SHADOWSPHERE @ Cave 45, 2017/09/22

SHADOWSPHERE‘s relocation from Seixal to Porto forced the band to change half of their line-up. The transition to the new bass player Susana and the new singer Orca went smoothly but the drummer’s was a bumpy ride, leading to a … Continue reading

BIOLENCE’s “Violent Non Conformity” release party @ Metalpoint, 2017/09/15

In all honesty, I’ve never been a big fan of BIOLENCE‘s live performances. But it had been quite a while since I’d last seen them, and they didn’t have Marco on the bass and Afonso on the drums at the … Continue reading

GORGUTS @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2017/08/13

Original Portuguese version on Glam Magazine. Weariness apart, both last bands were meant for more eclectic ears and a fair share of the crowd considered Vagos done after HAMMERFALL. But GORGUTS technical death metal has many fans, especially among musicians, and … Continue reading
