Revisited: IN FLAMES’ “I, The Mask”

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. It’s been a while since I’ve stopped considering IN FLAMES “melodic death metal” (even if I labelled them as such when I reviewed “Battles”, after going with just “melodic metal” on the previous one, “Siren Charms”). … Continue reading

EVIL SYNDROME @ Metalpoint, 2019/08/31

Originally shot for World Of Metal. Some shots of EVIL SYNDROME opening for MOONSHADE. I believe they don’t have anything released yet, but they have a few tracks up on their YouTube channel. http://www.facebook.com/EvilSyndromePT/

VENDETTA FM @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/11

This gallery contains 42 photos.

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. Fourth and last day – the crowd was visibly tired (and thinner in numbers) to welcome VENDETTA FM in the beginning of the afternoon. But singer Jacob Cámara made sure to work everybody up with his … Continue reading

JINJER @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2019/08/08

This gallery contains 42 photos.

Originally shot for Glam Magazine. For my cousin Inglês. It seems that JINJER were somewhat afraid that the Vagos crowd wouldn’t like them very much, as their mix of groove + hardcore + prog didn’t “fit in” with the rest of … 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/

SAMAEL @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2019/07/27

This gallery contains 60 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Originally shot for Valkyrian Music. I’ve missed the “Ceremony Of Opposites” anniversary concert, by the end of 2016, meaning that it had been almost eight years since the last time I’d seen SAMAEL – the … Continue reading

SOLLAR @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2019/07/27

This gallery contains 54 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Originally shot for Valkyrian Music. It’s true that SOLLAR, as a band, are quite new (2016) and have released just one album (“Translucent”), so playing at the Porminho stage might have been a surprise to … Continue reading

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Originally shot for Valkyrian Music. Marco Fresco himself was the one saying this was the first time in twelve years that TALES FOR THE UNSPOKEN were on stage without founding member Nuno Khan. The guitarist … Continue reading

WRATH SINS @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2019/07/26

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Originally shot for Valkyrian Music. Also out of the Raising Legends label – but bearing a much heavier sound – WRATH SINS got on stage next. With a solid fan base, a big part of … Continue reading

W.A.K.O. @ Laurus Nobilis Music Famalicão, 2019/07/25

This gallery contains 72 photos.

Original Portuguese version on World Of Metal. Originally shot for Valkyrian Music. Different sounds devise different performances and it’s always unfair to elect “the best show”, so I usually avoid doing it. But this time it’s impossible not to award such title … Continue reading
