Edu Falaschi : interview Play TV

Edu Falaschi with his band Angra, has recently been interviewed by Adriana Farias, from PlayTV, about the Japanese universe and their long lasting connection. Here are the answers from Edu ! (English translation from Angra Official Webiste).

"PlayTV – You are known for participating in the Anime events in Brazil. How many Anime Friends editions did you play with ANGRA or ALMAH (Edu Falaschi side project)?

Edu Falaschi – It is the first time that ANGRA participates in this kind of show but all of us have already performed individually specially at Anime Friends.

PlayTV – But do you have a connection with the Anime universe?

Edu Falaschi – We intend to continue close to these people who enjoy cosplay, cartoon and Japanese series because in fact everybody enjoyed those things in the childhood. We have already watched many Japanese series and we like this kind of audience. They rock in the shows and really love ANGRA.

PlayTV – Has this relation begun when Edu recorded the songs for “Saint Seiya”?

Edu Falaschi – It started with an invitation from Álamo (dubbing studio). They needed to select a Heavy Metal vocalist who was known in the media to record the soundtrack, so I was invited to sing “Pegasus Fantasy” and “Blue Forever”, from Saint Seiya. After that I was invited again to record “Never”, another song for the movies. As from there I have been taking ANGRA to perform in all Anime events.

PlayTV – So a big part of the ANGRA fans can be also considered as Anime ones?

Edu Falaschi – Our fans enjoy not only Anime but also RPG and videogames. People who like this sound end up enjoying ANGRA since the most of game and cartoon soundtracks are made by Heavy Metal songs, so they identify themselves with the band."

Edu Falaschi / Angra end Back To Life Tour 2009-2010

Report from Edu Falaschi Official website :

"Before the release of the 7th studio masterpiece AQUA (August 11 in Japan/Brazil and Europe in September, the exact date tba) and the start of the new World Tour supporting the album, Edu Falaschi with ANGRA has finished the Back To Life Tour 2009-2010 with a great performance on stage of Anime Friends Festival in São Paulo (Brazil).
This show became the biggest highlight of the final part of the tour. One of the most important rock/metal media in Brazil, “Whiplash!” Webzine highly appreciated the latest performance of Angra and Edu Falaschi on the festival.

Anime Friends Festival took place in Mart Center, São Paulo (Brazil) on the last week and it was dedicated to the famous Japanese art of Anime. It included shows of several Brazilian rock and metal bands and various events for anime fans. Angra played on Friday, 16th of July. The band presented the set-list of Back To Life Tour 2010 and, specially for this event, Pegasus Fantasy – a song from the soundtrack of anime series Knights of the Zodiac (Cavaleiros do Zodiaco) or Saint Seyia which is very popular in Brazil.

As Whiplash! Webzine reports, despite the diversity of people who attended the show (besides metal fans, for sure there were a lot of anime and manga’s fans) the band really rocked. Edu Falaschi was very inspired and his performance that memorable night was incredible, as he sang both the old and the more recent classics of Angra. In particular, the reporter mentions such classical song as Silence and Distance performed with great feeling and vibration that excited and united the public. And the great interpretation of Lisbon made by Edu Falaschi, as well as his recent version of Nothing To Say where he got its highest notes were accepted with great enthusiasm of the audience. And, of course, the hits from the “nova era” of Angra like Rebirth, The Voice Commanding You, The Course Of Nature, Spread Your Fire and others.

“Thus, if you have had any doubt regarding Angra, you can forget it! – tells Whiplah! – The band made a brilliant show on the stage of Anime Friends with a lot of respect to the fans, fascinating everyone with its professional performance, real team-work and great frontmanship of Edu Falaschi. It was a perfect aperitif before the things that should happen soon, and those who have been to there, will never forget”.

- Unfinished Allegro
- Carry On
- Nova Era

Edu Falaschi : official statement for internet / Orkut users

Dear friends and fans, due to a lot of confusions (especially around Orkut) we would like to clarify the situation concerning the Internet sources of Edu Falaschi. Please, keep in mind that Edu doesn’t have any personal account in Orkut, only Community pages in this social network. All the personal profiles in Orkut created as profiles of Angra and Almah vocalist Edu Falaschi are FAKES.

“I would like to make it clear that I’ve never had any kind of ORKUT profile. There are a few persons who pretend to be me. They are getting in touch with fans using my name cheating them and making use of the innocent people who think that they stay in a kind of contact with the artist Edu Falaschi. That is why I’m here now to make it absolutely clear that I reply to the fans only in my official FACEBOOK and MYSPACE. For those who would like to get to know about me and what kind of direct communication channels I have, please, visit my official website: or the website of my press agency MS Metal Press. There you can find all the official information about my career as well as the links to all my official pages.

Thanks for understanding!”
