The first release with the label will be the new album “Espresso Della Vita: Solare” that will hit the stores in Japan on May 23th
The subjective and artistic fulfillment always came first for the members of Maestrick, the brazilian prog roçk/metal band. Cultural relevance versus the market tendencies.
When you can align this with the economic incentive coming from the market, surely one has the best configuration for the production and diffusion of a musical project.
This is the case of Maestrick who has just signed a three-album deal with Japan’s largest record label and one of the most important record labels in the world, Marquee/Avalon.
Same label of bands like Yes, Epica, Foreigner, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Edguy, Haken, Queensrÿche, Cavalera Conspiracy, among others, Avalon was founded in 1997 as a division (for the phonographic market) of Marquee Incorporated Co Ltda. First Maestrick’s release on the label will be the album “Espresso Della Vita: Solare” that will hit the stores in Japan on May 23th.
“Espresso Della Vita: Solare” is the group’s new studio album, successor of the acclaimed debut album, “Unpuzzle!”, and the EP “The Trick Side Of Some Songs” that included new versions that Maestrick did for classics of Beatles, Yes, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Queen and Rainbow. “Espresso Della Vita: Solare” is the first part of a conceptual album that makes an observation of the human life by the perspective of a train trip. The album was produced by Adair Daufembach (Tony Macalpine, Hibria, Hangar) that was also responsible for recording all the guitars of the album.
“How many times I got caught up on the site of a major record company, looking at the cast and dreaming that one day a band I was part of would have a work artistically relevant enough to be in the midst of my idols. Basically this is what this contract with Marquee/Avalon represents for me and for my brothers in Maestrick”, said Fabio Caldeira, lead singer of Maestrick.
Besides Fabio, Maestrick is also formed by Heitor Matos (drums), Renato Montanha (bass) and Neemias Teixeira (keyboards). The quartet is in fact prepared to take advantage of every opportunity a contract of this magnitude can provide to a band like the Maestrick.
“It’s a dream come true, it’s a new stage that starts and more than anything we’re ready for the new horizons that this trip will take us”, added the singer.
“Espresso Della Vita: Solare” Will bring the tracks “Origami”, “I a.m. Living”, “Rooster Race”, “Daily View”, “Water Birds”, “Keep Trying”, “The Seed”, “Far West”, “Across The River”, “Penitência”, “Hijos De La Tierra” and “Trainsition”. The japanese version will bring an exclusive bonus track, “The Creation”
