Report: Gates Of Hell + Thirdsphere @ States Club

Once again, a heavy night awaited those who did not mind the rain to go support the underground bands. Starting quite late (~1.30AM), Blame The Skies couldn’t make it, so the first band to step on stage was THIRDSPHERE from Castelo Branco. The band delivered their melodic Death/Heavy metal to the few people in the [...]

Report: COLHÕES DE FERRO IX

The bastards are almost leaving the primary school! Yes, Colhões de Ferro is moving towards the 10th edition, after the well succeed 9th one. Caldas da Rainha welcomed another successful event, this year (again) more focused on the grind sonorities, with the usual full house. We went there only for the night concerts, which started [...]

Report: DISAFFECTED + CORPUS CHRISTII + KAPITALISTAS DA PODRIDÃO @ Side B

Cold and grim night at Benavente to host the special Christmas edition of the Extreme Agression Fest. We were one of the few to go there the first night, to presence three bands with different sonorities. First, Alentejo’s newcomers KAPITALISTAS DA PODRIDÃO surprised us with a technically well executed death metal concert, instead of the [...]

Report: THE YOUNG GODS @ Tmn ao Vivo

 “Comme ci C’etait la Derniére Fois” THE YOUNG GODS visited Lisbon with the quality that they have increased throughout their long career. Before a full venue, the Swiss collective presented the best of their two first albums: “The Young Gods” and “L’Eau Rouge”, which are definitely not out of fashion. Like originally, no guitars were [...]

Report: Satyricon + Chthonic @ Paradise Garage

Many people don’t realise it but it took 7 long years for Satyricon to return to Portugal. The last time was in 2006, promoting “Now, Diabolical”. So it was no surprise to see a big queue of people at the entrance of the Paradise Garage in Lisbon. The opening band was Chthonic, a Taiwanese Melodic [...]

Report: Leprous + Blindead + Nebulous @ TOCA, Braga

It was on a very rainy night of November 1st, that the Northern city of Braga, Portugal hosted what could later be considered “a night to remember”. Norwegian Avantgarde Progressive Metal act Leprous brought Polish Blindead along with them, and Nebulous, a Portuguese Djent collective was responsible to be the first band to play. Apparently unknown [...]

Report: Hypocrisy + Hatesphere + Theriomorphic @ Hard Club

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 [...]

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 [...]
