Staff review by

Nicely surprised by Angra's debut album, 1994's "Angels Cry", no one was yet prepared for what was to come with this follow-up release. Originating from Sao Paulo, Brazil the Heavy/Power Metal band that plays a savvy blend of classic Metal and progressive folk elements really set the bar very high with 1996's "Holy Land".

Rating: 9 After this Angra really started to get good. Awesome album, has some power metal at it's purest forms (Z.I.T.O.) but does not forget occasional slowdowns (Silence and Distance). Not bad at all.

Rating: 9 I think what makes this album so unique is it's atmosphere and sound all the way through. The Brazilian twist on songs such as 'Nothing to say' and the monumental 'Carolina IV' make for astounding compositions, and even when the band slow down to let the listener breathe for a few minutes, songs such as the beautiful 'Deep blue' show the band can work well with songs of all tempos.
