ABOUT THE MUSIC
"Vougan's music has progressive elements, a great Rob Halford sound, some Evergrey choruses, and that cool Brazilian vibe. The band can always rely on Hugo Santiago's guitars to start the fire on every track. Also, the songs featured here are more diversified than one would expect."
