From Aldo Carmine (28.03.2009):
Formed my first band in 1993 in Sao Paulo, two years after getting mad by watching the Rock In Rio II on TV, specifically the show of Guns N' Roses. After a few months with the name Euthanasia, the name has changed to Abrasion and our sound was much more heavier, influenced by Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Helloween.
In 1998 we recorded the demo "The First Mark", with 4 songs. Several contacts were established and new line up has been firmed: Alexandre Siqueira - Vocal, Aldo Carmine - Guitar, Carlos Aleixo - Guitar, Romao Valladares - Bass and Alex Mello - Drums. In 2001 we recorded the first album entitled "Abrasion", released by Megahard Records. The album's been praised by magazines such as Roadie Crew and Rock Brigade. Good shows and new opportunities arose, but in 2002 the band had changes in the line up: Leticia Morgan is the new vocalist and brings the band a different sound. Some new songs were composed and recorded but not released. Another singer joins the band in 2003 Marcelo Morato, but in 2004 the band was separated, returning only in 2007.
In 2004 I moved to Campo Grande / MS, and I joined the band Kebra Nozzes, that was a different sound than I was accustomed. Through this band I joined the band Mantris, which had proposed a heavy sound, Heavy Metal, with influences of classical music, so a violinist joined the band. In 2007 recorded the album "Existence". At the end of 2008 I left Mantris and joined the band "Rhevan" (as drummer), which is a Gothic Metal with influences from traditional Metal, and in return I started recording, totally by myself, my first solo project: Imaginary, with songs I wrote over the years and also new compositions. I had good experience in performing and producing recordings (Mantris / Kebra Nozzes / Rhevan / Abrasion) and I am in charge of all production and recording of all instruments in my project.
I also produced local bands such as: Legacy, Escolhidos, Livov and Aquario Cosmico.
