Report: BARONESS + CORREIA @ Paradise Garage, Lisbon

The line was quite long when we first approached Paradise Garage and it was easy to confirm what we already suspected: inside, a jam-packed venue would be waiting for the long awaited Baroness. But before them, we had CORREIA and their psych-infused rock. It was only their second time on stage but don’t let that [...]

CORREIA, the most recent project of Mike (More Than a Thousand/Men Eater) and [...]

One of the most beloved clubs of the area of greater Lisbon celebrated it’s 7th Anniversary and we just could not miss it. In the past 7 years, Side B Club was the stage of memorable gigs, great festivals but also welcomed many first times on stage for many Portuguese bands and musicians (yours truly [...]

Report: Orphaned Land + Stimmgewalt Choir + Molllust + Leaves @ Cinema São Jorge

With Orphaned Land on their first ever acoustic tour and after a successful performance this last summer at Vagos Open Air, it was not a surprise to hear that the venue was sold out for this evening. With them, 2 other bands and a choir were making their way to Portugal and to Cinema São [...]

Report: Venom Inc. + Vader + Divine Chaos + Witches + Filii Nigrantium Infernalium + Midnight Priest @ RCA Club

Legendary bands are not something you can find in every corner. They are special, they are ground breaking, charismatic, they achieve what others only dare to dream of. They are true leaders, not followers but still humble and true to themselves. We believe it’s fair to state that Venom fits into this definition and so [...]

Report: Cannibal Corpse + Suicide Silence @ Paradise Garage, Lisbon

It has been quite a while since both bands on today’s bill have been to Lisbon and so the excitement in the air was almost palpable, even before the doors opened. The crowd was growing fast and a big line outside Paradise Garage was fidgeting to get inside and unleash hell. The last time SUICIDE [...]

Report: SARDINHA DE FERRO V @ Side B, Benavente

It was under what you could call an infernal heat that the first few metalheads started their march towards Side B, in Benavente, Portugal, to attend the fifth edition of Sardinha de Ferro (or, as one of the bands of the day – Ravensire – had written on their set list, “Iron Sardine of Hell”!). An [...]

Report: KING DUDE @ Music Box

When the clock hit the 10.30pm mark, the set time for Music Box to open it’s doors, we could already find a long line, covering with black the infamous “pink street” in Cais do Sodré, Lisbon. Restless souls, expecting for King Dude’s luciferian blessing, anxiously awaiting for this much anticipated evening to start. With an [...]
