Greensleeves biography
GREENSLEEVES was founded in 1993, when guitarists Victor Schmidlin (then also lead singer) and Cicero Baggio, bassist Joao Koerner and drummer Giulliano Settim recorded the band's first demo tape in Curitiba, Brazil.

In 1994, Jim Marc Douglas joined as lead singer and in 1995, the band released the demo "Immortal", recorded at Drum Studios, in Rio de Janeiro. Following the release, the band performed in Curitiba and other cities in the state of Parana, Brazil.

In 1997, Gui Nogueira replaces Douglas as lead singer, and Luis Requiao (ex-Shades Before Dawn) replaces Giulliano as drummer. With the new lineup, the band moved from classic heavy metal to prog metal. However, shortly after that Luis Requiao left the band. Months later, nevertheless, GREENSLEEVES was disbanded.

The band resumed activities only 9 years later, to start recording "The Elephant Truth", with lead singer Gui Nogueira, guitarists Victor Schmidlin and Cicero Baggio, bassist Joao Koerner and drummer Marlon Marquis (ex-Dynahead)."

Released after recordings spread over two years, "The Elephant Truth" is a concept album by Brazilian heavy metal band GREENSLEEVES. The songs tell, nonlinearly and abstractly, the mental journey of a man in a coma. The storyline was inspired by the late John Godfrey Saxe's poem "The Blind Men and The Elephant", and mixes ideas from that poem to the life of the main character, in metaphors about the diversity of truth. Experimenting from traditional heavy metal to progressive and thrash metal, the album has Khallice's lead singer Alirio Netto as special guest in some tracks.

GREENSLEEVES inclusion in the Prog Archives database was approved by the Progressive Metal Team.

3 stars Brazilian band GREENSLEEVES was formed back in 1993, but in their first few years they didn't release any material and disbanded five years later. Come 2007; the band reunites again, and they have since then released two studio albums. "Inertial Frames" is the most recent of these, and was self-released in the fall of 2014.

Guitar-driven and dominated progressive metal is what the Brazilian band Greensleves has to offer on their sophomore production "Inertial Frames", but of a kind and variety that will feel familiar to fans of bands such as Queensryche and Dream Theater, flavored with a few thrash metal tendencies here and there. The vocals are intense and emotional though, and more so than under a strictly controlled delivery, a detail that will limit their general appeal somewhat, I suspect. But for those who prefer their lead vocals to be emotional, and tend to enjoy a guitar-dominated take on classic progressive metal, this album may well be worth a visit.

Thanks to UMUR & progmetalhead for the artist addition.
