SEP.17.2010 – Release of Aquiles Priester’s Biography “From Fan to Idol” book in Expomusic 2010. [only portuguese]

During the fair Expomusic 2010 the official biography of Aquiles Priester “From fan to idol” can be found at promotional price of R$ 30.00 only on the store shelves Snake Lady and the magazine Modern Drummer.

The book telling the story of drummer Aquiles Priester has just been released. “From Fan to Idol” narrates the musician’s whole story, from his birth in South Africa to his move to Brazil when he was 6 years old and showing his personal and artistic development which made him one of the main rock drummers of the planet, respected by important musicians such as Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater).

The book was written based on over 20 hours of interviews conceded by the musician to journalist Antonio Carlos Monteiro. With this material in hands, author Circe Brasil undertook the task of giving the book its final form. The book also includes hundreds of photos of different phases of Aquiles’ life and career.

“When the crowd applauds a gig frenetically, they have no idea what each member of the band went through to get where they did”, states author and consultant Roberto Shinyashiki in the introduction. Aquiles’ story wasn’t any different. The focus of the book is exactly the determination that transformed the boy who went through huge difficulties into the acclaimed musician he is today. So more than a simple narrative that recounts moments of happiness, sadness, doubt and fun lived by the musician. “From Fan To Idol” can be read as a self-help book not because it overflows with theory, but because it shows, as a matter of fact, that incessant determination and work are the secrets of success.

“From Fan to Idol” will be released by publishing house Anadarco, also responsible for the graphic project and layout.

The material was recorded with six cameras in full HD system, thus allowing Aquiles’ performance to be shown in detail.

Besides the songs, “The Infallible Reason of My Freak Drumming” contains countless details which will be the joy of drummers, be they beginners or experienced.

05.JAN.2010 – News: The band Hangar inaugurates own tour bus

The band Hangar closed a deal with Selenium, the largest Latin American loud speaker manufacturer. They also manufacture Maverick amplifiers. The result of this partnership is unique in the national heavy metal market. For the first time in the history of the style in Brazil, the band will travel in their own personalized tour bus, carrying all stage and PA equipment necessary for the gigs. Therefore, all “The Infallible Tour 2010/2011” gigs will have the same stage and sound, no matter where the band will be playing. “This is the main reason why we still didn’t officially begin the promotional shows of “Infallible”. We were waiting for the bus to be completed,” says drummer Aquiles Priester. “We want to promote the album in an innovative manner in the national market because we’re sure that every heavy metal fan deserves to see and hear a quality gig,” concludes the drummer.

With this initiative, gigs are more viable than before since the transportation costs of the band, crew and equipment are usually very steep. With their own tour bus, the cost-benefit relation will be more interesting thus facilitating gigs all over the country.

The band is already scheduling gigs in Brazil for March 2010 and contacts should be made by email:

The Infallible Tour 2010/2011 is endorsed by: Selenium, Maverick Amplifiers, Mapex Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Evans Drum Heads, Pro-Mark Sticks, Staff Drum, Audio-Technica Microphones, DW Pedals, Gibraltar Hardware, Urban Boards PsychoShoes, Aeroric Customs Drums, Ciclotron, Zoom Effects, Power Click, Warm Music Amplifiers, Loud Vox, D’Addario Strings, Planet Waves Cables, Takamine Guitars, Ledur Guitars and Basses, Tokai Electronic Organs, Shred Cases, Strazza Cases, EM&T, Playtech, Consulado do Rock, Lady Snake Rock Wear, Batera Store, Joker Tattoo, Jander Tattoo and Stay Heavy TV Program.
