4 stars Angra's latest effort, Aurora Consurgens, is a very direct and cohesive album, which leads the band to a more "prog metal" side of it's carreer, a fact that can dissapoint some of their fans. After the masterpiece "Temple of Shadows", Angra decided not to record another concept album, and built up an album not conceptual, but rounding around mental problems and psychological stuff. The music here is the most direct and dark music Angra ever made. You'll find a little amount of the power metal the band used to do, and will find more Dream Theater-like progressive metal, powerfully balanced with a very cohesive heavy metal.

Well, I am a strong fan of what the band made 'till now and really like they style, but, one thing i really dislike in heavy metal bands is the lack of innovation, bands that stands still in a formula and record albuns and albuns over it. I really appreciate the iniciative and the courage of the band of trying to inovate their own sounding and style without losing their own identity.

Not a masterpiece, but an excelent album, with a noble attitude of the band. An excelent addition to any prog music collection!
