THE END OF GRACE’s “Infinite Shadows Of Memories”

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Where I come from there’s a saying that goes something like “who awaits always achieves”. And then someone twisted it, creating a new and pretty negative version, that says “who awaits gets desperate”. The latter … Continue reading

BOOBY TRAP @ Metalpoint, 2017/09/15

Despite their almost 25-year-old career, this was the first time I was seeing BOOBY TRAP – therefore my high expectations. Expectations that weren’t met… at all. Good posture, no doubt, but I like my music a little less chaotic… They’d … Continue reading

AND THEN SHE CAME @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2017/08/11

Original Portuguese version on Glam Magazine. Maybe for the die-hard metalheads to take a break, things cooled down hugely when German AND THEN SHE CAME got on stage. Not that it was a dull gig, not at all, but their dynamism … Continue reading

This gallery contains 42 photos.

Third is the charm and the third band on stage was the most anticipated one. As a reviewer, I had the honor of listening to “Theory Of Perception” in advance, but to the majority of the crowd this was the … Continue reading

QUINTETO EXPLOSIVO @ Laurus Nobilis Música Famalicão, 2016/07/22

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. QUINTETO EXPLOSIVO is Portuguese for “explosive quintet”. If that doesn’t hint you about their goofiness, check out the Deadpool and Captain America outfits… The lyrics are also mischievous, full of offensive slang, and while some are pure … Continue reading
