Tribuzy is a Brazilian Power Metal band fronted by singer Renato Tribuzy. In 2005, they released the band’s first (and so far only) studio album. The album (Execution) featured guest performances by Heavy Metal legends such as Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween), Matt Sinner (Sinner), Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear, ex-Gamma Ray, ex-Tyran Pace), and Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween). Later the same year Tribuzy was able to perform the album on stage with all of the guest musicians (except Kiske) in São Paulo, Brazil.

The first four songs on the album are sung by Renato Tribuzy himself. “Aggressive” is actually an aggressive and fast Power Metal song. You’ll be impressed with Renato’s voice, which roughly can be said to sound like a mix between Dickinson and Scheepers. The two other songs, “Divine Disgrace,” and “The Attempt,” are also fast and aggressive Power Metal songs in the typical Brazilian style, and your thoughts may go to bands like Angra when you’re listening to this album.

“Forgotten Time” features Angra guitarist Kiko Loureiro. This results in some nice guitar harmonies and great solos. So does the next song; “Nature Of Evil.” This one is a little more Symphonic and features a guest performance by Matt Sinner on vocals, as well as the already mentioned Loureiro. The song is fast and the music gets some variation with Sinner’s Melodic Rock vocals. Renato gives extra strength to the song when he doubles Sinners’ singing with his high-pitched voice. It’s great to listen to strong material performed by two fantastic vocalists.

The next duet is performed by Ralf Scheepers and Renato. “Absolution” is the longest track on the album — about ten minutes. It also sees a guest performance on guitar by Roland Grapow. The song starts slow with Scheepers singing over a melodic part played by keyboard, bongo drums (!), and bass. After a while, the song speeds up and you get the high-pitched Metal singing that fans have come to know Scheepers for.

“Web Of Life” also features Grapow on guitar. This song is written in Helloween style, and could easily have fit into the band’s set list, while Grapow still was their guitar player. “Execution” is probably the best song on the album. Renato sings high-pitched in his best Rob Halford style, and a guest performance (once again) by Kiko Laureiro kicks ass. He plays great solos and there are always some great guitar harmonies wherever he goes. The song is a lot darker than the rest of the songs. The exception is the guitar solo in the middle of the song, where the band slows down and Laureiro plays a beautiful solo before it all speeds up again.

“Beast In The Light” is the last of the live songs on the record. This one features a guest performance by Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Roy Z. As always, Dickinson delivers the goods and his strong Heavy Metal voice fits great into Renato’s more high-pitched Power Metal vocals. “The Means” is a bonus track from the Japanese release of Execution. This is an acoustic song with acoustic guitar, violins, keyboards, and vocals; a beautiful ending to the album.

Execution Live Reunion is produced by Roy Z and Renato Tribuzy. Usually when Roy Z is involved in the production, you know it’s going to sound great, and this is no exception. The band is tight as hell and delivers world class Power Metal with this live release. If you like Brazilian Power Metal, this is going to rock your world. And, if that’s not enough, take a look at the line-up!
