Imagery inks international deal with Cleopatra Records

Bands like Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind and Nektar are also on the roster of the american label

With just five years of career and one album released, the Brazilian prog rock/metal band IMAGERY already has much to be proud of.

In march of last year, they did the opening-act show for FOCUS, the progressive rock worldwide legend.

The Inner Journey, its debut album, was nominated as "Best Heavy Metal Album from 2012" for "Premio Dynamite", the most important prize of the Brazilian independent music scene.

The debut was very well received by the entire Brazilian press and got maximum rate in some magazines and sites, among them, Rock On Stage. They declared that IMAGERY "owes nothing to bands like Dream Theater and Fates Warning in terms of quality".

Among these and other achievements, perhaps the most important is the one the band is now announcing: the signing of a contract with an international record company!

IMAGERY has just inked a distribution deal with the american label Cleopatra Records that now will make available the album The Inner Journey for North America, Europe and Asia.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Cleopatra Records is for 20 years in the music industry and is one of the biggest references in the prog rock camp. Legendary progressive bands like Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind and Nektar are also on the roster of the label.

The musicians of IMAGERY registered on video the moment they signed the contract with Cleopatra Records on the night of the last August, 26th in the band's studio in Londrina, Brazil. Check it out:
IMAGERY is currently formed by Joceir Bertoni (vocal/guitar), Ricardo Fanucchi (bass), Bruno Pamplona (drums) and Henrique Loureiro (keyboards).
The band has also launched its first video clip for the song "Start The War":
