Release: 25 November 2013
Almah was established in 2006 as a solo-project of Edu Falaschi (Angra’s singer at the time). After the release of the debut album ‘Almah’, the solo-project turned into a permanent band that launched another two records, ‘Fragile Equality’ (2008) and ‘Motion’ (2011). In May 2012 Falaschi announced his departure from Angra to concentrate on Almah as his main band.
Almah have set ‘Unfold’ as the title of their fourth album, coming later this year on Scarlet Records. The album was recorded in São Paulo, Brazil and mixed and mastered by Damien Rainaud at Darth Mader Music in Los Angeles, California. The cover artwork was designed by Nathália Suellen, an internationally recognized digital artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who has previously worked with musicians, writers, publishing houses such as Dark Moor, Random House, Penguin Group, Harper Collins, Simon&Schuster, McCann Erickson, Scholastic and Harry N. Abrams Books to name a few. ‘Unfold’ is a concept album dedicated to such actions and qualities as overcoming, firmness, persistence and capability to transform bad things into something good. The idea expressed by such symbol as the Lotus flower refers to Oriental philosophy. It’s usually born in a swampy river but able to break through dark and dirty surface, to grow up beautiful and full of life and get to fresh air and sunlight.
