Tolis G.Palantzas, manager of Sleaszy Rider, recently stated about OF THE ARCHAENGEL: "One of the most exciting things in the music business is to dicover some great, but unknown bands, it's like finding some hidden jewels... And listening for first time to this — unknown for me till then — band OF THE ARCHAENGEL, it was a huge surprise. These Brazilian dark metallers are a great band. They can mix so nice and smart many metal genres with gothic elements and compose some really great atmopsheres! The band's vision to make some steps forward to the metal scene, the great communication with us and their whole attitude, did it easier for us, to sign them in our label. Having a really good band like OF THE ARCHAENGEL on our roster makes our work more exciting and I hope that all the metal fans around the world will be at least so much enthousiastic as we are! After SEPULTURA and ANGRA, the next best band from Brazil is sure OF THE ARCHAENGEL!"
