This year we managed to see the first band. Not from the beginning, but I think we’ve only missed a song or two – brownies for the bus trip promoters. That first band, BURN DAMAGE, was a groove-death-metal one formed in 2008 and which has been female-fronted for the last three years – something for which Inês was very grateful and publicly expressed so, thanking her bandmates for helping her grow so much as a singer. She’s quite good indeed, her growling brutal and steady. Bass player Sílvia (yes, another girl) uses her fingers instead of a pick, which always deserves my respect, and guitarist Nuno shows how fiercely he is into the music through funny faces. Together with drummer Alex, they put up a heavy and loud gig. Highlights on the title-track of their debut EP “Reborn” and on “Burn ‘Em All”.
