Report: VALLENFYRE + FOSCOR @ RCA

  In a weekend marked by Burning Light Festival, Lisbon had another important event to offer, once British Vallenfyre came to visit our country for the first time. It was in a surprisingly well filled RCA that we entered by the sounds of Spanish FOSCOR, supporting band for the Iberian dates of the British headliners. [...]

Report: Epica + Dragonforce + Dagoba @ Hard Club

Sunday isn’t anyone’s favorite day to attend a concert, but it’s a disadvantage of tours, you have to be flexible… The first band was DAGOBA, a french groovy band in charge of starting the hostilities. Apparently not very known to the Portuguese audience, a conclusion taken based on both the amount of people and reaction [...]

Porto’s well known Hard Club, received the most recent Sólstafir tour. Accompanied by Indie Rock group Esben and the Witch and extreme Progressive Metal band Obsidian Kingdom, we were assured to experience some pretty intense moments.

Report: INQUISITION + IRAE +O CERCO@ RCA

What do Black Metal, Lisbon and Saturday night have in common? Not much you might think. But things changed, at least last weekend, with INQUISITION’s return to the Portuguese capital. Notre Damme Productions achieved almost 200 persons at RCA, in this venue’s first black metal gig ever. We believe that everybody involved had a positive [...]

Report: CELESTE + MANTAR and more @ Rep. da Música

“Pas pleine, mais surtout pas vide”, República da Música hosted Goodlife HQ’s most daring event: CELESTE headlining tour. The sound was pretty accurate during the whole night where it became clear since very soon that almost everyone was there with one main purpose: to be washed away by the French chaotic anthems. But before that, [...]

Report: DRENGSKAPUR + BRUMA OBSCURA and more @ Side B

Still in a cold April night, Side B hosted an honest black metal event, which finished the sequence of three black metal nights (with Morte Incandescente and Corpus Christii playing before) in the Lisbon area. Apparently with a less strong band bill, State of Warfare joined a significant mass of people at Benavente, with 11TH [...]

Salão Brasil, the well known venue located downtown in Coimbra hosted a sold out show which brought once again the sensation alternative Rock band Linda Martini to the city that is know as the City of Students.

What about une matinee noir au centre ville? Well, we sure know that dark events such as Monarch’s appearance in Lisbon should deserve a more latter schedule. But, let’s be honest, everything went fine at RCA Club, Saturday, the 22th February. The first live ever appearance of ONIROMANT marked the birth of another interesting national [...]

It’s always good news when central Lisbon offers you an underground concert evening, and we sure are glad to have whiteness the surprising last Thursday at Sabotage Club, in Cais do Sodré. Confirmed at the last hour, nationals BICHO DO MATO  were not a bad start, even if in a significantly different sound orientation. Portuguese blues [...]

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 [...]
