Brazilian power/progressive metal legends, HANGAR are deservedly named alongside DREAM THEATER, SYMPHONY X, FATES WARNING and PAGAN´S MIND as one of Progressive Metal´s best bands.
With the new line-up, the band set out to record six new songs, include some unreleased tracks, reinterpreted acoustic versions, and select studio cuts to comprise the 2-CD "Hangar – The Best of 15 Years, Based On A True Story".
This album commemorates the excellent songwriting skills and individual musicianship of HANGAR over the course of their 15-plus year career.
The strength of the songs is exemplified by the band´s ability to render acoustic versions of some of their heaviest tracks and make them sound just as good — if not better than — the original electric versions!
Highlights are many, including ´Hastiness´, ´Angel Of The Stereo, ´ ´Your Skin And Bones´, and ´Dreaming Of Black Waves´.
