Adagio Part Ways With Singer Gus Monsanto

Brazilian singer/guitarist/songwriter Gus Monsanto has parted ways with the French prog-metal band ADAGIO after four years of hard work, which included a successful album and a European tour.

"We parted ways friendly," Gus said. "It has been an overwhelming experience to fill David Readman's shoes and I will take with me the great people I met on the road, the friends I made during this period, the countries I have visited. The road stories and great music I made with Stephan, Franck, Eric and Kevin will not be forgotten. They will carry on as the archangels in black they are, we are metal commandos."

Gus' departure from ADAGIO will allow him to focus in other hard rock and heavy metal projects.

"There's a lot on my plate right now. June 8 will see the release of THE LIGHTSEEKERS CD, which is a really great French hard rock band I have been working with," Monsanto said. "I also have a spankin' new project called ZYON VEGA with fellow AQUARIA members Bruno Agra (drums), Fernando Giovanetti (bass) and Alberto Kury (keyboards), plus ATLANTIDA's guitarist, Alexandre Macedo, who's been pursuing this new chapter with me."
