Because Casainhos isn’t just a “‘core” festival, it also featured a few metal bands in the bill. Coimbra thrashers TERROR EMPIRE were the first ones. A handful of fans moshed around and sang along the lyrics to their debut album “The Empire Strikes Black”, released last year via Nordavind Records (at the time I wrote the review to another zine and haven’t re-posted it here yet – mental note to do so in the future).
When attending/working at the Mosher tent at Vagos Open Air the previous month, guitarist Rui Alexandre (a.k.a. Satan) seems to have spent a fair share of the first night singing some song about cowboy boots… It was asked by someone in the crowd but sadly, it didn’t happen.
