Ex-Almah Guitarist Paulo Schroeber Dies

Former Almah guitarist Paul Schroeber, died at age 40 yesterday in Our Lady Mediatrix Hospital in Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil after he was hospitalized for several days for a ICU treatment.

Schroeber received a reconfiguration procedure cardiac device - similar to a pacemaker, which had no effect and a transplant was needed. Schroeber suffered from an enlarged heart, which caused accumulation of water in the lungs which caused difficulty in breathing.

The band released the following statement (translated using Bing): "We are deeply sad and Almah's shaken with the news that our brother Paulo Schroeber music died. Paul, as well as an extremely gifted musician was a single person, a kindness and a good mood genuinely special. The strength and the naturalness with which he dealt with his painting was one of many admirable characteristics. The man was prematurely, and as if adivinhássemos, we dedicate the show yesterday, in Florianopolis, to him. Get the lesson and the work, which proudly we recorded together on two albums. So little for what could still be done, but more than enough to ever be forgotten by us, ex-bandmates or by fans. Paul, thanks for the friendship and the music we share. Keep fingers in shape, one day we will have a sound again. ;)" More...

"Dear friends, fans and partners,

"There comes a moment in a man’s life when it is necessary to make a radical decision in order to move forward with dignity and renewed energy.

"I’m in a very happy moment, where now, at age 40, I’m fulfilled and incredibly satisfied to have succeeded in making almost all my personal and professional dreams come true.

"I have a beautiful family, many wonderful friends and fans who have followed me for over 20 years and a lasting career with more than 15 albums released, several world tours and thousands of copies sold worldwide.

"I am a lucky person to have made ?it this far, singing Heavy Metal and been around the planet playing the music I love the most.

"I've been thinking for some time now, about the path to follow and finally came to the conclusion that it is time to take the more natural road.

"It is with a mixture of relief, joy and sadness that I have to declare that from today on I am not the voice of ANGRA anymore, I'm leaving the band already missing a lot of what we built together, specially the happy times of Rebirth and Temple of Shadows. I will never forget everything that we experienced from good to bad times, after all we must always look at the good side of things, even when things are most difficult.

"I am eternally grateful for those 10 years of many victories and for all the opportunities given to me, I wish them luck on their journeys.

"Whenever they want or need I will be around and ready to support them! I am and will always be very proud of our history! My life is music and music is the food to my soul. I have many plans and projects for the future! Some of them are already well established, strong and generating excellent results and so, they demand and deserve my full dedication, and of all the people involved in it. That's why I also want to announce that Felipe Andreoli is not the Almah's bass-player anymore! He will keep working only with Angra and his other projects!

"I will go on with my ideals and my career as a singer, songwriter and producer. Thank you all, with love...

Edu Falaschi"

Almah Comments On Upcoming Album

Almah recently returned from hiatus and has now finished the recording, mixing, and mastering of its brand new album "Motion," which will see the light of day via AFM records this fall (the scheduled release date is to be announced very soon).

Guitarist Marcelo Barbosa commented on Almah, the new album, and the band's recent shows:

"Actually, I play in a few bands, and every one is special in its own way. Besides the fact that Almah is the most famous one among them and it has an opportunity to travel more playing live, the band is about to release a new album! It's always a challenge and as usual it's a very special feeling of this cold in the stomach when you have no idea what comes next. I'm very happy that the band is back on stage and I'm looking forward to the moment when everyone will hear the work that we've recorded. All of us are really excited with the final result.

"At the end of July we played the first live shows after a big break. We spent more than a year without playing live on stage but even the first rehearsal showed good sound and great team work. It's interesting, especially taking into account all the conditions.... Moreover, some song parts sounded even more natural and it was easier to play them. Of course, we have very good musicians in the band, but the songs, especially from Fragile Equality album, have very high technical level. And I believe, no one expected that it would be so easy to come back to live activities! I'm convinced that with more time and more rehersals for the upcoming Motion Tour Almah will sound so great on stage as never before! More...
