Cycles Of Pain Full-Length Nears Release Via Atomic Fire Records

Brazilian progressive power metal icons ANGRA are only a few weeks from releasing their brand-new album Cycles Of Pain, set to drop on November 3rd via Atomic Fire Records. In advance of the record's official release, today the band reveals their third single, "Gods Of The World", and an accompanying video, crafted again by a creative team led by Leo Liberti (libertafilmes.com.br).

ANGRA guitarist Rafael Bittencourt elaborates, "This video is a reflection about who we are really following as leaders and who we are unconsciously worshipping with our acts. People might believe that they worship God and follow specific values, but in reality, they have other priorities such as work, social position, food, social media, pleasure etc. Our highest values play a very small part in the way we behave. Most of us in contemporary society are addicted to being connected to the internet, networks, and social media -- an illness that has become normal. It all starts with the fact that most of our work and survival depends on it and ends on the sense of emptiness and anxiety when our phones are off. That makes us all very passive to the influence of all sorts of truths being bombarded simultaneously through what we follow. While our brains are numb and receptive, we're commanded by external, also contradictory references. So, the gods that rule the world nowadays are the chaos within our own habits, and we're confused searching for vain experiences to fulfill our lonely and empty souls."

Watch ANGRA's "Gods Of The World" video on KNAC.COM HERE.

Cycles Of Pain was produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by long-time ANGRA partner Dennis Ward (D.C. Cooper, Pink Cream 69, Place Vendome) at the Sonasterio & Elephant Office in Brazil, while mixing and mastering took place at The TrakShak in Karlsdorf, Germany. Its artwork was designed by Erick Pasqua before Jonathan Canuto took care of layout duties. The album also features a range of guests including appearances by Amanda Somerville ("Tears Of Blood"), Brazilian artists Lenine ("Vida Seca") and Vanessa Moreno ("Tide Of Changes - Part II", "Here In The Now"), and Juliana D'Agostini on piano ("Tears Of Blood").

Cycles Of Pain will be available in the following formats: digipak CD, jewel case CD, vinyl in various color variants (Red/Yellow Split, Clear/Blue Marbled, Clear Yellow/White Splatter), and digitally.

Preorder the album in the physical format of your choice, presave it on your favorite DSP or preorder it digitally to receive "Gods Of The World", "Tide Of Changes - Part II", and "Ride Into The Storm" instantly now at angra.afr.link/cyclesofpainPR.

Subscribe to Atomic Fire Records on YouTube and listen to "Gods Of The World" as well as other new tracks in the AFR New Releases playlist on Spotify.

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) 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.
