1- Yes, this is our very first gig in Portugal. We’ve always wanted to go to Portugal, because of the stories about your amazing crowd and devotion to metal. We met a few Portuguese guys when we played at Wacken Open Air – they were really cool, and if the rest of the crowd in Portugal is just going half as crazy as they did on W:O:A, then we’re going to have a fucking blast at SWR Barroselas Metalfest. 2 - Well, we’ve been watching a lot of videos from the metalfest – it looks brutal! Great stage and great crowd! We hadn’t heard about SWR Barroselas Metalfest before we got booked to the show. But now that we know of it, we’re definitely going to spread the word about it. 3- All our shows are different from each other – we are creative on stage, and we’re always up for trying something new. But one thing is for sure – it’s going to be filled with lots of energy, brutal riffs and evil breakdowns. We’re going to hit Portugal on the 27th of April, and by that time, we’ve been touring all over Europe since the 14th of April. So we’re gonna be ready for you, that’s for sure! If you want to check out a few videos of our performance on stage, go to Youtube and search for APHYXION AT WACKEN OPEN AIR – there should be quite a few videos of our show there.

1- We already played on a barge in Porto with Cattle Decapitation and Beyond Terror Beyond Grace. It was in Summer 2010 and we spent really good time there with sardinhas, vinho verde and people. That was simply great !
2- Sure as hell I know this fest! We were invited at SWR in 2004 by Ricardo Veiga (Golden Pyre) with my other band Zubrowska. Sam was also drumming in the band at this period. The fest was not so famous because headliners were bands like Ackercoke, Machetazo... but it was really friendly! I remember it was raining all the time, so everyone we compelled to stay before the stage that was finally a good way to meet people, talk and enjoy music. It was actually not crazy but really friendly as I said. So, I expect this time to meet the craziest crowd ever thanks to the almighty power of vinho verde of death... or fresh water! 3- Just expect from us the best we can give. And we will do it, sure! Greetings in my own way? I just wish you all the best and let's go windsurfing at Guincho after the show!

1- It's our first time - we've played Spain a couple of times, but are looking forward to our first show in Portugal! 2- We've heard great things about the festival and Portuguese fans from our friends in Trigger The Bloodshed, who played SWR a while back. We're expecting a fucking awesome crowd!! 3- Three guys throwing down a sound they might expect from a group with double the members! We can't wait to show you guys what

And we're expecting the crowd to be absolutely INSANE! 3- They can expect full scale war, total annihilation, or simply put: a massive dose of old school death metal that will break their necks!

Last year they released the live album ‘OCCII Amsterdam’ so expect a big wall of sound when they hit the stage of the SWR Barroselas Metalfest!!
1- Nop this should be like our 8th time playing in Lusitania. 2- The expectations are really high to play in the biggest Iberian metal fest we are after it for a long time. I went last year to see Venom and it was great to have a meet and greed with VENOM, good beer, good food great shows. 3- Portuguese Metal heads can expect a discharge of violence, spikes, leather, bullets, and hopefully some fire. Hailz Lusitania be 1- It is. We've travelled there a few times, but prepared for the Satanicspeed Thrash Metal we've never played. War Machine!!! 2- We expect it's going to be chaos. We're massively influenced by some of the bands, so it's a killer day out for us.

Every audience is different, we'll see Line-Up: Apollyon (Bx); Horgh (Dr); Abbath what happens. 3- Ritualistic carnage, pounding drums, loud Doom Occulta (Gt/Vk). Who doesn’t know Immortal?

We have a cool 2012 year playing on big festivals as SWR, Neurotic, Hellfest … to support the release of Sheep’n’Guns, our latest album! 2- Like always: give our best to the crowd that will be in front of us!

True friend!), the audience was one of the sickest of your last tour! We also appreciate your local beers and food!! We know that we will have a good time at that show and we’re really pleased and excited to come play for the Portuguese fans! Ahah! We use to say to French metalheads that Portugal have the best crowd!!! 3- I hope they still want to see us of course! But we know that they want it: SCD and Portuguese fans are really linked! We have sometimes messages of support from fans of your country, our new album is well appreciated and we still receive shows propositions above all of that! Portuguese metal heads expect from us to deliver the most intense and sickest show! And we will do it! We’re more excited than ever to play in your country and also worldwide! SWR is gonna be really brutal!! Thanks Metal Horde Zine to let us spread our words! Be ready people from Barroselas: we have a meeting with all of you in April, 28th 2012 at SWR XV!

It’s gonna be our first tour over Europe and being at SWR Barroselas Metalfest certainly will be very special for us.

Line-Up: Peter Hasselbrack (Everything) One man band coming from North Carolina, USA formed around 2006 by Peter Hasslebrack!!

Last year he released through Comatose Music his third album entitled ‘The Death of Hope’, ten tracks of sadistic Brutal Death Metal!! In Barroselas Peter much probably will play with a 2nd guitarist supporting but let’s wait to see!!!
1- Yes, this will be the first gig Bloodsoaked has played in Portugal and I am very excited. 2- I expect a great crowd or Death and Black Metal fans that support the underground scene. Yes, I have been following the festival for many years from the USA and it always looks to be crazy. 3- Expect a full on Death Metal assault, I have been playing as a One-Man band for many years now and I will bring the brutality. There is a possibility that I will have a second guitarist for the festival but that has yet to be confirmed. To all the Death Metal fans in Portugal, Bloodsoaked will not disappoint you, I will crush skulls with the SICKNESS!!!
1- This will be our fourth performance at this fest, it has been an almost parallel growth between the band and the SWR: we’ve played for the first time in the 3rd edition in 200, then in 2005, 2009 and now 2012. We are Barroselas’ “veterans”! 2- We will present our new album “Lions Among Men” and as such, we will have new themes to present. As usual we have explored some new ideas in this new record and there is some curiosity to see how the public reacts to this new material. 3- The safe growth, almost step-by-step, of SWR is a good example for everyone – They knew how to learn, evolve and improve year to year, always having the concern to improve all the logistics of the fest. It conciliates as few the almost familiar environment, underground that characterizes it, with a professional attitude that all the bands that go through there recognize and appraise. When we recall the conditions we had in the first editions and see now to all the structure that surrounds the fest, there is no way to ignore the effort and dedication of all those involved to deliver, each edition, a better 1- Greetings from India. Yes, this will be the experience for everyone. first time Eccentric Pendulum is playing in Portugal. 2- We have heard a lot about the SWR Barroselas Metalfest. We are hoping that we have a good gig and that the people appreciate us. We do not know much about the crowd there, but we sure are expecting a crazy crowd like the other European festivals. 3- The metalheads can expect an an hour of groovy progressive metal with elements of thrash and death metal. Can’t wait to perform for you guys! Cheers! \m/ Line-Up: Arun Natarajan (Bx); Arjun Mulky & Faheemul Hassan (Gt); Vibhas Venkatram (Dr); Nikhil Vastarey (Vk).

1- Hi Nuno, first of all, thanks for open to Foscor the gates of Metal Horde, and please excuse my delay. Hope everything is fine there. In fact this is not the first time we visit Portugal, we played a couple of gigs with Corpus Christii on November 2007; we played in Braga with them and Nuklear Goat, and Lisbon plus Decayed and Flagellum Dei, which let us have a first approach to the Portuguese audience. Unfortunately there were not much people on both gigs, so we hope SWR Barroselas Metalfest XV could be now a good exposure moment to Portuguese audience after 4 years and a half since we landed there. Both gigs from 2007 let us know great people we have kept the contact with… so, we are sure this new raid in Portugal, before to have a new album in the next months, could be useful as introducing show to a big audience about what has Foscor developed last years. 2- We sincerely don’t know much things about this Fest and it’s conditions. We have seen videos, we have talked with some friend bands who played there… but again… we will arrive there just with the same wish we arrive to all the venues or places to play: give and show the best we have, and try to connect with people during the 30 minutes we will have. It’s difficult, but it’s the way this kind of Fests work. I know SWR has grown a lot last years, with a good exposure to the rest of Europe… last editions showed a great Line-up with bands not easy to see here. I think they are doing a great job brining this quality stuff to the Iberian fields… About the crowd…I prefer to arrive, watch, feel and evaluate after the show… he, he… If I should have to believe in what we lived in 2007, I would expect a more expectant and reflexive audience… But an Open Air Fest is so different, so… let’s see how people feel what Foscor emotions can bring them. 3- From the experience we have, I think one of the main values we have is the energy we know to transmit on stage. Foscor’s music bases most part of the content drawing emotional landscapes which let the listener flow in a very dynamic way through different audio densities. The most difficult thing when you have 30 minutes is to connect with people that don’t know too much from you, from the first moment… So, we will work a very intense setlist, based mainly on last album, which could make the audience suffer the maximum impact of emotions shots our music can. Something dense, dynamic and emotionally violent… See you all there on Sunday 29th guys, we will come and show how a fucking Catalonian Black Metal band can make you feel. Together in Darkness…

We will present you a great Doom ceremony with epic anthems shrouded by mystery and fantasy about lost cities and ancient races that dominated the deep and moist tropical 1- Yes, this is our first time playing in Portugal rainforests! and we are very much looking forward to playing in your country. 2- Well, we will perform our ritual as any other festival. Giving birth to an unlight for the masses to behold. Personally I am not too familiar with the festival itself but I know of its very good reputation and also that expectations from the visitors going will be high, due to the running order. We hope the audience will be as possessed by our music as we ourselves are. The crowd should expect a stage-performance that is not only shocking and repugnant, but also very highly spiritual and atmospheric in nature. Line-Up: Steve Harrison (Bx); Lance 3- We would like to say to everyone whom is Harrison & Mike Guerrero (Gt); Jorge attending SWR fest that we welcome everyone Iacobellis (Dr); Katon Pena (Vk). to come and see our show, to embrace us and Hirax is a Thrash Metal band from California, join us in a holy union with death.

Their first releases were the demos ‘Portraits of Regret’ in 2002 and ‘Demising Grace’ in 2004! That lead into a contract signing with Major Label Industries with whom they would release their debut full length in 2006 called ‘Renounce’! 2009 saw two releases by the band, first the split with UK based band Caina and after that their second album, ‘Erosion’, almost an hour of dark and destructive tunes!! 2011 brought the compilation ‘The Circle’ and 2012 saw the release of the album‘FÆMIN’ through Division Records and brings them again to Barroselas!!
1- After participating in the X and XIII editions, this will be our 3rd performance at SWR Barroselas Metalfest, and it has been chosen to present first hand some of the themes in our new álbum «FÆMIN». 2- It will be an intense performance! This date will be the beginning of a new concert cycle for «FÆMIN»’s presentation, so our expectations are very high when it comes to the audience’s reaction to the new themes. 3-When a festival reaches its 15th anniversary there’s not much more to say.

Line-Up: Alwin Zuur (Bx); Paul Baayens (Gt); Bob Bagchus (Dr); Martin van Drunen (Vk). Dutch Death Metal band formed way back in 1987 that need few introductions!!

In ’91 they released the ‘Promo’91’ and their debut album ‘The Rack’ followed in ’92 by the EP ‘Crush the Cenotaph’ and the second album ‘Last One on Earth’! In ’94 they released the album ‘Asphyx’, in ’95 a two track ‘Promo’95’ and in ’96 their fourth album ‘Embrace The Death’ (although all music in this album was recorded in 1990) and the fifth ‘God Cries’!

This year after their appearance in Barroselas they have scheduled the release of the 7´‘Reign of the Brute’ and the album ‘Deathhammer’ through Century Media!!
1- We have never played in Portugal, so we're excited! Personally I have never been in Portugal so hopefully we can check out the area a bit as well. 2- Actually I haven't heard from it yet, but I saw that the line-up is quite impressive. There are some bands I definitely want to see. Some Spanish friends told us that this festival in one of the best in the country, so we do have some expectations already. Asphyx is going to release a new album in February and is founded 25 years ago. A good reason to party, having some drinks and go crazy with us. 3- Asphyx krushes with high volume bang the heads off on stage and will give all energy we have. Portugal, show us where you are made of!
Line-Up: Christoph Erdmann (Bx); Rolf Meyn (Dr); Kevin Wittek (Gt); Volker ‘Iron Lung’ Frerich (Vk). Warhammer formed in ’94 in Germany to play as Hellhammer as they could do!! They never hide it and it’s just how things are!! Their first work was the album ‘The Winter of Our Discontent’ in ’97 followed in the same year by the demo ‘Towards the Chapter of Chaos’! In ’99 they unleashed their second album ‘Deathchrist’, in ’00 the third one ‘The Doom Messiah’, in ’01 the single ‘Apocalypse Unleashed’ and in ’02 the fourth album ‘Curse of the Absolute Eclipse’! After that album Volker decided to stop things for a while only reappearing on the scene again in 2006 with a couple live gigs one of them captured in what would become ‘Live Massacre 2006’ Dvd released in 2007!

1- Yes, it’s our first show in Portugal. 2- We were supposed to play SWR Barroselas Metalfest some years ago, but it didn’t work out. So this is our second attempt, and we’re looking forward to it very much! I have seen a VENOM-video from last year, and I like stagediving very much, so it’s cool, that this is allowed at Barroselas. We’re gonna play some cover-songs, and I like it, when the crowd sings along. As we are an Old School-orientated band, the songs are of course from the 80s, and I guess, everyone will know them. And when I look at the line-up so far, I am glad to share the stage with the likes of HIRAX, WHIPLASH or COFFINS. 3- We go pretty much crazy on stage! Lots of thrashing and headbanging. I don’t like bands, that just stand around on stage, that’s boring. And to all metalheads in Portugal: “If you don’t know our sound, and you’re maybe looking for technical Death Metal, you won’t find it with WARHAMMER. But if you’re willing to thrash to raw, simplistic and brutal Metal, that comes from the heart, we’re up to that! After all, our sound and style has not changed one bit over the years. See you in front of the stage! In the end, only Death is real!!”
Line-Up: Lalo (Bx); Yoye & Borja Suarez (Gt); Javi (Dr); Simón (Vk). Spanish band hailing from the region of Asturias, Legacy Of Brutality was formed in 2006. Their debut was out under the form of ‘Demon 2007’, a demo with three tracks of a powerful Death Metal followed in 2009 by the second demo ‘Land Of Empty Graves’ that was released as a promo pack very well designed, as an EP and as a limited edition! In 2011 they released their first full length entitled ‘Path of Forgotten Souls’ and this year they released the EP ‘Ad Bellum’!!
1- No, this is our 6th or 7th gig in Portugal. We've played in Güimaraes, Braga, Vila-real & Barroselas'09 between others. 2- It's an honour to play again in Barroselas and share the stage with bands like Immortal, Hypocrisy or Hail of Bullets... Of Course, we know the SWR very good. The first time that we've played there in 2009 was amazing! But this time will be better because we've more experience and better songs. And this time we play in the main stage, after midnight, we're
very proud and excited! 3- We know that you're crazy men! ;) You give it all in the gigs, enjoy it 'till death! Promise to give everything, lots of brutality, pure Death Metal attitude!! Ok, we greet to all motherfuckers that will be there! We want to see you all make headbanging, moshing and stagediving! Will be a memorable show.
Line-Up: Helder F. (Bx); Carlos & Jorge (Gt); Ricardo (Dr); Paulo (Vk). E.A.K. (or Extraterrestrial Alternative Knowledge) is a Portuguese Thrash/Death core band formed around 2001! Their first work was the demo ‘3 Steps To..’ in 2003 followed by their debut album ‘Musclecore’ in 2006! In 2008 they released the split CD ‘Bipolar’ alongside Crushing Sun and in 2011 Major Label Industries released their second album ‘MuzEak’ in 2011!!
1- Hi Metal Horde, to be honest I don’t remember how many times we’ve played at SWR, but I think this is our 3rd participation (or 4th, I don’t remember) you know, my memory is a bit fragilized due to all the radioactivity produced by our amplifiers! It is certain that we’ve played there in 2006 and in 2008. 2- The expectations are always the same in every gig we play which are, fun, good sound, new friendships, see and share the stage with good bands and present our sound to new people. 3-It’s really good!! To me it’s definitely the best extreme music fest in Portugal, and it even got better when they widened the range of music genres, and bands with other sonorities started to come and play. I hope they keep up the good work both in the fest as well as in their “new” venture with concerts in bars!
If we speak of Black Metal in Portugal you’ve to know Corpus Christii. Formed in 1998 by Nocturnus Horrendus, the mind behind it, they released their first demo in 1998, ‘Anno Domini’, followed by their debut full length in 2000, ‘Saeculum Domini’ and the split ‘Decadentia Christii’ alongside Decayed! 2001 brought the second album ‘The Fire God’ followed in 2002 by ‘In League With Black Metal’ and the EP ‘Master Of…’!! In 2003 come the fourth album ‘Tormented Belief’ followed a year later by ‘F.O.A.D.’ a split with Canada’s Thesyre! ‘The Torment Continues’ appeared in 2005 and two years later the EP ‘Lost Chapters’ followed in 2007 by ‘Rising’!! A year later came the EP ‘Carving A Pyramid of Thoughts’ and in 2011 ‘Luciferian Frequencies’ the seventh full length was out!!
1- Neither the first nor the second , Corpus Christii has been playing several times in this great SWR fest. The last time I think it was 2010 and it was a great pleasure indeed of playing there. Indeed, every Portuguese Metal band should play in this fest and be a part of the big SWR family. 2- The same as always, total commitment on stage, do the best possible and try to convert some individuals to the complex Black Metal World. Besides ideology, corpse paint and everything else there is the music, the music that can be appreciated even by people outside Black Metal. And of course, keep the flame burning for our followers. It has been a worthy battle to live, or should I say survive… 3- I’ve seen it all on this fest, I’ve been a constant presence and it’s amazing to see how the fest has been growing. I just regret that there are a lot of people that do not embrace this fest and rather go to bigger fests but with less quality. The SWR fest, although it has worldrenowned bands it is also a “showcase” to bring to light lots of bands that in other days we would never have the opportunity to know, even less to see them live! It is my case: I’ve known and admire lots of bands in this fest, so it definitely has a big impact on me.
Line-Up: Kyle Rutherford (Bx); Allan MacDonald (Dr); Paul McGuire (Gt); Simone Pluijmers (Vk). Scottish band Cerebral Bore were formed in Line-up: Nocturnus Horrendus (Vk); Live 2006 in Glasgow, releasing then the demo ‘The Members: Mist (Bx); Andrecadente (Dr); J Dead Flesh Architect’, four songs of Brutal & Angel-O (Gt). Death Metal influenced by the American
school! 2009 brought the single ’24 Year Party Dungeon’ and a year later they released their debut album ‘Maniacal Miscreation’ out by Earache Records!! In 2012 they released another single ‘Horrendous Acts of Iniquity’ and it’s expected their second full length in this year that they do their comeback to Barroselas!!
1- No we have played at both swr and butchery at Xmas time fests in the past 3 years. 2- I expect it to be hot and awesome!! I know that the organisers are a gang of pimps! I do! Last time was great, so if it's anything like that, it'll be a good one! 3- A set that will include tracks from our new album, due for release on earache records later this year! As well as a bunch from 'maniacal miscreation'. We will definitely supply the brutality in epic doses! To all you great Portuguese metalheads, we raise you the old \m/
Line-Up: Will Palmer (Bx); Andy Prestridge (Dr); Kevin Heybourne (Gt/Vk). Angel Witch comes from England and are one of the bands that were part of the NWOBHM!! Born in 1976 under the name of Lucifer they changed it to Angel Witch in ’78 releasing their first demo only entitled ‘Demo’ in ’79! A year later came the self entitled album that so many have praised and followed in the same year by two singles, ‘Angel Witch’ and ‘Sweet Danger’! In ’81 they released the single ‘Loser’ only followed two years later by the demo ‘Demo #3’ and in ’85 by the album ‘Screamin’N’Bleeding’ and the single ‘Goodbye’! In ’86 came the third album ‘Frontal Assault’, in ’87 the demo ‘Psychopathic’, in ’90 the demo ‘Twist of the Knife’ and the live album ‘Angel Witch Live’! The band then would split up just to re-unite again in ’98 with the demo ‘Resurrection’ followed in ’99 by the compilation ‘Sinister History’ with some unreleased stuff from the 70’s ad 80’s! In 2000 they released their second live album ‘2000: Live at the LA2’ followed by the EP ‘They Wouldn’t Dare’ in ’04!! In ’09 came another live album ‘Burn the White Witch – Live in London’ and 2012 was the year chosen to release their fourth album ‘As Above, So Below’ and to come to the SWR Barroselas Metalfest!!
Line-Up: Edgar Livengood (Dr); Amber Valentine (Gt/Vk). This Sludge Metal duo coming from the state of Georgia in the United States of America formed in 1993, soon started to be spoken in the Music media with the release of their EP in 96 called ‘Superman’! Their full length debut was released afterwards under the name of ‘Calling All Cars on the Vegas Strip’ two years later! A couple more EP’s, ‘Lambs’ in 2001, ‘War Bird’ in 2004 and a full length in between, ‘I Name You Destroyer’! They would then sign with Relapse Records with whom they released their third album, ‘If Thine Enemy Hunger’ in 2006 and the fourth ‘L’Autrichienne’ out in 2008! In 2009 they released a split EP with New York rock band, J.A.C.K called ‘Birds of a Feather/Obliterator’ and a split album with Canada based ‘Show of Bedlam’! A year later was time for ‘Throned in Blood’ their fifth album and 2011 for the five song EP ‘Nadir’ out by Nomadic Fortress!!
1- We've already played in Portugal five or six times before, one of them at SWR 2010. We really love the shows there, and the nature is so beautiful. Love the port wine too haha! 2- SWR is a really great festival done with love from the people who organize it and from the fans. We had such a blast playing there before and we can't wait to come back. Yeah we expect a crazy crowd, you guys have some of the best metalheads in the world! /m/ 3- Worship of everything we love in metal, playing really loud, with no boundaries, no bullshit, lots of sweat and probably some blood. We're just two people but we'll bring maximum apocalypse possible. Can't wait to rage together Portugal!! Line-Up: Mikael Hedlund (Bx); Horgh (Dr); Peter Tägtgren (Gt/Vk); Live Member: Tomas Elofsson (Gt). What can we say about Hypocrisy? Born in ’90 out of the mind of one man, Peter Tägtgren in Sweden soon thy would become one of the major bands in the Swedish Death Metal scene! Their first work was the demo ‘Rest In Pain’ in ’92 followed in the same year by the split 7’ ‘Nuclear Blast Promo EP’ alongside Afflicted, Resurrection and Sinister and their first album ‘Penetralia’! In ’93 came the EP ‘Pleasures of Molestation’ and the album ‘Osculum Obscenum’, in ’94 the EP ‘Inferior Devoties’ and the album ‘The Fourth Dimension’, in ’96 came the split 7´with country mates Meshuggah, the EP ‘Maximum Abduction’, the single ‘Carved Up’ and their fourth album
‘Abducted’ and in ’97 came the album ‘The Final Chapter’! In ’99 they released the live album ‘Hypocrisy Destroys Wacken’ and the album ‘Hypocrisy’, in 2000 the album ‘Into The Abyss’, in ’02 their eighth album ‘Catch-22’ was released and in ’04 it was time for ‘The Arrival’! In ’05 they started with the EP ‘Virus Radio EP’ followed by the split Promo-CD with Exodus and ending in their tenth album ‘Virus’! We had then to wait until ’08 to heard from Hypocrisy again when they recorded the EP ‘Don’t Judge Me’ and the album ‘Catch-22 V2.0.08’ a re-recording of the album with the same name from 2002! A year after came the album ‘A Taste of Extreme Divinity’ and the split 7’ with Norway’s Immortal and in 2011 they released the EP ‘Eraser (live)’ and the DVD ‘Hell Over Sofia – 20 Years of Chaos and Confusion’!!
Line-Up: Zé Pedro (Bx); P.G. & António C. (Gt); Diogo P. (Dr); C. Guerra (Vk). Holocausto Canibal is perhaps the most known Portuguese Grind Gore act! Born in 1997 in Rio Tinto (near Oporto) they soon shocked everyone with their ‘Opus I’ their first demo out in ’98 that blasted the mind of many in the Grind scene with their Portuguese Gore lyrics! After that came the EP ‘Gonorreia Visceral’ in 2000 and two years after their first album ‘Sublime Massacre Corpóreo’! In 2003 they released the split a split CD with Italian band Grimness 69 and in ’05 came ‘Morbosa Carnosidade Putrefacta’ split CD with Spain’s Mixomatosis! In ’06 they recorded their second album ‘Opusgenitalia’ and in ’08 released the compilation ‘Visceral Massacre Memorabilia’! This year in their 15th birthday they will release their third album in April called ‘Gorefilia’ and once more will give to everyone that dares to go to Barroselas a hell of a show!!
1- This will be the fifth time we play at SWR Barroselas Metalfest! We did it on 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2007. We’ve been to all editions as visitors. 2- To be present on the 15th anniversary of SWR Barroselas Metalfest comes with a great
significance to us because Holocausto Canibal also celebrates 15 years of existance!!! On the other hand we share again the stage with Immortal and Hypocrisy, 10 years after the first time. This will also probably be the first show date after our new album Gorefilia is released and the setlist will be predominantly based on this new album! It will be a very meaningful performance due to several reasons! 3- All you can say about this fest that has been around for 15 years becomes redundant! It’s in this persistence, continuity and longevity that lies the true festival essence. For more information about our next album please visit www.gorefilia.com, for more info on the band go to www.holocaustocanibal.com. Thank you Nuno and Inês [Metal Horde], as we have said before in Metal Horde’s pages it is good to keep grabbing a physical format fanzine thanks to you!!!GORE FOR PASSION NOT FOR FASHION!
Line-Up: Dank DeLong (Bx); Dan Foord (Dr); Tony Portaro (Gt/Vk). Whiplash was born in 1984 in New Jersey, USA by the hands of Tony Portaro! In that same year they released two demos ‘Fire Away’ and ‘Thunderstruk’ followed by another demo called ‘Looking Death in the Face’ in ’85! At that time their Speed/Thrash Metal was raising some heads and after signing with Roadrunner Recs in ’85 they release their first full length ‘Power and Pain’ followed a couple years later by ‘Ticket to Mayhem’ and in 1990 by ‘Insult to Injury’!! In ’96 they release ‘Cult of One’, in’97 ‘Sit Stand Kneel Prey’ and in ’98 reuniting the original line-up they record their sixth album ‘Thrashback’! In ’99 it’s released the ‘Messages in Blood’ compilation featuring songs from the early demos and some live cuts but by that time the band was on a hiatus! That hiatus was ended in 2009 when Tony Portaro once more wrote songs for Whiplash and recorded the ‘Unborn Again’ album!! Now in 2012 finally the Portuguese Metalheads will have the pleasure of seeing Whiplash for the first time in our country in the XV edition of the SWR Barroselas Metalfest!!
1- Yes, this is the first performance for Whiplash in Portugal. 2- All we were told is that it is normal for performances to start very late (early morning hours). The Whiplash set begins at 0130! I anticipate the Portugal crowd to be very crazy. Many Whiplash followers have been waiting for a long time to see the band live. Also, our music is very aggressive, and the live performance is always full of adrenaline. 3- We feed off of the crowd. So, the crazier they go....the more crazy we go. Are you ready?
We're gonna thrash your faces off, Portugal!!!! Listen to all the Whiplash music at officialwhiplash.com and visit our band Facebook page at Whiplash.
