Ultranova is a brazilian progressive rock band, formed by Thiago Albuquerque (piano/synth), Daniel Leite (electric guitar), Príamo Brandão (bass) and Henrique Penna (drums). The idea was to create a band with a unique sonority, as their own identity, without departing from the style to which they were identified in artists like Emerson, Lake & Palmer, King Crimson, Yes and Pink Floyd. They began to stand out in 2012 and from then on the band started to perform at festivals and events sharing stages with renowned brazilian artists such as Hermeto Pascoal, Egberto Gismonti and Violeta de Outono.

Soon their tracks were reaching some prog-rock web-radios worldwide, and the record company Rock Symphony (Rio de Janeiro/Brazil) invited them to release the debut album “Orion” by their label – that released and distributed some big progressive rock names such as Violeta de Outono, Focus, Le Orme, Nektar and Pendragon, in Brazil. After this contact, Musea Records (France) invited the band to also release the album in Europe – the label even has exclusive distribution of Discipline Global Mobile (King Crimson), Camel Productions (Camel) and Classic Rock Legends (Uriah Heep, Van der Graaf Generator and Genesis).

“Orion”, composed by the pianist, was released in May/2017 and it’s available on iTunesSpotifyDeezer and Amazon, physically on sale through Rock Symphony and Musea Records websites. As soon as the album was released it has begun to be feature prominently by the media, and the song Orion was named the 2017’s best ending track by

“You need to listen this album immediately, and should listen all the tracks with a special attention, can bet, you will love their music. Brilliant and fantastic, an amazing album and band, highly recommendable…” Ultranova named the band and record of the month by Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal E-Zine.

“Fans of pure prog should hunt this one down!”Prog Magazine.

“If you like instrumental music you will find this album to be one of your favorite releases of the year! The final track ‘Orion’, is a must listen for all prog lovers!”,

Orion by Ultranova is a very promising first album and I think that fans of 70’s Camel, Happy The Man and even Snarky Puppy will find much to enjoy here”ProGGnosis.
