"I can only thank the former members for the good
moments and wish them good luck in their career. Many times our lives point at
different paths and basically that's what happened. For the past few months
SupreMa has been working day and night for this second leg of the tour in
support of the album and I'm extremely happy and motivated with this new lineup.
We took new breath, new energies, people with "blood in the eyes", willing to
lift SupreMa's name and also Brazilian metal even higher all over the world, and
that's what I can say SupreMa is today, a team that's totally focused on work
and with a lot of fuel for the next steps.
I'm thrilled to have Helmut
back in the band, last year he played a show with us in Manaus without one
rehearsal whatsoever and it was amazing, the chemistry that we have when we're
playing is scary! I'm also happy with Diogo Noleto joining us, a simple and
charismatic guy who will surely enchant every fan of the band right away. He's
an amazing singer that got me and the whole band and crew amazed even before his
first audition with us. His voice is HUGE and I have no doubts it will surprise
all fans of the band. Be it in the heavy parts, be it with his clean voice or
even the feeling progressive metal needs, he surprises during each second of the
song. He has an unique voice and I wish for every fan enjoying with us this new
Brazilian talent. With these guys full of fire we will climb the next steps we
are aiming for.", said guitarist and band founder Douglas Jen.

special year and we are preparing a few releases with this new lineup, we can't
wait to be able to announce the news and show the fans the new sound that's
coming ahead.", says bass player Fabio Carito.
