Report: ANGSTBREAKER + TRIGGER @ Underworld, Bucarest

When Hipocrisy is playing in town maybe the best thing to do is to attend their show. But, at the same time, that’s when the real underground rises. And that’s why we have descended to one of Bucarest’s most infamous underground clubs: the Underworld. On Saturday 21th September German punk Hardcore group ANGSTBREAKER was headlining [...]

Report: CAPITÃO FANTASMA + CORPUS CHRISTII + ATENTADO @ Rep. da Música

When we arrived to República da Música, we feared for another empty house night. But, by that time, the answer was simple: very few expected the gig to start on time. It is a tradition difficult to erase in this neighborhood… Well, in one of the more eclectic nights of the last years, ATENTADO opened [...]

Report: FORGOTTEN TOMB + INVERNO ETERNO and more @ Side B

Italian black/doom metalers FORGOTTEN TOMB  have returned to Portugal and to Side B, Benavente, this time accompanied by two Swedish acts. Notredame Productions added the fourth (national) element. The affluence was pretty good considering both the moment and date of the gig, which started with EREB ALTOR performance. This Swedish collective mixtures old school classic [...]

Report: PNEUMA + SCIENCE OF DEMISE + AGGRENATION + GENNOMA live@ Side B

In a weekend marked by the XVI edition of the mythical SWR Barroselas Metal Fest, Side B profited the presence of some international bands to host one parallel gig at Benavente. No one expected a full venue, so the few people present that night build the right atmosphere for an uncompromising metal night. Firstly with [...]

Report: LABIRINTO @ Side B

Brazilian post-rock band LABIRINTO played last week at Side B, Benavente, under their first European tour. The instrumental textures that they created filled an empty room with imaginary quiet sets, where we could chose the whole story of each one of the four short movies they presented. But yet, here and then, between the seductively [...]

Report: GROG + BLEEDING DISPLAY + BESTA and more live @ Side B

Sadly the concerts started two hours after the announced schedule with HUNTED SCRIPTUM, death/technical death metal from Braga. They had the tough task of opening the ceremonies, in a cold, (still) wintry night. Their carnivorous themes made the first attempt to warm a still not crowded Side B room, with some good appointments, including the [...]

Report: CULT OF LUNA + PROCESS OF GUILT live @ Paradise Garage

  After one first successful night in Porto, the Lisbon concert arrived for the second act of the Swedish in Lusitanian lands this year. It was the second time they played in the Lisbon area, and the affluence to the gig was higher this time. In fact, we may consider Cult of Luna as the [...]

Report: BELZEBONG + MOAFT + SATELLITE BEAVER and more @ Schizofrenia, Krakow

Krakow it’s probably the polish city with more metal concerts, and on the 17th November, Schizofrenia hosted one of them for us. This is where the old Kazamaty venue was settled, now transformed into an underground multi room venue, with a particularly good taste in terms of decoration, and reasonable beer prices. Being a Saturday [...]

Report: TYRANTS BLOOD + VOIDHANGER + HELL PATROL @ Progresja, Warsaw

  Progresja is Warsaw’s underground venue for underground acts. Located in a military academia, the people that you see around it make you confuse whether there are going to the concert as well or are just passing by….. . With two stages and affordable beer prices, the distance from the city center makes you believe [...]

Report: ROSA CRUX @ Caixa Económica Operária

Saturday night in central Lisbon. Rain falls over the Lusitanian capital, blackening the skies for Rosa Crux’s second year appearance in Portugal. The dark medieval group came from old Rouen (Normandie, France), to cover our souls with their dark and frightening anthems, putting on stage much more than a simple concert. It was a state [...]

Report: TIDES FROM NEBULA + KATABATIC – Side B, Benavente

Saturday night. Anathema plays in Lisbon, but we preferred drive to Benavente for our third experience with Tides From Nebula. I knew this polish group almost by chance, in a middle of the week concert in Lisbon’s downtown, early 2010. That time the first impressions were great and the polish youngsters gathered our admiration due [...]
