2005, when someone put up a metal fest in their basement, in some village (Vila Cova de Carros) in the middle of nowhere! Now those were the days… http://www.facebook.com/PitchBlackThrash

Revisited: THERION @ Sala Jam, 2007/01/27

This gallery contains 54 photos.

Here’s another blast from the past while this pandemic lockdown doesn’t allow me to go to concerts… 14 years ago, I drove my little car through icy roads to Bergara, Spain, to catch THERION on their “Gothic Kabbalah Tour”. With … Continue reading

Revisited: PRIMORDIAL @ Hard Club, 2006/02/16

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Every PRIMORDIAL gig is a roller coaster of emotions and even if I can’t recall the specifics of this one – pretty sure I’ve shed a couple of tears on “The Coffin Ships” though – I still remember the general … Continue reading

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD House Party, 2020/12/18

This gallery contains 90 photos.

Dedicated to everyone suffering from live music withdrawal, especially Sandrinha and Pipo. Live streams are far – waaaaaay far – from “the same thing” as live on-site’s, but it helps filling the void left by the lack of the latter. … Continue reading

MOONSPELL @ Super Bock Arena, 2020/12/17

This gallery contains 48 photos.

For Suzy and Phil. Funny how you’re so hungry for live music and then almost miss a concert next door to your granddad’s… But there’s a Portuguese saying that goes something like “those who have friends don’t die in prison”, … Continue reading

REVOLUTION WITHIN’s “Chaos” release party @ Hard Club, 2020/11/06

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. The crowd’s response to INFRAKTOR was stellar, but when the intro “Nebula” echoed, there was no doubt left about whom they all were really waiting for. “Chaos” had been released a week before and … Continue reading

INFRAKTOR @ Hard Club, 2020/11/06

This gallery contains 57 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. It wouldn’t be my first time watching a metal gig from a seat, but QUEESNRYCHE, performing both “Operation: Mindcrime” as a theatrical play (see here) isn’t exactly the same thing as REVOLUTION WITHIN … Continue reading

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD @ La Riviera, 2020/02/17

First time I’ve heard of HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD was late 2009, when SONIC SYNDICATE announced a German tour with them. SoSy–Robin was so stoked about it that I had to check them out. But I was unimpressed at the time. Not … Continue reading

INFRAKTOR @ Mangualde HardMetalFest, 2020/01/11

This gallery contains 87 photos.

HardMetalFest, happening in Mangualde, is Portugal’s oldest metal festival – and the first to be held each year. For several reasons – most of them involving my day job – I’ve missed more editions than I’ve attended, but as INFRAKTOR … Continue reading
