DALLAS,TX (WiredPRNews.com) – Dallas TX based independent label Metaledge Records announced that it has signed Sao Paulo, Brazil hard rock band Remove Silence. The band will release their already popular album “Fade” to North America via digital and physical distribution.
The band consists of Hugo Mariutti on guitar/vocals, Fabio Riberio on keyboards, Ale Souza on bass/vocals, and Ed Cominato on drums. Among the many efforts in the music business realized by the members of REMOVE SILENCE over the years is the album “Ritual” (with the band SHAMAN), released by UNIVERSAL MUSIC, from which one of the tracks (Fairy Tale) was included as the theme for the main character of the soap opera “Beijo do Vampiro”, presented by the major TV channel in Brazil – REDE GLOBO. This album sold more than 50,000 copies in Brazil alone, and many more over the world. The end of the world tour that lasted more than two years with more than 250 shows culminated with an “audience record” concert at the Credicard Hall (the biggest venue in Sao Paulo) for the recording of the CD/DVD SHAMAN – “RituAlive”, which was among the top sellers of the segment as well.
As for live gigs, the members of REMOVE SILENCE toured the world many times in the past two decades, with ANGRA, SHAMAN, ANDRE MATOS, and other projects, from Brazil and South America to Mexico, Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, England, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Japan. HUGO MARIUTTI and FABIO RIBEIRO are also members of the ANDRE MATOS BAND, with one of the most respected heavy metal singers in the world. The band released two albums from 2007 until now (“Time To Be Free” and “Mentalize”, both very successful, specially in Europe and Japan), and keeps on touring. EDU COMINATO also plays in the band of the singer JEFF SCOTT SOTO (Ex JOURNEY), with which he tours regularly. Recently the band recorded the live DVD “One Night In Madrid”.
The debut album, REMOVE SILENCE – FADE, was released in Brazil in September 2009, via Dynamo Records, and is obtaining excellent response both from public and press, in Brazil and worldwide. The video clip for the title track “Fade” is seeing rotation on MTV-Brazil.
