OATHBREAKER
OATHBREAKER_3Os Oathbreaker provam que é possível encontrar um equilíbrio entre a harmonia e a agressão sem que sejam feitas concessões para qualquer um dos pratos da balança. Com ‘Rheia’, o terceiro disco do colectivo belga, os Oathbreaker continuam o caminho de expansão e reinvenção da sua música, iniciado com a estreia ‘Mælstrøm’ e consolidado com o sucessor ‘Eros|Anteros’, acentuando cada vez mais os contrastes entre a genética punk da banda, a influência do black metal, as ambiências nebulares do shoegaze e a emoção do post-punk. Depois da inesquecível actuação no Amplifest 2016, os Oathbreaker voltam a Portugal para duas datas em nome próprio: a 26 de Novembro no Musicbox, em Lisboa, e a 27 de Novembro no Cave 45, no Porto.
Oathbreaker are the living proof that is possible to find a balancing point between harmony and aggression without making concessions to any of the sides. With ‘Rheia’, the third full.length by the belgian collective, Oathbreaker keep expanding on their path of musical reinvention. After the debut ‘Mælstrøm’ and the successor ‘Eros|Anteros’, ‘Rheia’ shows the band accentuating even more the contrasts between their punk roots, the strong influence of black metal, shoegaze’s nebular atmospheres and post-punk’s raw emotion. After an unforgettable performance at Amplifest 2016, Oathbreaker are now set to return to Portugal for two shows – at Lisbon’s Musicbox on November 26th and in Porto, at Cave 45, on November 27th.

Depois da presença no Amplifest 2015, também James Kelly estará de regresso – acompanhará os Oathbreaker, em ambas as datas, com o seu trabalho a solo como WIFE. O caminho desde o black metal até à música electrónica pode parecer improvável, mas para o também mentor dos Altar of Plagues terá sido uma estrada em linha recta; expansiva, emocional e lasciva, a música de WIFE retém a aura pungente que faz a ponte entre as várias facetas de Kelly. Depois dos amplamente bem recebidos registos ‘Stoic’ e ‘What’s Between’, WIFE apresenta agora o seu mais recente EP ‘Standard Nature’, editado pela Profound Lore.
Also making an anticipated return is the british musician James Kelly, who’ll be supporting Oathbreaker on both dates with his solo act WIFE. The path from black metal to electronic music might not seem like an obvious one, but for Altar of Plagues’ mastermind James Kelly it may have been almost like a straight line. Expansive, emotional and lustful, WIFE’s bass driven pop music still retains a bleak element that can be traced back to Kelly’s past works with Altar of Plagues. After the widely acclaimed records Stoic and What’s Between, WIFE will now be presenting his latest EP Standard Nature, released on Profound Lore.

O arrebatador misticismo dos Wrekmeister Harmonies, que navegam o espaço intersticial entre o doom, o drone, o neofolk, a clássica e a música coral, evidencia-se mais do que nunca em Light Falls, o tomo mais ambicioso da curta mas prolífica carreira discográfica dos norte-americanos. Depois de colaborações tão diversas como Marissa Nadler ou membros dos Einsturzende Neubauten e dos The Body, entre tantos outros, os Wrekmeister Harmonies rodeiam-se de novo das melhores companhias: Sophie Trudeau, Thierry Amar e Timothy Herzog, dos incontornáveis e inimitáveis Godspeed You! Black Emperor, reforçam o colectivo encabeçado por J.R. Robinson, tanto em Light Falls como em palco, durante esta digressão em que o mesmo estará em foco. A estreia dos Wrekmeister Harmonies em Portugal – e o regresso de Sophie, Thierry e Timothy após a visita com os GY!BE no Amplifest 2012 – conta com uma apresentação no Porto, a 24 de Novembro no Passos Manuel.

The breathtaking mysticism of Wrekmeister Harmonies, who navigate the interstitial space between doom, drone, neofolk, classical and choral music, is more evident than ever in Light Falls, the most ambitious chapter in their short but prolific recording career. After collaborations with musicians as diverse as Marissa Nadler or members of Einsturzende Neubauten and The Body, among many others, Wrekmeister Harmonies have again surrounded themselves with the best companion: Sophie Trudeau, Thierry Amar and Timothy Herzog, of the inimitable Godspeed You! Black Emperor, reinforce the collective led by J.R. Robinson, both in the recording of Light Falls and on stage, during this tour in which it the new album will be in focus. Wrekmeister Harmonies’ Portugal debut – and Sophie, Thierry and Timothy’s return after visiting Amplifest in 2012 with GY!BE – includes a performance in Porto, on November 24th at Passos Manuel.

Peppered with overlapping moments of angelic beauty and bone-shaking doom.
The Quietus

Night of Your Ascension is truly an experience. It is an intricately layered musical experience crafted by a master composer with extraordinary vision and an obsessive attention to detail.
Cvlt Nation

Incredibly personal and easy to fall in love with (…) the soundtrack to your transcendent escape.
Metal Injection

Wrekmeister Harmonies’ pastoral doom has earned praise from Pitchfork, SPIN, Decibel and Invisible Oranges as a new form of metal composition and performance involving a wide variety of instrumentation.

Roster Amplificasom: Névoa

Névoa were formed in 2014 by Nuno Craveiro and João Freire in Porto, Portugal. After the well-received debut “The Absence of Void”, Névoa released “Re Un” through Avantgarde Music. This sophomore record pushes their craft to much greater heights, with Névoa expanding their sonic signature to include slower elements, psychedelia and traditional music into their melodic brand of black metal. Névoa presented “Re Un” in full for the first time at Amplifest 2016, and were regarded by many as one of the highlights of the event.

Continuamos a querer trabalhar com as bandas que se desafiam, que quebram barreiras musicais, que aceitam trabalhar arduamente para atingir os seus objectivos sem nunca deixar de lado o prazer que é toda essa viagem. Caríssimos Névoa, bem-vindos à família Amplificasom.
 
We still seek to work with bands and artists that challenge themselves, that break musical boundaries, and that accept to work hard to achieve their goals without leaving aside the joy in those endeavours. Dear Névoa, welcome to the Amplificasom family.

It’s hard to find massive albums that really engulf you from the start and grab you until the very last note. But Névoa’s Re Un is one of those albums.”
Metalstorm.net (staff pick)

If you appreciate creativity and a willingness to push our understanding as an audience, you’ll probably be as entranced by this thing as I was.
Nine Circles

Névoa have delivered a work with a very strong individual style, one that ranges from hard-hitting, supremely heavy and epic to the most delicate sounds and the most contemplative moods. “Re Un” would have to be a strong contender for album of the year for its driving, grinding sound and variety in style for many listeners.
Metal-archives.com

5.0 out of 5 stars.
A new and a fresh interpretation of one of the best atmospheric black metal music arriving from Southern Europe. This promising band can carry the listener to new worlds of dream and timeless absence relying upon astonishing vocals, instrumentation and composition.“
