Report: DARKNESS RISING FESTIVAL, pt 3/3

DAY 3 And the last day of the festival started surprisingly on time, making us loose TERRORHAMMER overture show. We must say that we got so used to the Serbian schedules that this third day turned out to be a bit “overorganised” for us. But there was two more bands to play, and so the [...]

Report: SANTA MARIA SUMMER FEST, part 1/3

Less than a week after returning from Darkness Rising Festival, we shipped south, towards Santa Maria Summer Fest, in Beja, Alentejo. Besides the good line up that the organization was able to join, this event had another natural advantage: the entrance was for free, to everyone. So, naturally, you could see all genres of metalheads, [...]

  Report Part 2 & 3 If you never went to Serbia, what do imagine it to be like? Party, nightlife, crazy people and good looking women? You’re not wrong. But be prepared to extend the nightlife till morning. Even in open air metal festivals. In fact, everything seems to go later than usual there, as for [...]

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: Amplifest 2012

Amplifest returned in 2012 for the third edition, putting Porto again as the Portuguese capital of dark alternative arts. Even if you think at this event as a “post intelectual” festival, Amplifest 2012 was much more than that. First of all because Hard Club is probably the best Portuguese venue for the moment; In second [...]

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 [...]
