Oh no! The world may end now!
Singer Eduardo “Edu” Falaschi has bailed on Brazilian metal band Angra.
“There comes a moment in a man’s life when it is necessary to make a radical decision in order to move forward with dignity and renewed energy,” says Edu in a statement.
“I’m in a very happy moment, where now, at age 40, I’m fulfilled and incredibly satisfied to have succeeded in making almost all my personal and professional dreams come true,” he says.
“I have a beautiful family, many wonderful friends and fans who have followed me for over 20 years and a lasting career with more than 15 albums released, several world tours and thousands of copies sold worldwide.
“I am a lucky person to have made it this far, singing heavy metal and been around the planet playing the music I love the most,” he adds. “I’ve been thinking for some time now about the path to follow and finally came to the conclusion that it is time to take the more natural road.
“It is with a mixture of relief, joy and sadness that I have to declare that from today on I am not the voice of Angra anymore. I’m leaving the band already missing a lot of what we built together, especially the happy times of Rebirth and Temple Of Shadows. I will never forget everything that we experienced from good to bad times, after all we must always look at the good side of things, even when things are most difficult.”
Edu says he has “many plans and projects for the future! Some of them are already well-established, strong and generating excellent results and so, they demand and deserve my full dedication, and of all the people involved in it. That’s why I also want to announce that Felipe Andreoli is not Almah’s bass player anymore! He will keep working only with Angra and his other projects!”
