Hearts go out to power metal fans around the world and especially our readers in Brazil. The sad news broke over the weekend of the death of popular original Angra vocalist Andre Matos. I am sorry I could not post something here on the main site sooner as I was working all weekend, but it was heart warming to see the online tributes on various social media.

Matos was an extremely talented singer who accomplished a lot in his lifetime and who had a soaring voice that will echo in the ears and stir the hearts of many for ages to come. Truly Matos earned a spot in the Halls of Metal. It is still interesting to wonder how it would have been if Matos had been chosen to replace Dickinson in Iron Maiden (no disrespect to Blaze, who we love around here).
