HEAVEN SHALL BURN @ Vagos Open Air, 2015/08/07

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. But it was HEAVEN SHALL BURN who swept Vagos off its feet. Literally. The moshers and crowdsurfers had a field day. And the screamers too, as I believe this was the show with the loudest chorus sing-alongs … Continue reading

VILDHJARTA @ Vagos Open Air, 2015/08/07

Originally written for Valkyrian Music. I was a little puzzled by VILDHJARTA’s presence in this festival. A MESHUGGAH-like band who hasn’t released anything new in two years nor have near-future plans except for a vinyl edition of their only full-length “Måsstaden”. An … Continue reading

ANNIHILATOR @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/09

This gallery contains 63 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. In their own old-school way, ANNIHILATOR were top as well. They released a new album last year, titled “Feast”, so they played a few songs in order to promote it – “Smear Campaign”, which opened the … Continue reading

BEHEMOTH @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/09

This gallery contains 81 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. But in my humble opinion, it was BEHEMOTH who put up the greatest show – even in daylight! They were also missing their cobra microphone stands and some other paraphernalia, just the cloaks and make-up. And … Continue reading

THE HAUNTED @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/09

This gallery contains 81 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. Not sure when THE HAUNTED had played here last, but it’d been quite a while. To say the crowd was eager for this gig is an understatement. And while you can never read Jonas Björler’s expression, … Continue reading

ANGELUS APATRIDA @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/09

This gallery contains 48 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. ANGELUS APATRIDA, on the other hand, unleashed hell – kicking off with “Violent Dawn”, violent is the right word to describe the circles. The Spanish thrash metal act has a solid fan base here, but even … Continue reading

REQUIEM LAUS @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/09

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. Despite the 1-day tickets for Saturday being sold out and their much longer career – 16 years longer, to be exact –, REQUIEM LAUS didn’t have a crowd as big as GATES OF HELL had had the … Continue reading

KREATOR @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/08

This gallery contains 69 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. Okay, it’s true that a KREATOR gig is always a KREATOR gig, and even when they’re bad, they’re still pretty good. But sometimes they’re REALLY awesome – like this time! From “Mars Mantra / Phantom Antichrist” to “Flag … Continue reading

EPICA @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/08

This gallery contains 93 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. There were LOADS of EPICA fans in Vagos, so whoever thought it was a mistake to invite them again (they performed at the first edition of the fest) couldn’t be more wrong. Simone Simons’ voice was … Continue reading

SOILWORK @ Vagos Open Air, 2014/08/08

This gallery contains 78 photos.

Originally posted in Valkyrian Music. It had been 11 years since I’d last seen SOILWORK – which was the last time they’d played in Portugal. So I don’t know if it’s usual for them to use THE ALAN PARSON’s “Sirius” as … Continue reading
