4 stars It's a great hard progr.brasilian albun, with strong vocals and very good musicians, the band was led by amyr cantusio jr around 1995. The initial idea was to form something heavier in the line of Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, in parallel with the ALPHA III project. There were 2 years of rehearsals, concerts and the release of the first independent CD. by the record label Musea /France. Amyr left the band for personal reasons and financial problems, heading more to ALPHA III. After a year, Amyr returned to form a similar band with ex-members of the progressive metal band called Saint-Brandan(Campinas SP) With a line one a little more worked with keyboards, more pompous vocals and a digital recording, he recorded 5 songs, of which he composed only 2 and arranged the other 3 tracks of this group. Saint Brandan was very similar to Acron and later, in independent CDS, the 5 tracks were added as a bonus.Of course are long tracks with up-time drums like Rush or Uriah Heep old school.

The track names: Ligeya(Amyr)/ Saint Brandan(Marcel/Khüll)/ The Vortex(Amyr/Marcel/Khüll)/ Legends of Steel(Marcel/Khüll) Time to Love (Amyr)

Some tracks (less Ligeya) Amyr plays all drums/lead vocals and synthesizers.

The band was formed by: AMYR CANTUSIO JR: lead vocal/drums/synthesizers/some lyric parts MARCEL: lead guitars RICHARD KHÜLL-bass guitar/back vocal RUDOLPH KHÜLL- keyboards and harmonica ROBSON GONÇALVES: Live Drums and special drums on Ligeya .

Unfortunately Saint Brandan could not survive more than a year, and record a CD. A divergence in the group shook the foundations and again Amyr returned to ALPHA III.
