Revisited: PRIMORDIAL @ Hard Club, 2006/02/16

This gallery contains 45 photos.

Every PRIMORDIAL gig is a roller coaster of emotions and even if I can’t recall the specifics of this one – pretty sure I’ve shed a couple of tears on “The Coffin Ships” though – I still remember the general … Continue reading

HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD House Party, 2020/12/18

This gallery contains 90 photos.

Dedicated to everyone suffering from live music withdrawal, especially Sandrinha and Pipo. Live streams are far – waaaaaay far – from “the same thing” as live on-site’s, but it helps filling the void left by the lack of the latter. … Continue reading

INFRAKTOR @ Hard Club, 2020/11/06

This gallery contains 87 photos.

HardMetalFest, happening in Mangualde, is Portugal’s oldest metal festival – and the first to be held each year. For several reasons – most of them involving my day job – I’ve missed more editions than I’ve attended, but as INFRAKTOR … Continue reading

D.A.D. @ Hard Club, 2019/11/29

This gallery contains 48 photos.

If you only know D.A.D. for their 1989 hit “Sleeping My Day Away“, you really don’t know what you’re missing. Still it was a positive surprise to know that so many people here enjoy their music, to the point of … Continue reading
