With just five years of career and one album released, the Brazilian prog rock/metal band IMAGERY already has much to be proud of.
In March of last year, they did the opening-act show for FOCUS, the progressive rock worldwide legend. The Inner Journey, its debut album, was nominated as Best Heavy Metal Album from 2012 for Premio Dynamite, the most important prize of the Brazilian independent music scene.
Among these and other achievements, perhaps the most important was the already announced signing of a distribution deal with the American label Cleopatra Records that now will make available the album The Inner Journey for North America, Europe and Asia. The album arrives in stores from these three continents on November, 19th.
Based in Los Angeles, California, Cleopatra Records is for 20 years in the music industry and is one of the biggest references in the prog rock camp. Legendary progressive bands like TANGERINE DREAM, HAWKWIND and NEKTAR are also on the roster of the label.
Brian Perera, president of Cleopatra Records, wrote recently a statement where he explains why they did decide to offer Imagery a deal.
"Imagery skillfully mixes classic progressive rock with modern heavy metal. It's been awhile since we've come across a new band that can seamlessly blend genres. After years of working with prog masters BILLY SHERWOOD, Nektar and BRAINTICKET we see potential in the band and would like to help them expand into the major markets of North America, Europe, and Japan".
Imagery is currently formed by Joceir Bertoni (vocal/guitar), Ricardo Fanucchi (bass), Bruno Pamplona (drums) and Henrique Loureiro (keyboards).
The band also recently launched its firs video for the song ‘Start The War’.
