“Nada é de díficil compreensão, tudo é prazer e sofrimento, vivo, original, inesperado”. Mesmo no caos em que vivemos, temos mesmo para nós que a melhor resposta que podemos dar ao vírus é olhar e seguir em frente. Este é talvez o anúncio mais crucial de sempre de qualquer edição: aos Caspian, Cult of Luna e Holy Fawn juntam-se os AMENRA, Envy, Jo Quail, Oranssi Pazuzu, Telepathy e Wolves in the Throne Room para aquela que será […]

Uma tempestade pode ser bonita. Destructiva mas bonita. Ainda não sabemos ao certo o que retirar deste ano, mas independentemente de todos os obstáculos que tivemos e continuamos a ter, precisamos de o aceitar e continuar positivos.

Foi um 2020 de perda, luto, frustração, insegurança.. Mas também de muita união, solidariedade e, claro, dezenas de discos marcantes. Não é um ano para esquecer, não se esquece um ano assim.

A Amplificasom está de luto

Depois de em Maio nos ter sido recusado apoio (sem qualquer justificação) da Linha de Emergência, eis que 4 meses depois de entregue a candidatura à DGArtes, que solicitava um fundamental apoio financeiro ao Amplifest cujo foco eram as bandas portuguesas, o resultado foi negativo. Que o mundo não é meritocrático já o […]

Vai ser um semestre a zeros, com números bastante negativos aliás – logo veremos como vamos sobreviver a esta tempestade. Mas a vida, essa não está cancelada. TUDO o que interessa neste momento é mantermos a calma, ter uma preocupação construtiva, ter frieza necessária para as decisões do dia-a-dia e […]

Poster by Micaela Amaral

Poster by Micaela Amaral

Associated with the Church of Ra artistic collective, The Black Heart Rebellion have, as their peers, their musical roots in hardcore; their transition away from those roots, however, has been the most severe of them all. Ambient music, ritualistic drones, tribal percussion, neofolk and other languages all converge into […]

After playing at Amplifest twice – in the 2012 and 2015 editions, fronting the hypnotic despair of Amenra, Colin Van Eeckhout returns to present his solo work, released under the moniker CHVE.

Encompassing the celestial and the terrestrial, embracing both light and occult and belonging both to nature and magic, Hexvessel journey us into a forest where their autumnal, psychedelic folk melodies ring throughout the trees.

A dark road bridging doom, sludge and the vicious spew of hardcore is home for the power-trio Redemptus, one of the most lauded bands to come out of the Portuguese underground scene in the last few years. Punishing and tenebrous, but honest and emotional, Redemptus will unleash the […]

​A household name in the Latvian underground, Tesa have been perfecting their forward-thinking brand of noise-tinged post-metal for more than ten years now, with several records, tours and festival appearances on their resume.

With a sound that’s none but their own, Sinistro masterfully add a melancholy that’s borrowed from fado and from the very Portuguese concept of saudade – in the form of singer’s Patrícia Andrade poignant wail – atop a barrage of monolithic riffing and haunting melodies. Semente, the latest album, released […]

Oathbreaker aren’t ones to be afraid of experimentation; the Belgian band, affiliated with the Church of Ra artistic collective – along with Amenra, Hessian and others – have always tinted their vicious brand of hardcore with foreign elements such as shoegaze’s cloudy scapes, black metal’s fierceness and post-punk’s raw […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: PRURIENT

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

The most infamous of all of Dominick Fernow’s many alter egos, Prurient is also the one that holds the most destructive power. Abrasive, confrontational and uncomfortable, Prurient’s artistic output has shifted from the raw waves of noise and static of its earlier years to something way more contrasting, with […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: HOPE DRONE

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Despite their relative youth as a band, the border between being promising and being a certainty has long been crossed by Hope Drone. Cloak of Ash, their debut for Relapse, is an 80 minutes long tour-de-force throughout the post-black metal and doom realms, with the Australian outfit interlocking melody […]

Being one of the genre’s most recognized names, but without ever succumbing to repeating post-rock’s most immediate formula, and taken by a constant need to overcome their past selves, Caspian always faced every step of their career as a renaissance, as an opportunity for reinvention and expansion of their […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: KOWLOON WALLED CITY

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Borrowing their name from an overcrowded, lawless and rat-infested slum, Kowloon Walled City’s music perfectly embodies such bleakness and negativity with their hypnotic intertwining of sludge, noise rock and post-hardcore. Opressive but intimate and introspective, and with a thick, palpable tension dripping from each word, each note and […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: MINSK

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Back from a hiatus, and with new blood in their ranks breathing life into their atmospheric and psych-infused post-metal, Minsk are finally set to make their long overdue return to Portugal, where they last played in the too distant year of 2009. Their rebirth brought with it The Crash & The […]

​​Foi há três anos que, parcamente iluminados por uma solitária lâmpada que pendia sobre o centro do palco, os Aluk Todolo desenrolaram sobre o Amplifest as caleidoscópicas tapeçarias sonoras do álbum Occult Rock; as memórias deste concerto ficaram de tal modo firmadas em quem a ele assistiu que a […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

There is an almost liturgical solemnity in Anna von Hausswolff’s music; contrasting languages like drone, folk and progressive rock are deconstructed, reinvented, resumed from scratch and expanded into unknown territories, guided by the mournful and idiosyncratic voice of this swedish singer and multi-instrumentalist. The Miraculous, her third and most recent work, […]

AMPLIFEST 2016: MONO

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Artwork by Micaela Amaral

Blurring the lines between post-rock and neoclassical music, Japanese quartet MONO seek, in their own words, to ‘communicate the incommunicable’. Seamlessly shifting through chiming melodies, grandiose orchestrations, thundering percussion and menacing walls of volume, MONO’s music captures and reflects every nuance of our emotions – from sadness to joy, […]
