Angel Heart formed back at the end of July 1991. The 4 band’s members were : Gustavo Monsanto ( vocals/violin/composer ), Rafael Kronemberger ( guitars/vocals), Rodrigo Figueiredo ( bass ), and Felipe Haubrich ( drums/vocals).

The band, coming from Petrópolis ( Rio de Janeiro ), had all theirs tracks in English, convinced that the best style for this kind of Rock is to keep all the lyrics in its native language. After five years of career, the band started playing in different places in Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, such as Areal, Itaipava, Rio de Janeiro ( capital ), Belo Horizonte, Juiz de Fora and so on.

Salient point of their career concerned two shows held in 1992 : airport Hangar ( Rock nas Alturas ) and Sport Club, where more than 6.000 assisted, as happened in 1994, in the Exposição Agropecuária de Petrópolis where they were selected among 450 other bands as finalist of the “Extra n’Roll” festival. The band recorded its first demo-tape at the end of 1991 and started gaining support from many specialized magazines such as Rock Brigade, Dynamite, Rock n’Rolling, etc, who helped the band in takin a step forward : making a dream come true…

Angel Heart spent three weeks, between May/June 1994, in the JG studio, in Belo Horizonte, to record ten tracks with the productor/sound engineer Gauguin (Skank, Sepultura, Overdose, etc) and some special guests, like Bozó (Overdose) and Eduardo Schectel (ex-Easy Rider), to eventually release the album, “WELCOME”, launched in the first 6 weeks in 1995 under Tarot Discos, in CD, LP and K7. Even though the results were not the ones expected in matter of selling and promoting and the band split-up because of broken promises by its label, the CD launching was more than positive and music press acclaimed their work.

The band also recorded a video clip for “Big Love” with a line-up change: bassist Leandro Rabelais. In December 1995, the band ended the year with a bang, helding a show produced by the CD store On Stage, where many bands were hosted, such as Big Allambik, Horizon and Angra, to play together with Angel Heart in a jam-session. At the end of 1996, the band performed and incredible show in the Belo Horizonte’s Bar Nacional where Angel Heart played covers of one of the most famous rock bands in the world: KISS. More than 1500 people attended the show.

At present, the band wants to perform other live shows, get a new label to release a new album (already in progress) and lead its way to the top.
