Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Five years of Hard Rock Cafe Porto – five bands to celebrate it, in an event scheduled to start at 5 p.m. (although I believe this was due to “pandemic logistics”…). CABBRA‘s Facebook … Continue reading

SOLLAR @ The Skull Room Studio Rockfest, 2021/11/13

This gallery contains 111 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. I’ve lost count of how many bands drummer Luís Moreira is involved with, but apparently he still managed to add SOLLAR to his portfolio and The Skull Room Rockfest was his premiere. And just … 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

Revisited: JESUS ON EXTASY’s “Beloved Enemy”

Original Portuguese version printed on Elegy Ibérica magazine. “Beloved Enemy” is the sophomore record of the digital dandies JESUS ON EXTASY. A more elaborate production – both in musical terms and image – this album turns into industrial goth the … Continue reading

BOOBY TRAP @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2018/08/09

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. The latest edition of Vagos Metal Fest not only lasted one day more than ever before, it also featured more bands per day – meaning the daily opening hour had to suffer some changes as … Continue reading

NULL POSITIV @ Hard Club, 2018/02/21

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Female singer as well, but completely different posture, NULL POSITIV followed suit. That so-German alternative, post-industrial sound which “recognizes the signs of the times”, to quote their own motto. Even if Elli Berlin joined THERION on stage to … Continue reading

Back in 2013, I flew to Stockholm exclusively to attend THE END OF GRACE‘s live debut (see here). Four years later I was flying to Göteborg for another of their gigs – my 7th – but I was totally unaware … Continue reading

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
