CANDLEMASS @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/08

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. For my godfather. Bassist Leif Edling said something like “a rainy night and a doom band – how appropriate”. What he didn’t say, but pretty much every CANDLEMASS fan felt, was how such sense of fitting … Continue reading

PROCESS OF GUILT @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/08

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. PROCESS OF GUILT still like to hide behind smoke and a blue light show that darkens the stage more than lightens it… Meaning I’m not exactly fond of shooting them, not to mention that all the … Continue reading

PAINTED BLACK @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/08

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. Singer Daniel Lucas didn’t exactly missed a brilliant career as a comedian – although it was somewhat funny mentioning Donald Trump‘s theory about global warming when it was about to rain like hell in August. This … Continue reading

BASALTO @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/08

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. Not every stoner/doom band manages to enthrall the audience in broad daylight like BASALTO did. Mostly instrumental, they brought to Vagos their latest work “Doença” with an intense performance. http://www.facebook.com/basaltostoner/

BASALTO @ Hard Club, 2018/09/21

COUGH @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2017/08/13

TRIPTYKON @ Vagos Open Air, 2015/08/08

WEB’s “Everything Ends”

Even though they’re labelled as thrash metal (including by themselves), WEB have always been more than that. More than ever, “Everything Ends” justifies both whys – why thrash metal and why “more than that”. WEB had already courted the doom … Continue reading

PAGAN ALTAR @ XX HardMetalFest, 2014/01/11

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. The spirits cooled down a bit with the British doom of Pagan Altar. But as soon as Terry Jones got on stage, in his Victorian outfit and embraced by blue smoke, the power went down! It had already … Continue reading
