Progressive Metal LUFEH Paints A Dramatic Tapestry With Video “Find My Way”

Progressive Metal LUFEH Paints A Dramatic Tapestry With Video “Find My Way” New Album “Luggage Falling Down” Out Now!

Gera Penna– Keys, Duca Tambasco – Bass, Dennis Atlas – Vocals, Teo Dornellas – Guitar, Lufeh Batera – Drums Los Angeles based progressive metallers Lufeh (a band of both Brazilian and American musicians) recently released a new album “Luggage Falling Down” this past April and they couldn’t be more pleased with the results of the collaboration. Heavy, complex, and sophisticated, the tapestry of arrangements incorporates pop, progressive metal, and Brazilian music. Drummer Lufeh Batera shares his outlook on the new path the band is taking: “For those who know my drumming, they are going to notice lots of elements that express my drumming style, but also, they are going to see a different, more mature musician, and with lots of Brazilian music influence, combining double bass, with swing and odd times.”

Hunkered down for two weeks in the Los Angeles area, the whole band stayed together to record the album, visit NAMM and check out live concerts. The eight tracks on the full length were custom-tailored for this release; each track was thought out as a collaborative masterpiece. 

The first single from the album “Find My Way” has a video out, which clearly shows the passion and energy these musicians embody. Batera explains the picture being painted with this song: 

“It is the dictionary definition of a cinematic, high-energy show opener. Close your eyes and listen to this song, and you’ll see the stage lights hit as the first guitar lick screams out when the band cues out of the “intro tape”. The song also features a metrically disorienting instrumental section and poetic lyrics about turning dreams into reality.” “Find My Way” can be viewed on YouTube HERE. Melodic and aggressive, “Luggage Falling Down” is melodic, aggressive, andhas a strong foundation in jazz, but with a metal edge. Recommended for fans of Rush, Dream Theater, and Incubus, the album is available for stream and download on Lufehband.bandcamp.comSpotifyApple Music.

EPK About: Lufeh is a musical collaboration of excellent Brazilian and American musicians brought together by drummer Batera Lufeh. Lufeh himself has had a successful career performing with many famous Brazilian bands and artists, including one of the most well known Christian rock bands of its style, Oficina G3, among others. In 2008, he recorded his first solo album “Drummed On Classics”, which uniquely combined a mix of classical pieces with progressive rock drumming.

Since moving to the U.S. in 2014, Lufeh has continued his career as a musician, starting in Florida, where he performed with Kristo Reggae and Big Pine Band. Lufeh participated in the Blue Man Group Drum-Off in 2016, where he was awarded the privilege to take part in its grand finale in Las Vegas, and chosen as one of the top five drummers in the contest. He then moved to Los Angeles, CA, where he became the official drummer of Kenny Shipman.

Now, in 2020, Lufeh is an entire unit moving forward with the addition of Gera Penna (keyboard); Duca Tambasco (bass); Dennis Atlas (vocals);  and Teo Dornellas (guitar) who have proven to be a great match. The band recently released the highly-anticipated second album “Luggage Falling Down”, a solid record of Brazilian influenced groovy progressive metal, which has received great praise from reviewers, calling it a mix between Brazilian music, Rush, and Dream Theater.

The album is both melodic and highly energetic and aggressive. With a strong foundation in jazz and classical musicality, the band brings a metal edge to a unique melodic story. These progressive metal warriors have become tycoons of song structure and, throughout the album, display highly refined expertise in making music that is captivating to listen to, addictively technical, and uplifting.

“Luggage Falling Down” was released on April 17, 2020 and is available on all major digital platforms.
