After 10 days I still have no words to express all this pain that I have in my heart!

My daughter has Japanese blood and a part of my family is Japanese, and this make the sadness that I feel even stronger!

But I’m sure that Japan will rise again and will show to the world why this country is so evolutive!

I know that Japan lost many innocent lives, but if this kind of disaster had happened in some other country, we would have million of dead people! I’m proud of Japanese people! Their respect, culture and intelligence, saved million of lives!

With all my love and respect,

Edu Falaschi

Artemis (produced by Edu Falaschi) : vocal sessions

Here is a video report regarding vocal sessions of the band Artemis, produced by Edu Falaschi, filmed at Norcal Studios (São Paulo, Brazil) a few month ago :

Edu Falaschi (producer) and Alírio Netto (vocals) comments, excerpts from the video :

Edu Falaschi : "Hi folks, what's up ?
We're back at Norcal Studios finishing Artemis debut album. We have here Alírio Netto ... He's a great friend and it's an honor having Alírio joining the band. As a matter of fact things have changed and Alírio was asked to put his voice on the Artemis album. I got very happy because I'm an Alírio's fan. It's great having a great singer in a band which I'm producing ... Now I'm pretty sure that the whole album will be perfect. At the moment, we are finishing a couple of songs. We still have a couple of days recording voices, and then we will record the chorus part. We're very happy and we'd like that you guys keep searching about of Artemis. And stay tuned about the news from Artemis recordings ... I'll let Netto introduce himself in order to you guys know more about him.

Alírio Netto : I make your words mine ... It's a great pleasure being here and being produced by Edu, because we know each other for some years and he's already know about my voice and he helped me reaching results that I never imagined. The other recordings I did, my voice used to go for a certain style like Dream Theater, Rush... And Edu understood how my voice works and he managed to get a better adavantage of it. And he said this experience has been awesome and I think we ended up getting closer. I think you guys will enjoy the album. It's worth for you guys to check it up.

Edu Falaschi : As he said we already have this friendship and I asked him : "Can I produce you so much until we lose our friendship ?", because in general producers have to be tough in order to have great results. Of course, working with Netto, things get easier because he already knows what to do, singing notes well tuned. We did this work together and we got great stuff here. We still have a couple of songs left but I'm pretty sure the whole album will be at least a work of art. I'm pretty sure you will enjoy a lot. We have this guys here, that I think you already know, who recorded guitars and drums. There are two guitar players, you will listen to their talent. They are very good musicians. After listening to the album I can say that they are great musicians, composers and we have here two of the best guitar players from Brazils. And we also have here the drummer, this kid is a phenomenon. He's still twelve ..."Happy Feet" (because of the double bass). He just turned to eighteen, he plays very well ... He's prodigious. I'm pretty sure this album will enchant you guys. In general kids are worried in playing fast notes, just showing technical stuff, and even though they show this side they are also worried showing great songs. And that's the reason I accepted doing this job.When I heard the songs for the first time I thought this is something that is worthy. Soon you guys will have Artemis. See ya soon !"

Angels Holocaust about Edu Falaschi as producer

From Edu Falaschi Official Website :

"Brazilian metallers Angels Holocaust launched the new demo EP “Crystal Night” in the beginning of February. The material was recorded, mixed and mastered at Norcal Studios in São Paulo under direction of the renowned musician and producer Edu Falaschi. Angels Holocaust’s frontman, Rodrigo Cafundó, tells about the work with Edu in the interview for Heavy Banger blog. Check out the parts of the article dedicated to Edu Falaschi here! You can check out the songs of the band produced by Edu Falaschi at the following link:

Heavy Banger : This time the band has got to significant conquests and among them there’s the production of the new EP “Crystal Night” by famous Edu Falaschi, the vocalist of Angra and Almah. What does it mean for you and the band?

Rodrigo Cafundó : This is a great achievement! Right now, with the complete material in our hands which we have intensively broadcast through our official sources, we’ve got the idea, how it is important! The work of Edu, the quality of Norcal Studios and, of course, everything we have learned during the process, all this has influenced us in various aspects. We are more concentrated, we are extremely focused on everything we do now. I’m totally sure that these 15 days that we spent in São Paulo producing our new EP made us grow up a lot as musicians and as persons. It was unique experience to work together with Edu, with this real master!

Heavy Banger : Many recognized bands prefer to make the final touches to their albums, to the mastering, in the studios abroad, for example, in Germany, Sweden and other countries. Can it happen in the same way with a future CD of Angels Holocaust?

Rodrigo Cafundó : It’s too early to confirm it as yet, but the professionals and the whole infrastructure today in Brazil have excellent level and our intention is to continue our partnership with Edu Falaschi and Norcal Studios. We are extremely satisfied with the final result of our new work.

Heavy Banger : Do you plan any special participations? Many people would like to hear even the duet of Edu Falaschi and André Matos, the actual singer of Symfonia. (smiles) Is there any chance of it?

Rodrigo Cafundó : Hahaha, well, it could be a real dream for us too! As I affirmed in other interviews, our partnership with Edu is to make the production of the band. And I confirm that I became surprised with his methods of working. He’s a very professional and talented man. We became really amazed! But, returning to the question, we got to know André playing together in our home city, Itapetininga and gave a collective interview. He’s an icon here, one of the best voices, so it could be an honour for us. But as to Edu Falaschi, I’m very partial… very interested person to tell something about him… I follow his career since Symbols and I believe that today he’s one of the principal representatives of Brazil. He is the vocalist of Angra and Almah, soon he’ll take part in Kamelot show here, besides being a great artist in general and, YES, I hope to sing as a duet together with him for the debut long-length album of Angels Holocaust!"
