Report: BURNING LIGHT FEST Day 2#

  DAY 2# The sunny (yet freezing) Sunday started with INFRA, the one and only corpse painted band of the weekend. Starting with the new “Communion”, this Lisbon trio showed again why they can no longer remain anonymous: their obscure death metal is too striking to be kept in the drawer. Cavernous vocals, demolishing drums [...]

Saturday promised 30 bands, 9 dj’s and, of course, the late hours of the first night meant that it would have consequences on the second day. But, with exactly one hour delay, we all could still be well organized. Starting with one of the biggest festival revelations for us: nationals ASIMOV. One drum, one distorted [...]

Report: SINISTER HOWLING IV @ Speyer

You are certainly familiarised with the city of Speyer, in the Rhineland-Palatinate state of Germany. At least you’ve heard about it, right? If you haven’t it means that you’ve been passing far away from some of the best European black metal. As for us, we returned to that historic city six months after the SPEYER [...]

Report: REVERENCE FESTIVAL day #1 @ Valada

Valada is a quiet place located 60 kms North from Lisbon, thus offering an interesting location to gather rockers from different latitudes. On top of that, this small town is not strange to loud and fast live shows, once it held, many years ago, the dead Festival Tejo, where bands as Moonspell and Ramp played [...]

Day 3 Stage 1 The last day started with an excellent show from BONDED BY  BLOOD. This revival thrash metal band from California (USA), has great stage presence.

The XIth edition of the Extreme Metal Attack took place last month, for the third time at Side B Club, in Benavente. Another intense weekend of pure blasphemy was carved by dedicated underground performers alongside with a quite numerous audience, fact that somewhat surprised us once the band bill was less appealing than in recent [...]
