BASALTO @ Hard Club, 2018/09/21

Originally posted on Valkyrian Music. Then came the 99%-instrumental BASALTO. In fact, the first I’d seen them, a few months prior, I’d say they were an instrumental act. But this time, on the first and last track, guitarist António Baptista growled something … Continue reading

COUGH @ Vagos Metal Fest, 2017/08/13

AS THEY COME @ Oliva Creative Factory, 2016/03/11

The contest was over but the party wasn’t – last year’s winners AS THEY COME had been invited over to wrap up the night. I really enjoyed their gig at Casainhos 2015 (gallery here) but I found them even looser … Continue reading
