Band: Kiko Loureiro
Kiko Loureiro is the virtuoso guitar player of the known Brazilian power metal super group, Angra. His incredible talent is no question, I mean, I've been listening to Angra since their very first release and I must say that this dude is just amazing. Anyway, most debuts of guitar players tend to be kind of boring and the same neoclassical display, but here with 'No Gravity' Kiko lets us enter to his world. He did all the songwriting and there are no vocals in here. The music is in the neoclassical vein (but not shred like) with some progressive hints and just plain kick ass instrumental metal with traditional Brazilian influences. Mike Terrana (mostly known from his work in Rage) handles all the drums and does as always and excellent job, and the bass guitar is played by Angra's bassist Felipe Andreoli. Kiko also handles the piano, keyboards, percussion and programming. Excellent debut already in the hands of Kiko Loureiro.
