CARAVELLUS was formed in 2002 by Glauber Oliveira – Virtuous guitar player from Brazil. This was a studio project in the beginning that had participation of a couple musicians. After the first demos recordings (2002-2004), the line-up was completed with Daniel Felix on Keyboards, Charles Erlan on drums, Paul Araújo on vocals and Pedro Lee on bass guitar. In September 2006 CARAVELLUS was signed by Erpland Records and recorded their first album “LIGHTHOUSE AND SHED” which was released in March 2007. The musical concept of walking in the footsteps of great and virtuos bands like Symphony X, Dream Theater and Angra formed the band and helped them to become known in Japan. Caused by musical differences, Pedro Lee, Charles Erlan and Paula Araújo had left the band. A new course for CARAVELLUS with new members and new ideas. For it, and after a long selection process, Raphael Dantas (vocals), Cleison Johann (bass) and Pedro Nunes (drums) joined CARAVELLUS in December 2007. With an inspiring mix of progressive power metal sound layered with classical and folk influences, CARAVELLUS has brought along the right tools to create originality and adroitness, audacity and quality. The band have made huge waves in Japan and France. CARAVELLUS was on Tour with Shaman(ANGRA’s drummer - Ricardo Confessori), and Hangar(ex-ANGRA’s drummer – Aquiles Priester). CARAVELLUS’s extraordinary musical talent, innovative songwriting and wonderful musicianship creates an immediate, emotional impact on even the most selective of listener. In the Knowledge Machine, CARAVELLUS brings the technical sophistication of progressive metal while transcending the genre by writing amazing songs with masterful musicality. The arrangements and song structures with highly technical, challenging instrumental work and unbelievable melodic vocal harmonies. With elements of thundering metal, rock, jazz, classical, Brazilian folk rhythms, solos with unstoppable guitar shredding and intense keyboards. The KNOWLEDGE MACHINE brings the featuring of two great vocalists: Dario Grillo and Ana Mladinovici. CARAVELLUS set out to write an album that was dark, melodic and progressive, as cohesive tracks that told a greater tale. "KNOWLEDGE MACHINE" is melodic and dark, but also back to the style progressive and brazilian roots. The virtuous and shred guitar of Glauber Oliveira together with bass riffs of Cleison Johann are accented by keyboard lines of Daniel Felix on top of drummer Pedro Nunes's constant precise drum beats that is crowned with awesome vocal of Raphel Dantas. Masterpiece!!!
