undersave-2UNDERSAVE (PT) – Death Metal

 UNDERSAVE is a Death Metal band from Lisbon (Portugal). The band started as a three piece in 2004 with Nuno Braz doing guitars and vocals, João Nascimento on the second guitar and Gonçalo Neves on the drums.

The first demo was recorded in 2005 at Garagem 22 studios in Almada with Paulo Vieira (The Firstborn, Namek, Midnight Priest, Alkateya, Pussyvibes, etc). “Domestication of the Human Race” was the name of the demo, and was self-released in 2005 on CD-R.

After hundreds of rehearsals and some gigs, appeared five new songs that formed the EP “After the Domestication Comes The Manipulation” [2008]. It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Brugo Sound Studios with Hugo Camarinha (Bleeding Display, Theriomorphic, Decayed, etc). The band once again released it, this time on a professional format. Before the live promotion of the EP, André Pisco (bassplayer) joins Undersave.

After some gigs, Gonçalo Neves left and Hugo Pote replaced him on the drums. After several shows in Portugal promoting the new EP, André Pisco and João Nascimento left the band.

In 2011, after 1 year of composition, Undersave began the recording of the debut full-length again with Paulo Vieira at Brugo Sound Studios and Mosphit Studios. The debut album, named “Now…Submit your Flesh to the Master’s Imagination” come to light in 2012 and an intense live promotion followed.

After some shows with only 2 members, in 2012 a new guitar player, Daniel Pereira, joined the band, followed by Diogo Almeida, who entered in 2013 to handle the bass. Then again, the following year (2014) brought new changes on the line-up: Diogo and Daniel decided to follow a different path, and two new members replaced them, João Jacinto on the guitars and Renato Laia on the bass.

But the constant line-up changes did not stop there: in 2015 it was time for the long-time drummer of the band, Hugo Pote, to decide quit the project. After a few months of searching for a new drummer, Pedro Pereira joined the band.

It was assembled the group that soon would record the album that was to follow “Now… Submit Your Flesh (…)”. With much of the composition of the songs taking place during the mentioned changes in the band, and after several rehearsals with the new formation, the band went to studio in 2017, joining efforts again with producer Paulo Vieira for the recording of the second album of originals “Sadistic Iterations: Tales of Mental Rearrangement”.

The album, which is completely recorded and mastered, still waits for a label and plans are to release it in the near future.

TERROR EMPIRE (PT) – Thrash Metal

2017 sets the release of the Terror Empire album “Obscurity Rising” (Mosher Records), in which the always-present political tone goes up a notch, and the result is a crushing record blending thrash metal hooks with death metal blast beats and vocals that should keep you in your toes for almost 40 minutes. Produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by the drummer João Dourado in his Golden Jack Studios in Coimbra, “Obscurity Rising” sounds as massive as a modern metal album should sound like, nowadays.

Terror Empire is a thrash metal band from Coimbra, Portugal, formed in 2009. Inspired by the great thrash metal bands of the eighties and some of the old-school death metal bands from the nineties, the band manages to create a unique corrosive approach to their sonic attack.

In 2015, Terror Empire released “The Empire Strikes Black” (Nordavind Records), which was very well received by reviewers and metal fans all over the globe.




DALLIAN (PT) – Progressive Death metal/Symphonic

From the alchemical merging of “Metal” music and the aesthetics of “Steampunk”, an unlikely synthesis is born, giving rise to “Dallian”, a band hoping to fill a void in this still very underexplored fusion.

 Rising in 2017 from the centre of Portugal, in the small city of Leiria,

Dallian is a band with roots on a solid background of modern Death Metal with added virtuosity of symphonic elements, all arranged in progressive dynamics.

“I really appreciate the complexity and textures you can get from using orchestral elements.” Explains Carlos, “This larger sound pallet adds more depth to the chord progressions. We didn´t limit ourselves to the orchestra standard too, implementing also more obscure, less common traditional instruments from several different cultures, which contributes to the exotic feel of our work. “

 Aesthetics contribute a lot to the overall sound of the band, elevating it with a grittier, darker form of steampunk. Thus, this concept not only lets our music’s sonic qualities shine through, but also its lyrical contents, which rely on the occult, spirituality, internal human conflict and human enlightenment typical of the Victorian era.

 “It is very story driven. “Emphasises Carlos, “Most of our lyrical content relies very heavily in a story telling element. The emphasis is mainly on the bleaker side of a steampunk society, instead of a more mainstream “glamorous” approach on this fictional setting.”

 It is exactly that motif we find painted on the canvas of the group´s debut album “Automata”. An one hour epic, due to release 25th May, 2018, thus setting in motion the band´s inaugural national tour at full steam!

 “We also rely on the psychology of the filthy greed of the human being, representing it visually as a pig and his gluttony, a metaphor in a context of political world domination. However…” Carlos pauses reflective, before he resumes “…there is always a silver lining to counter balance such darkness, thus resulting in an allegory of the human condition, a deconstruct of norms, human nature and, in essence, duality.”

 “All of this is Dallian.”
