Relationships are made upon mutual respect and longevity, and throughout the years of our existence in the musical field as humble but devoted journalists, we have frequently elevated and in magnificent occasions, reported live events directly from infamous International festivals. Amid the wide range of wicked festivals, Czech Republic Brutal Assault Festival always had a particular place amongst us, not simply due to its notorious success but also its vivid persistence to continuously develop.
Colombia certainly has a major tendency to gift metal fans with randomly selected musical numbers throughout the year, and such satirical attempt to delight them all has failed more often than it should. Still, the collective effort to generate revenue fails due to the duplication of such events, or namely, the bands chosen to perform. On certain occasions, International bands play twice in the same year, if not for a third time in a row. Apparently, promoters are limited in which regards to the bands they are willing present to the general public, and this evidence transpires quickly when we talk about the oversaturated Festival Del Diablo, the more I feel invited to concentrate my attention solely in the headliners, Carcass.
It seems that the future for Gothenburg based, Swedish melodic death metal veterans At The Gates turns out to be naught more but promising and extremely intensive. Lately, the Swedish quintet announced that they are gearing up to embark in the infamous Decibel Magazine fourth touring edition, which gathers besides them as headliners, the supportive blasts from United States hardcore unit Converge and United Kingdom’s old-school death metal supergroup, Vallenfyre, still with an opening special appearance yet to be announced during this December, 2014.
Unavoidable, when referring to the Portuguese metal scene, somber goth-is melodramatic Moonspell is the top-notch exponents of an entire country, or at least, the foremost recognizable act arising from my country in the past decade, alongside with the doom gothic eloquence of Heavenwood, and the insanely fresh and brutalization of Holocausto Canibal.
