This gallery contains 120 photos.

Concerts are slowly starting to happen across Europe, but I haven’t been graced by any yet. Not that I’d have missed this even if I had attended a gig every night for the past week – just wanted to let … Continue reading

Revisited: WEB @ Irmandade Metálica, 2009/05/16

This gallery contains 42 photos.

Still with no new gigs booked in a near future, and being Filipe‘s birthday today, revisiting WEB‘s performance at Irmandade Metálica, back in 2009, seemed like a good idea.  The event took place in Benavente, at the famous Side B, … Continue reading

L.A. GUNS @ Whisky A Go Go, 2019/12/31 (live stream)

For Artur, Mourato and Miguel. Once upon a time, I’d head to a venue pretty early to secure my spot in the front row. Lately I’ve been “arriving” in front of the computer half an hour early to make sure … Continue reading

Having in mind the International Women Day last Monday, Hard Rock Cafe Porto had a female-fronted band on their streaming sessions: SOLLAR. Here are a few screen shots I took while I watched it, longing for “the real thing”. http://www.facebook.com/Sollarpt

MOONSPELL’s “Hermitage”

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. I’ve never been quite comfortable in calling MOONSPELL “gothic metal” as that’s too much of a specific term to grasp all aspects of their music; “dark metal”, covering a broader range of said aspects, sounds more fitting. … Continue reading

Revisited: HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD’s “New Empire, Vol. 2”

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. “New Empire” is HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD’s gold coin – volume 1 showing their heaviest side, and now volume 2 showing the exact opposite. Which one is better? Well, that’s the same as asking if a burger is better … Continue reading

This gallery contains 42 photos.
