2021: gold, silver and bronze medals

I’ve been giving these virtual medals for 10 years now, so you can understand how heartbroken I am that this 10th anniversary edition is so poor in numbers: 9 events, featuring 25 performances, all in my home country, all in … Continue reading

INFRAKTOR @ Metalpoint, 2021/10/30

This gallery contains 63 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. My first concert without restrictions. I still wore my mask but for mere precaution – it wasn’t mandatory anymore. And even if I’ve never been a big fan of mosh pits, it felt … Continue reading

HYPOCRISY’s “Worship”

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. I was sure “End Of Disclosure” had been released in 2013 but when doing the math… I had to double-check on Google, as it seemed surreal that it took eight years for HYPOCRISY to come up with something new. … Continue reading

Revisited: THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA’s “Aeromantic II”

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. I’m not sure if an “Aeromantic II” was in order when the first one came out, but it seems like the latter’s follow-up wasn’t supposed to be released so early: forced to cancel the “Aeromantic” tour due to the … Continue reading

Revisited: LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT @ Dead Hour Fest, 2007/11/10

Legendary goth/darkwave/industrial LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT were headlining this new fest (actually, I believe it was the only edition of it, but can’t tell for sure) and I couldn’t miss it. Of course I was still walking with the aid of … Continue reading

Revisited: NILE @ Caos Emergente, 2008/09/13

13 years seems a lot longer nowadays – the lack of gigs caused by the pandemic make the ones we saw right before it feel like they happened a lifetime ago, let alone the ones we attended back in 2008… … Continue reading
