COLD BLOODED

Yesterday, my friends Cold Blooded put up a song online from their debut demo “Protect Your Neck – Part Three”.

The track features guest vocals from Steal Your Crown‘s frontman Diogo, and finishes with some ragga flow!
Pretty fresh stuff, different from everything Portuguese hardcore bands are doing right now, and judging by the 300 plays the song got in less than 24H, I’m guessing the public is feeling it too!

I’ll be touring with them this weekend in Braga and Vigo, doing some roadie/merch guy/ Juicy promoter work, but for all you southern Portuguese fellas, don’t miss out on them on July 17th in Lisbon!

MASS MURDER BOOKING MYSPACE

OCTOBER MASSACRE FEST

Party time this Saturday.

All the respect to my friends at MassMurder Booking for putting up such a big effort.
It’s inspiring to see people I’ve known for so long and that I met through hardcore giving something back with so much heart.

The fest is gonna start in the afternoon and will be prolonged to the evening, but there will be a break for dinner. You can also check the music from all the bands playing in the fest by clicking on the link to the booker.

Support.

The Revolution Continues

This is gonna be some hard shit. Don’t even bother to bring the mosh, these bands will bring it for you.

I did this flyer by the way…no big deal, just some quick photoshoping to help out my friends at MassMurder.

It’s tomorrow. Don’t trip, show up.

There Goes the Neighborhood

World Moves Fast just reminded me of this song. Probably the only relevant hardcore (heavy metal too?) band formed by black guys besides Bad Brains. And no, Trash Talk doesn’t even count.

Just listen to that guitar solo at 1:55…they don’t do it like this no more. True hood music, from the real  ones.  And I’m not even a big fan of Body Count nor Ice T…I actually only like the first album lol.

My boys Steal Your Crown also recently use the chorus of this track as an intro to their shows. Great choice I must say.

BODY COUNT MYSPACE (only has recent songs, bummer)

Hardcore Weekend

This is where you should be on this upcoming weekend:

Great bands, good music, lots of friends playing and showing up for some party time…what more can you ask? Cheap door prices? You got it.

No apologies people, be there or be dead, seriously.

RUMO AO NÚCLEO DURO

This post should be written in portuguese, but I’m committed to this english thing here…hope some of my foreign visitors find the information useful anyway.

Tonight my friend Bruno (maybe you already know him by Vynn, his hip-hop alter-ego, or by his band Steal Your Crown) published part of the first official episode from the documentary he’s directing, called “RUMO AO NÚCLEO DURO”, on the new blog he created for the project.

This documentary, totally DIY, started somehow as a personal mission to show the hardcore reality in Portugal. From what’s visible on this first part of Episode 1, it’s being done on a personal level, with interviews and footage from shows over the years, but it’s also showing a very plural and humble perspective on the portuguese hardcore scene.

My first impressions ’bout this one are very good. Although not perfect on a technical level, it’s perfect on a level that only the ones who truly understand this thing of ours can appreciate.
This documentary shows the commitment and the honesty that everyone should be giving back to hardcore over the years…I’m used to seeing kids come and go, leeching all the knowledge and life experience hardcore gives and never giving anything back. Fuck that. This is the proof that you can give back in many ways, if you think for yourself.

It’s the 21st century man, you can do so much stuff behind a computer…if you don’t know how to play an instrument, don’t wanna get into a band, why not do something like this?
If you own a digital camera, record shows with it…you’re not gonna get robbed, this is hardcore! And if you took photos from shows, share them with everyone. Even if you ain’t a professional no one is gonna care ’bout that.
If you handle photoshop or similar software, get in touch with the bookers, do flyers for shows…do shirt designs for the bands…fuck man, if you know how to use word or notepad you can even start a zine or webzine from your computer!

I’ve done all of this myself, all of the examples I just mentioned, and never asked for shit, cause most of all it gives you life experience, it’s a way to be creative and give back to the scene…it keeps you in touch with people that have the same passions you do.

Be creative, be open-minded, DIY people.

Congratulations Bruno, for the courage and the dedication to do something like this. Hope the documentary grows into many more episodes.
