POWER PROG is proud to announce that Brazilian Melodic Power/Prog
Metallers AGE OF ARTEMIS will release their second longplayer "The
Waking Hour" through the label. After our first cooperation with the
release of their debut album "Overcoming Limits" in January 2013.
POWER PROG has accompanied the band through the entire
development flow of this new masterpiece and is now looking forward to
bring "The Waking Hour" to you at July 18, 2014 as CD in Europe and
North America and as digital download worldwide.
Brazilian Metal band AGE OF ARTEMIS was formed in 2009 from the
idealization of drummer Pedro Senna and by involving prominent
members such as Alirio Netto (Vocals), Nathan Grego (Guitar), Gabriel
Soto (Guitar) and Giovanni Sena (Bass), all already known sizes in the
Brazilian Metal scene. Technique and musicality allied to different
influences exerted on each and including elements of Progressive and
Power Metal were their specifications.

With Edu Falaschi (Angra/Almah) they found the appropriate producer to implement their ideas into reality. The
result was the outstanding debut album „Overcoming Limits“, that receives extraordinary reviews until today and is
considered as a landmark of Brazilian Metal in the recent decade. Released in Brazil in 2011 via MS Metal Records
and 2012 in Japan through King Records, POWER PROG cared about the CD distribution in Europe and North
America and a proper and worldwide digital publishing of the album in early 2013. Decisive steps were done ...
Now we are talking about their second strike ...
"The Waking Hour" is an exceptional piece of Metal and much more ... individual, unique and trend-setting for one of
the most respected South American bands nowadays. Superb melodies alternate with instrumental refinements,
power meets progressive, technical skills are detached from emotional moments and elements of Brazilian folk
music refine the whole thing to a musical enjoyment which will not only inspire Metal fans. The protagonists are
beyond reproach and deliver a firework of styles and cross-genre excursions ... Without losing their straight Metal
roots and the necessary toughness! "The Waking Hour" has already now a secure place on the leaderboards of the
year, perhaps even in the current decade. This is an album that many genre greats would like to have made ... Now
it's up to AGE OF ARTEMIS to receive these entitled laurels!
"The Waking Hour" will be released in Brazil by MS Metal Records, in Japan via King Records and in all other parts
of the world and as digital download through POWER PROG
