Album Notes
When a band is formed, things usually go with the flow naturally, as the time goes by. However, having an objective, a previous planning is something that can help effectively. This is the case of Vougan, band which had its base formed in July 2005 by former members of Dark Avenger, Acácio Carvalho, G Zus and Hugo Santiago. The line-up was complete in September the same year and set up with Acácio Carvalho (drums), G Zus (bass), Hugo Santiago (guitars), Rafael Galvão (keyboards, ex-Dark Avenger), and Carlos Zema (vocals, Coldera, Izrafel, Outworld, DSG-David Shankle Group, Heaven's Guardian).

About the music: the musicians set as a main goal to work towards the highest versatility, without setting limits in the creative process. Thus, the search for a unique sound was under way. In search of a free style away from the labels Metal owns, the band attempted to add Heavy Metal, Melodic Metal, Brazilian Music, Classical Music, Power Metal, Progressive Rock and even Thrash Metal elements to their music. Though, the most important thing in this process was the freedom of writing spontaneously, without any worry about trends.

After the rehearsal time, the band has recorded the song "Silent Souls" for the release of their official web site. During this time, Rafael Galvão was replaced by the keyboardist Felipe K. Then, Vougan decided to record the other songs and the result was the single "Silent Souls", released in 2006 and produced by Gustavo Vazquez.

Although there were only 5 tracks, this EP got the best reviews from the especialized press worldwide, becoming the highlight of several magazines and webzines in 2006 and 2007.

When they started touring, Vougan settled down and played gigs which provided them more consistency and being the opening act for the Dutch band After Forever, on October 11, 2006 in Brasília (BR) was the highlight of their tour.

At the end of 2007 the band released their first album, called "Mind Exceeding". This album has written a new page on brazilian heavy metal history, getting excellent reviews and reaching horizons that just a few of the brazilian heavy metal bands had gotten until then. The album was also released in Japan by "Soundholic" on July 23, 2008 and is now available through CD Baby as a digital download.
