"Taking advantage of the break in the Angra and Sepultura's tour, the singer Edu Falaschi has scheduled some concerts with Almah in order to continue the promotion of the second album of the band "Fragile Equality". This time, the opening was for the band Illustria, Tito Falaschi's band, who recently released his debut EP "Demons Of War".

The concert hall was almost full when Illustria began his show with the eponymous song of their first album.

Then, Almah goes on stage and starts his show with "Birds Of prey", first track from the album "Fragile Equality", followed by songs from the first album, like "Take Back Your Spell" and "Children Of Lies". Almah grows up throughout his career and gains a larger audience by his musical identity.The quality of the band live is unquestionable and the relationship between the two guitarists Paulo Schroeber and Marcelo Barbosa is always a show apart. The show goes on and Edu Falaschi also appreciates the presence of Mario Pastore. One of the highlights of the evening was the performance of "All I Am", one of the favorite ballads of the public which was also lauched in acoustic version. "Beyond Tomorrow", one of the strongest tracks of the second CD, is much applauded and it was a great idea from the band to select it to make a video clip. Curiously, Almah has played only two songs from Angra "Bleeding Heart" and "Nova Era", which shows a certain independance of Edu falaschi and proof that the band has made his own way. The band ends with "You'll Understand", one of the best tracks from "Fragile Equality", and the first to be released at the lauch of the album.

Recently, the band said that he is already working on the composition of a new album to be lauched in 2010. Good news from one of the most promising bands of the Brazilian metal scene."
