    Having perfected their distinctive and inimitable musical expression along a path that spans their 10-year long career, Process of Guilt are today one of the main driving forces on the Portuguese underground. Delivering massively heavy riffs on top of a punishingly precise, quasi-industrial, rhythm section, the band possesses a unique intensity that attracts listeners from a broad spectrum of music genres.
    Vastly experienced when it comes to playing live – having even shared the stage with bands like Godflesh, Cult of Luna or Napalm Death – their performances are pure displays of ferocity that leave no one indifferent. With the release of their third full length «Fæmin», in 2012, Process of Guilt finally took the long deserved leap to international recognition and acclaim – the album granted them two headlining European tours and a spot at the 2013 edition of Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, where they played to a full and enthusiastic crowd. After a split with Rorcal, Process of Guilt are now preparing their next full-length record, which will see the light in 2016.

    How much does the soul weigh? If it was measured by Lisbon doom outfit LÖBO, it would weigh a ton, according to their atmospheric downtempo masterpiece Alma, which is proof that heaviness, melody, and electronic elements can co-exist and can create aural landscapes capable of blackening your soul, yet lead you into the light at the end of the tunnel. Like the dawn after a death, there is an elegiac quality to Alma that simply pulls at the heartstrings while it simultaneously drowns you in leaden, crushing sound. It’s these contrasts that put LÖBO in general and Alma in particular in a league poignantly removed from conventional “doom”.
    For the members of Löbo, Alma has proved to be a highly influential piece of work which paved the way for several new acts and countless side-projects. Their history should not end here, and so LÖBO are regrouping and working once again to release a new piece of music that marks a new journey for all who have been missing their pulse live.

    Band from Porto coming with a feverish sound blending Voodoo cosmologies and Dub in an frenetically danceable Black Mass, aiming to unravel the sonic spectrum that connects King Tubby and Sun Ra with Macumba rhythms from the mental jungle.
    Assembled by multi-specter instrumentalist and producer Jonathan Uliel Saldanha (aka HHY), representing his Skull-Cave Dub, combining a feverish barrage of bone-percussion, sub-bass pressure, clusters of horns, The Macumbas band is constituted by musicians from the Soopa collective, an active part of portuguese exploratory music for more than 10 years.
    After an European tour with memorable shows in Berlin, Brussels, Paris and Bourges, and an array of enigmatic multidimensional performances in festivals like Sonár, Amplifest, Primavera Sound, NEOPOP, BOOM Festival, Milhões de Festa, 2014 saw HHY & the Macumbas debut LP ‘Throat Permission Cut’ hit the shelves and the band is now recording the second LP.

    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.
