|Love for classical music
A lot of power metal fans know the name Andre Matos for around 20 years. Of course, you can easily recognize this voice, well-known by bands Viper, Angra, Shaman (Shaaman), metal opera Avantasia, project Virgo… Now we can put in this row one more album from this talented musician – solo effort “Time to Be Free”.
Ok, the album starts with beautiful intro “Menuett”. If you’ve ever heard other albums of Andre, you could notice that he always liked classical music (and we will hear it more on this new album). And then you hear music that probably you waited to hear from Andre Matos.
I’ve been always surprised by boldness of Andre, who did such song, arranged such music and put lyrics. But he continues his experiments. Love for classical music, you know, such stuff… If you have it, even Beethoven will be just a work material for own ideas.
Thanks to CD-Maximum for the CD
