|SCELERATA is a young and talented band from Brasil, now stepping into the scene with their very technical and power-ful melodic metal debut album "Darkness And Light". Formed in 2002 as they were school mates, they had no great interest in doing cover songs but immediately began writ-ing their own songs together with singer Carl Casagrande, who joined the band shortly after they decided to addict them-selves to the music. Just by recording one song and video called "Eminence" and by touring the south of Brasil they formed a very strong fan base there and sold 500 copies in the south of Brazil within a few weeks. Heavy and also a bit progressive in style they wrote powerful metal tracks and began to elaborate them to sophisticated songs with high energy and beats that keep pushing forward. Influenced by metal heroes like HELLOWEEN, IRON MAIDEN and DREAM THEATER, SCELERATA´s songs represent the new era of modern and melodic but at the same time classic heavy metal music. Ambitious guitar work, fast and aggressive double bass parts and pretentious melodies supported by Carl Casagrande’s brilliant voice. Also live SCELERATA already gained some respect while standing on same stages with giants like DEEP PURPLE, GAMMA RAY, MASTERPLAN and ANGRA. One of their biggest supporters Edu Falaschi, singer of ANGRA, is featured on SCELERATA´s debut "Darkness And Light", singing the song "Spell Of Time" on that album. Recorded at the Via Musique Studios in Sao Paolo, Brasil last year and mastered by Dennis Ward (ANGRA, PINK CREAM 69, KREATOR) at House of Audio Studios, Germany, MTM MUSIC now releases this brilliant debut worldwide. Get ready for some real heavy and at the same time melodic metal music!
