“We want to pay our personal tribute to Andre Matos, one of the most important composers and singers in the melodic Metal world, who suddenly passed away last month. We’d like to remember the master with one song taken from Angra’s masterpiece “Holy Land”. This album, with its romantic and tribal influences, its fairy melodies and astonishing technique, expresses all Andre’s essence and poetics.”

The album was unleashed to the masses on June 30th, 2017 via Sleaszy Rider Records. “Descending…” is a concept album, running through the circles of hell, that exists only in our minds, where all the fears, vices, virtues and the dark side of the human kind are showed in the form of a theatre comedy.
