TARANTULA @ Laurus Xmas Special, 2018/12/15

And then TARANTULA closed the bill. After their gig in the summer (see here), my expectations weren’t exactly high. I was right not to raise the bar… http://www.facebook.com/Tarantula.Official/

BIZARRA LOCOMOTIVA @ Laurus Xmas Special, 2018/12/14

This gallery contains 42 photos.

The lights had been pretty bad throughout the night, but they seemed to get worse for headliners BIZARRA LOCOMOTIVA. It fitted the darkness of their sound and image, I get that, but it really pisses me off to shoot under … Continue reading

REVOLUTION WITHIN @ Laurus Xmas Special, 2018/12/14

This gallery contains 57 photos.

I’d heard rumors about guitarist-Adriano leaving REVOLUTION WITHIN, but until this show, that’s just what they were – rumors. But then Raça announced this was his last show. I could say it was a hell of a goodbye, but all … Continue reading

HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2017/07/28

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Death-grind isn’t for everybody’s ears, so having HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL closing the bill was the right decision – the ones who couldn’t endure such extreme sound could leave (and a lot did…) and those who enjoyed it had the … Continue reading

HEAVENWOOD @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2017/07/28

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. I dare saying that HEAVENWOOD were awaited just as eagerly as the headliners – and that eagerness was rewarded. In the 25 years they’ve been around, there’s close to nothing in their songwriting that one can finger-point; their … Continue reading

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Despite being announced on the fest website that URBAN WAR would close the bill of the smaller stage, it seems the plan was for them to play on the prime one all along. Well, the energy of singer … Continue reading

FINAL MERCY @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2017/07/28

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. The action moved to the bigger stage, with FINAL MERCY literally storming it. It had been about seven years since I’d last seen them and probably as many line-up changes since the first, a decade ago; and while … Continue reading

IN.VERNO @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2017/07/28

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Then from Spain came the “dark metal” of IN.VERNO – meaning heavy melodies spiked with synths, with a beautiful female voice mingled with male growls. This was still part of the band’s Insanity Tour, promoting their second album … Continue reading
