Saddle your ears as Brazilian progressive power metal legends ANGRA “Ride Into The Storm” today! After unveiling details and preorders for new album Cycles Of Pain, set for release on November 3rd via Atomic Fire Records, the band finally presents the first digital single off the record. “Ride Into The Storm” has also been captured visually by a team led by Leo Liberti (libertafilmes.com.br).
The band comments: “‘Ride Into The Storm’ is a relentless and aggressive piece that captures the essence of ANGRA‘s style. With its fast-paced tempo and modern flair, the song retains the band’s distinct DNA while delivering intricate and technically challenging passages; the fusion of traditional and progressive elements pushes the boundaries without sacrificing the band’s signature style. ‘Ride Into The Storm’ is one more step in ANGRA‘s evolution, embodying aggression, speed, modernity, and ability in one cohesive and engaging package. The lyrics take us on a powerful and transformative journey, portraying the duality within us as we face both challenges and opportunities. Amidst division and adversity, we find the strength to evolve and grow. Guided by hope and a thirst for truth, we embark on a new crusade, united as warriors of change. With unwavering determination, we fearlessly confront the chaos, embracing transformation and forging our own destiny. The storm becomes our ally, propelling us forward as we ride towards a brighter future.”

ANGRA’s metal leadership began over thirty years ago in 1991. Hailing since then as one of the finest metal acts originating from South America, the last decade saw the addition of vocalist Fabio Lione (Athena XIX, ex-Rhapsody Of Fire, ex-Vision Divine etc.) to their ranks. With Rafael Bittencourt and Marcelo Barbosa on guitars, Felipe Andreoli on bass, and Bruno Valverde on drums, ANGRA has been keeping the momentum and now they are ready to release their long-awaited tenth studio album through their new label partner, Atomic Fire Records.
