Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Today we continue our Power Metal Mania series with the eighth studio album by Brazillian metallers, Angra called “Secret Garden”.

This is the first album with their new singer, Rhapsody of Fire’s Fabio Lione and new drummer Bruno Valverde. Guitarist Rafael Bittencourt handles some of the vocal duties on this album and the album also includes guest appearances by Simone Simmons from Epica and Doro Pesch.

This is one of my favorite albums by Angra and while the whole album stands out to me, some of my favorite tracks include: Newborn Me, Black Hearted Soul, Final Light and Storm of Emotions. They also do a cover of The Police’s Synchronicity II song which Fabio and Rafael trade vocals on the song.

While Angra did an extensive tour of this album, founding member and guitarist Kiko Loureiro left the band after the tour to join Megadeth and was replaced with Brazilian guitarist Marcelo Barbosa.

Check out the videos below for “Final Light”, “Black Hearted Soul” and “Synchronicity II”:
