» The south of Portugal, the region known as Algarve, is well known among tourists because of its beaches and nice weather. But Mindlock is the living proof that Algarve, Faro in this case, produces more than just a good tan – it produces good metal bands as well.
Hardcore oriented, these guys irradiate energy, between smiles and crazy faces. They’ve been around for more than 15 years and one can sense that experience by the way they perform so at ease and professionally.
Their debut album “Ego Trip” was released in 2003 and it took them 7 years to come up with a second one, “Enemy Of Silence”, which was the work they focused on the most.
They’re currently working on the third album and Vagos was the first to listen to one of the new songs: “Hellusion”. But I must confess one thing: Carlos Vilhena said the title in growl-mode, so I only understood the “hell” part. I had to check with them – thanks, guys!
“Firekiss”, “Alcohol Ecstasy” and “Sing Like You Were Dead” were some of the tracks that kept the mosh pumping. «
