ANGRA – music video for two-part ‘Tide Of Changes’ song unveiled; ‘Tide Of Changes – Part II’ available for streaming!

»Cycles Of Pain« is embracing the world! To be released on November 3, 2023 via Atomic Fire Records, iconic Brazilian progressive power metallers ANGRA are ready to present fans with their highly anticipated new studio album this autumn. Lead single ‘Ride Into The Storm’ sounded the attack in August, with hundred thousands of fans celebrating the group’s impressive return, and now, the quintet go one step further: ‘Tide Of Changes’ is an ambitious two-piece song consisting of an introducing but not minor essential ‘Part I’ leading into ‘Part II’ which spreads a slightly Far Eastern feel before evolving its beauty, pushed by significantly dominating bass lines of Felipe Andreoli. Additionally, a film crew around Leo Liberti (https://www.libertafilmes.com.br) have once again created a stunning music video for the band, this time also adding 3D effects putting a futuristic stamp on it. The result can be seen below.

Andreoli comments: “This song came to life very quickly. After I played around with the initial riff, all subsequent parts kind of naturally fell into place. It’s a song full of dynamics and different textures, with a look to the future while we also nod to the past, especially in the middle section. Fabio did a brilliant job with the vocal lines and delivered a very inspired performance. The intro came about while I was working on some harmonies, then Fabio joined in and the magic happened.”

“The ‘Tide Of Changes’ lyrics were the first I wrote for the »Cycles Of Pain« album and portray exactly what the title denounces. We live in a moment of great instability and, while our ego seeks the comfort zone and control, it is fundamental to adapt to this impermanence, to surf the waves of destiny and not on our expectations. It’s the pains and frustrations that shape and strengthen us, to the point where we can beat our chest and say: ‘Let the next wave of difficulties come. Want to take another piece of me? Come on, I’ve waited for this moment!'” concludes guitarist Rafael Bittencourt.
