SHAAMAN (formerly SHAMAN), the Brazilian band featuring former ANGRA members André Matos (vocals), Luis Mariutti (bass) and Ricardo Confessori (drums), has officially split up, according to a statement released by Confessori to the For Tomorrow SHAAMAN fan club. The break-up, which has been long rumored, is being attributed to personal and musical differences. No information is currently available regarding the bandmembers' future plans.SHAAMAN released its sophomore album, "Reason", in May 2005 via AFM Records. The 10-song follow-up to 2002's "Ritual" was mixed and mastered at Heaven's Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany with producer Sascha Paeth, who previously worked with such acts as KAMELOT, EDGUY, RHAPSODY and FREEDOM CALL. A DVD, entitled "RituAlive", came out in 2003.
