Brazilian melodic metallers ANGRA celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of their 1993 debut album, "Angels Cry", with a special concert on August 25 at HSBC Brasil in São Paulo, Brazil…
Angels Cry is the debut album of Brazilian metal band Angra. It was released in 1993 and recorded in Germany at Kai Hansen's studios in Hamburg.Despite being featured in the inlays and photo shoots for the album, drummer Ricardo Confessori did not play on the album as he was not a member of the band at the time of recording, with the majority of drum duties handled by Alex Holzwarth, while Thomas Nack (at the time a Gamma Ray member) played on "Wuthering Heights".The first Angra drummer Marco Antunes appears on the back sleeve & inlays of the Japanese first press of Angels Cry in place of Ricardo Confessori but is not featured on the album either.
Secret Garden is the eighth and next full-length studio album by Brazilian progressive/power metal band Angra, to be released on 17 December 2014 in Japan and in January 2015 in Brazil and Europe. The album was produced and recorded in Sweden by Jens Bogren, with pre-production by Roy Z, and will be the band's first work with drummer Bruno Valverde, as well as the first studio effort with vocalist Fabio Lione. The album will also feature vocals by guitarist Rafael Bittencourt and some guest performances by Dutch singer Simone Simons (Epica) and German singer Doro Pesch.

This 20 year career spanning album was compiled by the band and will be available as a double CD .

No pop genre has defined what a summer night can be as much as doo wop, with its countless songs about the moon and the stars and the light they cast on the possibilities of romance, and no pop genre has ever had more earthly angels residing per square foot. This 6 volume, 24 disc, 600-song collection of doo wop vocal groups has numerous examples of both, along with seemingly a song for every girl's name ever invented.
