can be viewed below.
As a means of celebrating its successful trajectory, the band took the opportunity to schedule a small tour through Brazil and Latin America, which culminated with the show in São Paulo, after 11 dates. If there was any aura of uncertainty towards the future, ANGRA shook it off for good with a very special concert, truly a night to remember. As guitar player Rafael Bittencourt put it, “For those who think we should quit, I tell you: we’re just getting started”. That pretty much summons up the very apparent joy that the band showed onstage, not only that night, but on the whole tour.
A stellar team of guests made everything even more special. Tarja Turunen, formerly of NIGHTWISH, lends her talent and angelic voice on two songs: “Stand Away” and Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights”. On the latter, the legendary Uli Jon Roth (SCORPIONS) is also featured, and shows why he is such a reference for the majority of guitar players around the world. The Brazilian string quartet FAMILIA LIMA appears in three songs, and drummer Amilcar Christopharo, from the band TORTURE SQUAD, grabs the sticks on “Evil Warning”, representing the metal bands from Brazil.
Angels Cry 20th Anniversary Tourwill be released as a separate DVD and a double CD, containing over 20 tracks in total and extra behind-the-scenes footage captured during the latest tour.
